After visiting with the New York Jets and then the Kansas City Chiefs Brady Quinn decided on the Broncos division rival in KC.  Regardless of what happens in the Peyton Manning saga Denver will have to look at building QB depth after releasing Orton mid-stream and losing Tebow’s backup in Quinn to free agency.  The now journeyman QB never developed in Denver after being traded away from Cleveland where he was the home town golden boy.  Critics now have more fuel for their argument that moving the productive Peyton Hillis for Quinn was a bad move all around.  Having Quinn and Hillis land in Kansas City only rubs salt in the Broncos’ wound.

The man who had a strange dis-like for Hillis’ skill set, Josh McDaniels, acquired his old Broncos offensive toy as well this weekend.  Free agent Brandon Lloyd signed with the Patriots giving Tom Brady one more target (as if he needed it).  The Pats retained Wes Welker with their franchise tag before the opening of free agency and still have a near unstoppable tight end duo.  This addition arguably gives New England the best AFC offense on paper.
