Chiefs Bring Back Stull

Posted Aug 17, 2010

Pitt alum Bill Stull quarterbacked for the Chiefs on rookie mini-camp weekend

Former University of Pittsburgh QB Bill Stull was the only player to take snaps at the Chiefs rookie mini-camp way back during the first weekend of May. He worked out with the team that weekend without a contract and left the mini-camp in the same fashion.

Nearly four months later, Stull got another call from Kansas City; he’s now in camp with the Chiefs once again.

Stull signed a contract with the club on Tuesday morning, just a day after the Chiefs had only two active quarterbacks participating in practice. Matt Cassel took all first-team reps yesterday, while Tyler Palko handled both the second and third-team duties. Brodie Croyle was outdoors, but did not practice.

Stull (6-3, 215) played in 32 games (26 starts) at the University of Pittsburgh, completing 418 of 681 passes for 5,252 yards with 32 TDs and 18 INTs, good for a 136.38 passer rating. He started all 13 games as a senior, connecting on 209 of 321 throws for 2,633 yards with 21 TDs and eight INTs. Stull prepped at Seton-LaSalle High School in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

With the addition of Stull, half of the Chiefs quarterbacks are alums of Pitt U (Palko is a former Pitt QB as well).

To make room for Stull on the 80-man training camp roster, the Chiefs waived rookie DE Jeffrey Fitzgerald.

Fitzgerald appeared in 12 games at Kansas State in 2009, recording 40 tackles (24 solo), 10.0 tackles for loss, 7.0 sacks (-67.0 yards), one INT and seven passes defensed. He began his collegiate career at Virginia after attending Hermitage High School in Richmond, Virginia.
