Tell Chris your opinion.

The market for free agent quarterbacks got a whole lot thinner when Kansas City Chiefs backup Damon Huard agreed to a three-year deal with the team. Details of the contract were not immediately available. He was set to become an unrestricted free agent on Friday, and probably would have been the most highly coveted free agent quarterback available.

Huard was 5-3 as a starter this season in replacing starting quarterback Trent Green, who missed eight games with a severe concussion. Huard threw for 1,878 yards, 11 touchdowns, and only one interception. When Green came back, many actually thought that Huard should remain the starting quarterback, including in the playoffs.

"Damon had an excellent year in 2006 and contributed directly to getting our team to the playoffs," said Chiefs general manager Carl Peterson. "Damon is an excellent veteran player and an outstanding person. We're delighted to have him under contract."

By signing Huard, it is unclear in regards to what Green's status will be for next season. He is currently under contract through 2009, but will be 37 years old when training camp starts.
