The Ultimate Backup Plan

A true son is coming home. On the same day Kansas City made their trade with the San Francisco 49ers official for QB Alex Smith, the Chiefs signed former Missouri Tiger QB Chase Daniel to a three-year deal to become the team’s backup. After going undrafted out of Missouri in the 2009 draft, Daniel ultimately ended up with the New Orleans Saints where he served as Drew Brees’ backup for the past three seasons. In his NFL career, Daniel has completed 7 of 9 passes for 55 yards. Ironically, Daniel’s first career collegiate start with the Tigers came at Arrowhead Stadium. Jason La Canfora of believes the deal could be worth more than $3 million annually. Daniel, however, wasn’t the only signing the new Chiefs regime made on Tuesday. Kansas City also signed free agent TE Anthony Fasano to a reported four-year contract and defensive end Mike DeVito to a 3-year, $12.6 million deal with $8 million in guarantees.
