Ricky Stanzi QB JAC 8 Months
Chiefs QB Ricky Stanzi has been working as a fourth-stringer early in camp.
He's behind Alex Smith, Chase Daniel, and undrafted rookie Tyler Bray. Once hailed as "the next Tom Brady" by some draftniks, 2011 fifth-round pick Stanzi's chances of making the 53 are considered "slim" by the Kansas City Star.

Chiefs QB Ricky Stanzi "might have the early edge" over undrafted rookie Tyler Bray for No. 3 duties.
That doesn't mean Stanzi is going to win the job. Stanzi has reportedly just picked up new coach Andy Reid's offense quicker. Bray undoubtedly has better physical skills, and he has as strong an arm as anyone in the league. The Chiefs are "hopeful" Bray can beat Stanzi out for the job, and we'd bet he will.

Ricky Stanzi remained the Chiefs' No. 3 quarterback in Wednesday's practice.
It's a strong indication he won't get into Sunday's meaningless finale, and an even stronger one that he'll likely find himself on the street in 2013. If Stanzi had any sort of a future at all, he would have already seen snaps ahead of Kansas City's dreadful 1-2 duo of Matt Cassel and Brady Quinn.

Chiefs head coach Romeo Crennel said "there's a possibility" second-year QB Ricky Stanzi could start in Week 16 against the Colts.
Brady Quinn suffered a rib injury in Sunday's shutout loss to the Raiders and will be evaluated this week, while Matt Cassel just isn't considered an option under center anymore. Stanzi has yet to appear in a regular season game since being a fifth-round pick in 2011. In six preseason appearances, Stanzi has completed 27-of-52 passes for 304 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions. He offers zero long-term appeal.

Second-year QB Ricky Stanzi is yet to take an NFL snap.
Since the Chiefs used a fifth-round pick on Stanzi in 2011, they've used Matt Cassel, Kyle Orton, Tyler Palko and Brady Quinn at quarterback. Stanzi hasn't even sniffed the field, often not even dressing on Sundays. It's a bad sign for his long-term NFL prospects if he can't even get a look for the 1-9 Chiefs down the stretch.

Coach Romeo Crennel left the door open for Ricky Stanzi to see game action if Brady Quinn (concussion) isn't cleared for Week 10.
"We will evaluate it and see which way we go," Crennel said. We are tentatively expecting to see Quinn back under center versus the Steelers, who should be picked up as a spot fantasy defense start in any league where they remain available. Crennel may have seen enough of Matt Cassel, who has more turnovers than all but one entire team in the NFL.
