Chiefs Predicted To Go After Jason Campbell To Compete With Matt Cassel At Quarterback

Several NFL teams are planning their roster moves for the 2012 NFL offseason as they scout various players at Pro Days and exhibition games. They're also sizing up player costs and figuring out the free agency market. Specifically, several teams are considering what to do at the most important position on the field: quarterback. Some hope to lock in on Robert Griffin III or Andrew Luck in the draft, while others are curious about Matt Flynn or even Peyton Manning as current player options. Should be interesting to say the least.

Walter Football is predicting just which team will do what in the offseason and they believe the Kansas City Chiefs will go with a veteran arm to come in and compete with Matt Cassel. Unfortunately fans will not likely enjoy their choice of Jason Campbell, although we've also mentioned here that it's likely an option.

WalterFootball has the following on the Chiefs, "The Chiefs aren't really in a position to do anything with the quarterback position this offseason. Scott Pioli will give Matt Cassel another year, as his options are very limited right now. I do think Kansas City will sign Jason Campbell to be a solid backup in the event of another Cassel injury. Jim Zorn, the team's current quarterbacks coach, worked with Campbell when the two were in Washington."

Campbell would team with Cassel in training camp to compete for the top spot. At the very least the move would also mean a complete avoidance of the Tyler Palko experiment from last year. The Chiefs likely lost the division because of the decision to play Palko as the starter for four consecutive games. In a division won by just one game, that's a major factor.
