Quinn In, Cassel Out As Starting QB For Kansas City Chiefs

J. Meric/Getty Images(KANSAS CITY, Mo.) -- The Kansas City Chiefs named Brady Quinn their new starting quarterback on Monday, replacing Matt Cassel.  

The Chiefs won the AFC West division two years ago with Cassel under center, but are off to a 1-5 start this season.

Cassel suffered a concussion against Baltimore back in Week 5, giving way to Quinn, who started for the first time since 2009 against Tampa Bay.  The 27-year-old Quinn finished the game 22-38 for 180 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions as the Buccaneers rolled, 38-10.

On the season, the 30-year-old Cassel is 103-176 for 1,150 yards along with five touchdowns and nine interceptions.
