Chiefs trade Tyler Thigpen to the Dolphins

From: KCSTAR.COM, Kent Babb

The Chiefs have traded quarterback Tyler Thigpen to the Miami Dolphins, for an undisclosed draft pick.

Thigpen was Kansas City’s third quarterback in the team’s 34-14 loss at Philadelphia this past Sunday, and he has taken only two snaps this season. Thigpen started the majority of the Chiefs’ games last season after Brodie Croyle and Damon Huard suffered season-ending injuries.

His mobility and improvisation made him a tough quarterback to plan for, and he led the Chiefs to a victory against Oakland.
The Dolphins reportedly lost quarterback Chad Pennington to a season-ending shoulder injury.

Chad Henne had been mentioned as Pennington’s replacement, but Thigpen has far more experience as an NFL quarterback than the 24-year-old Henne, a second-round pick in last year’s NFL draft

    Wow, if Thigpen is third choice for Chiefs and ends up first choice in Miami it shows how weak the Dolphins are at quarterback. Methinks it’s going to be a long season in Miami.

    No shows how smart Miami is and how dumb Chiefs are.
