David Garrard Could Fit Into Kansas City Chiefs Quarterback Picture

The Kansas City Chiefs must figure out their quarterback situation at some point this offseason. There has been an admission already to know the system is broken, as the front office has been clear that competition will be brought in for Matt Cassel in some form. The question is whether the Chiefs are going after the big free agents on the market like Peyton Manning or whether they're wiling to draft a Ryan Tannehill or Brandon Weeden.

There are other options, of course, in the free agent market and the Chiefs are already familiar with Kyle Orton and what he could bring. Nathan Jahnke of Pro Football Focus has a new name for the Chiefs to consider along with Chad Henne and Peyton Manning: David Garrard.

Jahnke writes, "The name that could make the most sense is Chad Henne (+3.9). He has shown some sparks in Miami, and the Chiefs new offensive coordinator is Brian Daboll who most recently was the offensive coordinator of the Dolphins. If the Chiefs are in a "win now" mindset, David Garrard after a year off, should be ready to lead an offense from day one. Although he’s not a free agent yet, if the Chiefs were to bring in Peyton Manning and he was even close to being fully healthy, they would instantly become one of the most dangerous offenses in the league.

Whoever the Chiefs decide to bring in, he's stepping into a fairly pleasing scenario with so many offensive weapons. The defense is mostly set, so the Chiefs could be poised to move forward in an major way in 2012 with the right addition.
