So he signed with the Chiefs to backup Alex Smith?“I did the best thing for my career. I wanted to be a part of a winning program and wanted to get a chance to compete. I understand my role on this team right now is to back up Alex Smith. I understand he’s the starter. But that doesn’t mean I’m not going to compete every single day to push him. He’d be the first one to tell you that’s what makes a good quarterback (group).”
Very happy for Chase:Pulling for Chase to get the 1 spot he knows what it takes to be a winner in the league.
Seems it was his decision, not the Saints', because he wanted to compete for the job.Ok so why didn't the Saints resign him?
So, if that's true, then you answered your own question.plus lets face it... he has a better chance of starting behind Smith and Brees.
