Wonder where he'll go now. At a guess I'd say the Ravens and the Bears might be willing to take a chance on. The Bears in particular need a kick up the ass on Offense and could probably be convinced he'd be worth the money.
Can't imagine the Dolphins could afford him, or indeed be that keen on him.
Just shows the different attitudes of some players. Detmer came in last season to an Offense that relied heavily on a star QB and looked pretty damn good as a starter till he got injured. Still, he happily signs a new four year deal knowing fine he's gonna be behind McNabb in the pecking order.
Kordell plays like shit, gets dropped, spits his dummy out, comes back in when Maddox gets injured, looks only marginally less cack, and then wants a move cos "I'm a starter in this league". Course you are Kordell. Maybe see you at the Superbowl. ;)

I still think Kordell has a great career left in him. I really think he got the shaft in Pittsburgh. If he hooks up with a good offensive mind I think he can be a Hall of Fame QB. Hes only 30 and hes healthy. Im pulling for him. And I can never root against the guy who threw the greatest Hail Mary pass Ive ever senn while he was in college.
And the rejoicing will stop in Pittsburgh when they realize that they are banking the future of the team on Tommy Maddox. Kordell will have the last laugh. But they do have Randle-El....
Ahem...if I may give my opinion on the thought of the Bears picking up Kordell....
This would be a trainwreck of epic proportions. Kordell in John Shoop's offense could be the worst possible idea ever. A run and gun QB of mediocre skills in a dink and dunk offense with no tackles or real RB. They might go the entire year without a point if that happens.
If Brad Johnson can start in this league...no, if Jon Kitna can start in this league, Kordell can. When they take the reins off of the O in Pittsburgh, then he could do his thing. The way the O is now, calls for a stand-in-pocket kind of guy like Tommy Maddox. I hope Kordell goes somewhere that plays the Steelers next season and he rips them a new one.

Kitna is going to have a real good year this season. With a new coach, an two good WR (Warrick and Johnson) and Dillon in the backfield, he will open up the offense and score more points. I don't know if that means wins, but at least they will be compatitive.

Stewart is the biggest chump in the league! LOL! Glad he got cut, all this "I'm a starter" crap was too much. He was a good player when they had him catch passes, throw a few, on trick plays when people didnt expect him to, and when he was scrambling. But, that crap wears thin after a while, and what do you have left? A overpaid QB with no pocket precense and questionable judgement in regards to throwing the ball away! LOSER! Have fun backing up Kitna in Cinci!
Yep...as we heard earlier up here, that ESPN article says the surgery will completely sever(!) the tendon in his throwing arm, thus eliminating the pain. (John Elway once went through the same thing, but naturally.)
