Former Chiefs and Cardinals QB Brodie Croyle has retired from football.
A strong-armed former third-round pick out of Alabama, Croyle lasted just five seasons in the league due largely to poor accuracy and decision making. He was also chronically injury prone and never showed the ability to consistently move an offense. At age 29, Croyle's career ends with a 0-10 record and 8:9 TD-to-INT ratio. Croyle is now pursuing his real estate license. Tue, May 22, 2012 02:56:00 PM

Profootballtalk.com's Mike Florio reported on Football Night in America that the Texans will likely sign free agent Brodie Croyle this week to be their No. 3 quarterback for the stretch run.

Florio also reported that the Texans will likely roll with rookie T.J. Yates in the starting role for the rest of the season. Croyle would add a veteran presence on the roster, and perhaps push Kellen Clemens to hold the clipboard for Yates. Florio reiterated that Brett Favre almost certainly isn't coming out of retirement. He hasn't thrown a football since November 4.

The Colts will work out free agent quarterbacks Brodie Croyle and Dan Orlovsky on Tuesday.

These two street free agents are getting a look because of Kerry Collins' likely concussion. They would not be threats to replace Curtis Painter as the likely starter going forward. Orlovsky may have a leg up, as he spent training camp with the Colts this season before being released at final cuts.

The Dolphins worked out free agent QB Brodie Croyle.

The Dolphins also worked out free agent G Reggie Wells and free agent TE Jeff Dugan. Miami currently only has Matt Moore behind Chad Henne at quarterback, so a contract could be coming Croyle's way if he looked impressive at all during his workout. A third-round pick of the Chiefs in 2006, Croyle is 181-of-319 for 1,669 yards, eight touchdowns and nine interceptions over parts of 18 games in his career. He was one of the Cardinals' final cuts earlier this month.

Cardinals waived QB Brodie Croyle, C Ben Claxton, WR Isaiah Williams, C Kris O'Dowd, FB Reagan Maui’a, OT Cliff Louis, OG Tom Pestock, RB William Powell, TE Stephen Skelton, and OT D.J. Young.

The Cardinals aren't wasting any time, paring down their roster to 53 men on the first day of cuts. Skelton, an undrafted rookie from Fordham, was John's little brother. Powell was terrible in the preseason in his battle for the No. 3 running back job. Williams should find a home on the practice squad.

Cardinals agreed to terms with QB Brodie Croyle, formerly of the Chiefs.

Croyle attracted little interest on the open market after imploding in a spot start last December. He's now 0-10 in his five-year NFL career as a starter. Croyle is only being brought in for practice depth with John Skelton (ankle) and Max Hall (shoulder) nursing injuries.

Free agent Brodie Croyle is not expected back with the Chiefs this season.

Coach Todd Haley is said to be high on Tyler Palko, and the team used a fifth-round pick on Ricky Stanzi. Stanzi is probably the No. 2 quarterback of the future. Beat writer Bob Gretz suggests signing a veteran free agent with experience starting in the league to battle Stanzi and Palko. As for Croyle, his market will be minimal with an 0-10 career record as a starter.

The Kansas City Star's Adam Teicher thinks the Chiefs may be ready to move on from free agent QB Brodie Croyle.

Croyle, now 28, is 0-10 lifetime as a starter, and owns a career passer rating of 67.8. Granted, when he's played it's usually been under unideal circumstances, but if he had the skills to remain a long-term NFL quarterback, he likely would have demonstrated so by now. It's less than 50-50 he'll be the Chiefs' back-up in 2011.

Brodie Croyle completed just 7-of-17 passes for 40 yards in the Week 14 loss to the Chargers.

Croyle was woefully inaccurate, but he was never given a real chance in this one. Even after the Chiefs fell into an early hole, they refused to let Croyle take any shots downfield until late in the game when they had no choice. It's clear they don't trust him, so the Chiefs are desperately hoping Matt Cassel is ready next week. Tyler Palko came on for the last series of the game, but it wasn't as much of a benching as it was throwing up the white flag.

Chiefs backup QB Brodie Croyle has been sidelined with an arm injury for the past two weeks.

Croyle just started throwing in full earlier this week and appears back to full strength. He's in no danger of losing his No. 2 gig to Tyler Palko.

Chiefs backup QB Brodie Croyle has bulked up this season in an effort to avoid injuries that have plagued him since he entered the league.

One of the most brittle QBs in the league, Croyle has yet to play more than nine games in a season. He still believes he can be a starter in the NFL, and he'll have a chance to leave Kansas City as a free agent after the season. Despite showing improvement in limited action last season, it's highly doubtful that Croyle will be given a chance to start elsewhere.

Chiefs re-signed restricted free agent QB Brodie Croyle to a one-year, $1.759 million contract.

Croyle is coming off his best season, albeit in limited action. While Matt Cassel is believed to be in a make-or-break season as the franchise quarterback, Croyle isn't a realistic alternative.
Thu, Apr 15, 2010 04:22:00 PM

The Chiefs extended a second-round restricted free agent tender to backup quarterback Brodie Croyle.

Croyle, 27, held his own during preseason and early-year spot play in place of Matt Cassel last season, perhaps earning a long-term job as Cassel's backup. Still, this tender is surprising for Croyle, who may be the NFL's most brittle passer. Teams usually want backup QBs to be dependable. Croyle likely could've been retained at the low tender as a former third-round pick.

Coach Todd Haley envisions Brodie Croyle "playing a critical role" for the Chiefs going forward.

Despite a disappointing season, Matt Cassel is locked in as the starter as well as a key to the offensive nucleus. Croyle, a restricted free agent, showed Haley enough to be considered the answer as a long-term backup to Cassel in Kansas City.

Playing in relief of an ineffective Matt Cassel, Brodie Croyle completed 6-of-14 passes for 50 yards against the Broncos in Week 13.

Croyle's most noteworthy attempt was an incomplete pass on a ridiculous fake punt from the Chiefs' own 28-yard line on the first drive of the third quarter. Todd Haley said after the game that he remains "very confident" in Cassel, so expect Croyle to head back to the bench next week.
