Waiving Stanzi has become an annual rite of passage. 27 next week, the 2011 fifth-rounder has never appeared in a regular-season game. He's running out of chances as a camp body. Aug 29 - 5:18 PM

Jaguars waived QB Ricky Stanzi and OL Jacques McClendon.

Stanzi will likely be re-signed next week. McClendon, 25, has been waived by the Jaguars multiple times this season.
Sat, Sep 28, 2013 04:09:00 PM

Jaguars claimed QB Ricky Stanzi off waivers from the Chiefs.

Stanzi is likely just being claimed as an extra arm for Thursday's preseason finale. He shouldn't push UDFA Matt Scott for No. 3 duties.

Chiefs waived QB Ricky Stanzi.

A fifth-round pick in 2011, Stanzi infamously couldn't even beat out Tyler Palko for playing time during his thoroughly unproductive Chiefs career. He's put nothing on tape to suggest Stanzi would draw any interest on waivers.
Sun, Aug 25, 2013 08:18:00 PM

Chiefs QB Ricky Stanzi has been working as a fourth-stringer early in camp.

He's behind Alex Smith, Chase Daniel, and undrafted rookie Tyler Bray. Once hailed as "the next Tom Brady" by some draftniks, 2011 fifth-round pick Stanzi's chances of making the 53 are considered "slim" by the Kansas City Star.
Wed, Jul 24, 2013 06:13:00 PM

Chiefs QB Ricky Stanzi "might have the early edge" over undrafted rookie Tyler Bray for No. 3 duties.

That doesn't mean Stanzi is going to win the job. Stanzi has reportedly just picked up new coach Andy Reid's offense quicker. Bray undoubtedly has better physical skills, and he has as strong an arm as anyone in the league. The Chiefs are "hopeful" Bray can beat Stanzi out for the job, and we'd bet he will.

Ricky Stanzi remained the Chiefs' No. 3 quarterback in Wednesday's practice.

It's a strong indication he won't get into Sunday's meaningless finale, and an even stronger one that he'll likely find himself on the street in 2013. If Stanzi had any sort of a future at all, he would have already seen snaps ahead of Kansas City's dreadful 1-2 duo of Matt Cassel and Brady Quinn.
Wed, Dec 26, 2012 01:28:00 PM

Ricky Stanzi's inability to get on the field this season "speaks loudly," according to the Kansas City Star.

The Chiefs are 2-13, rank dead last in points per game (13.9) and have essentially given up on Matt Cassel. They still don't want to give Stanzi, their fifth-round pick last season, a shot. He must be truly awful while operating the scout team at practices.
Wed, Dec 26, 2012 10:03:00 AM

Chiefs declared QB Ricky Stanzi, WR Steve Breaston, S Abram Elam, H-back Nate Eachus, G/C Russ Hochstein, TE Tony Moeaki, and DT Anthony Toribio inactive for Week 16 against the Colts.

Matt Cassel will back up Brady Quinn. Breaston seems likely to be cut in the offseason. Moeaki (head) will be replaced by Jake O'Connell.
Sun, Dec 23, 2012 11:35:00 AM

Chiefs head coach Romeo Crennel said "there's a possibility" second-year QB Ricky Stanzi could start in Week 16 against the Colts.

Brady Quinn suffered a rib injury in Sunday's shutout loss to the Raiders and will be evaluated this week, while Matt Cassel just isn't considered an option under center anymore. Stanzi has yet to appear in a regular season game since being a fifth-round pick in 2011. In six preseason appearances, Stanzi has completed 27-of-52 passes for 304 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions. He offers zero long-term appeal.
Mon, Dec 17, 2012 06:05:00 PM

Second-year QB Ricky Stanzi is yet to take an NFL snap.

Since the Chiefs used a fifth-round pick on Stanzi in 2011, they've used Matt Cassel, Kyle Orton, Tyler Palko and Brady Quinn at quarterback. Stanzi hasn't even sniffed the field, often not even dressing on Sundays. It's a bad sign for his long-term NFL prospects if he can't even get a look for the 1-9 Chiefs down the stretch.
Thu, Nov 22, 2012 09:55:00 AM

Coach Romeo Crennel left the door open for Ricky Stanzi to see game action if Brady Quinn (concussion) isn't cleared for Week 10.

"We will evaluate it and see which way we go," Crennel said. We are tentatively expecting to see Quinn back under center versus the Steelers, who should be picked up as a spot fantasy defense start in any league where they remain available. Crennel may have seen enough of Matt Cassel, who has more turnovers than all but one entire team in the NFL.
Fri, Nov 2, 2012 12:10:00 PM

Chiefs declared QB Ricky Stanzi, WR Devon Wylie, S Tysyn Hartman, LB Bryan Kehl, OG Bryan Mattison, DE Glenn Dorsey, and TE Steve Maneri inactive for Week 8 against the Raiders.

Matt Cassel will back up starter Brady Quinn. Dorsey is sitting out due to a knee injury. Maneri actually led Kansas City in Week 6 receiving, before the Week 7 bye. Tony Moeaki will be the Chiefs' primary tight end Sunday.
Sun, Oct 28, 2012 02:50:00 PM

Chiefs backup QB Ricky Stanzi didn't play in Friday's preseason game against the Seahawks.

Since it was the Chiefs' regular season dress rehearsal, it almost certainly means Stanzi has been beaten out by Brady Quinn to back up Matt Cassel. Stanzi attempted just 11 passes in Kansas City's first two exhibition games, completing five for 66 yards. He also lost a fumble and threw a pick. Stanzi's NFL future is dim.
Sat, Aug 25, 2012 03:03:00 PM

Chiefs 2011 fifth-round pick Ricky Stanzi has failed to separate himself from Brady Quinn early in training camp.

Maybe it'll happen in preseason games. If it doesn't, it will be a concern for Stanzi's long-term NFL outlook. Per the Kansas City Star, neither of the Chiefs' backup candidates has looked "particularly impressive" on the practice field. The Star expects Quinn to get the No. 2 quarterback job if there's a tie.
