Chiefs to host Brady Quinn

The Kansas City Chiefs once again have interest in a former Denver Broncos quarterback. has learned that Brady Quinn will soon be taking a free-agent visit.

Quinn served as Tim Tebow’s backup last season after Denver released former starter Kyle Orton. The Chiefs claimed Orton, who was 2-1 as a starter, but lost him to Dallas in free agency on Wednesday.

Quinn was scheduled for a free-agent visit Friday with the New York Jets but that was canceled when the club signed Detroit’s Drew Stanton as the new backup for starter Mark Sanchez.

A 2007 first-round draft pick by Cleveland, Quinn took a free-agent visit Thursday with St. Louis. He has 12 career starts but hasn’t played in a game since the 2009 season.

If signed by the Chiefs, Quinn would serve as the backup to projected starter Matt Cassel. Kansas City has expressed interest in free-agent quarterback Peyton Manning but the feeling wasn’t mutual.
