Signs pointed to QB Brodie Croyle re-signing with the Chiefs when he hit free agency this offseason — until he started the Week 14 game. Playing in place of Matt Cassel (appendectomy) at San Diego, Croyle completed just 7-of-17 passes for 40 yards in a 31-0 defeat. Although the Chiefs had expressed much confidence that Croyle could come in and run the offense, they didn't back up their words, as their ultraconservative play-calling showed their lack of faith in the fifth-year passer. Now 0-10 as an NFL starter, we hear that Croyle's inept showing under center likely will force Kansas City to look elsewhere for a No. 2 quarterback next season. Not only will the Chiefs likely be unwilling to fork over the money Croyle will be looking for, but they might not have any desire to re-sign him following his most recent performance. If they aren't able to find a dependable veteran in free agency, we're told K.C. very well could target a QB late in the draft.
