Here's why: (1) Chiefs backup Brady Quinn won the No. 2 job, but injured his neck during his final preseason performance. Kafka would be an insurance grab in Kansas City, where Quinn hasn't dazzled.

UPDATE:Kafka became a free agent Saturday morning after clearing waviers, NFL.com and NFL Network's Albert Breer reports.
