Chiefs sign Quinn, Winston

Published:

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- The Kansas City Chiefs have formally announced the signing of free agent quarterback Brady Quinn and veteran right tackle Eric Winston.

Winston was in the fourth year of a $30 million, five-year deal when he was cut by the Houston Texans to save salary cap space. Winston helped Houston become the NFL's second-leading rushing team, and he will address a glaring need for the Chiefs.

Quinn will back up Matt Cassel, who is coming back from a season-ending injury to his throwing hand.

The former first-round pick of the Browns started 12 games over three seasons in Cleveland, completing 52 percent of his passes for 1,902 yards and 10 touchdowns with nine interceptions. He did not play in Denver last season.

Terms for the two deals were not disclosed Monday.
