Tyler Bray beats out Ricky Stanzi

It appears Tyler Bray will be the Kansas City Chiefs' third-string quarterback.

The team cut third-year quarterback Ricky Stanzi. Thus, Bray, an undrafted rookie from Tennessee, will be the No. 3 quarterback behind starter Alex Smith and backup Chase Daniel.

This was the expected outcome. The Chiefs are extremely high on Bray and he was brought in by this new regime. While he has an extremely strong arm, Bray’s game needs to grow from a mental standpoint. The team thinks he can learn from Smith and Daniel.

Because there is such a dearth of quarterback talent, I’d think Stanzi, who was a fifth-round pick in 2011, will get other opportunities.
