Once news broke of Sam Bradford’s season-ending knee injury, the Twitter-verse responded with its usual antics, which consist of blowing up in smoke with rampant speculation and endless amounts of rumors.
One Chiefs player fell victim to Twitter’s rumors on Sunday.
It’s a well known fact that backup signal callers around the league are always in high demand in the wake of an injury to a starter, and Chase Daniel simply happened to be next on the list of backups who some thought the St. Louis Rams would have interest in.
Take a look at the speculation that surrounded Daniel on Sunday, especially from Chiefs fans:
Some Rams fans weren’t necessarily against acquiring Daniel, either:
All I'm sayin is Chase Daniel wouldn't look bad in a rams uniform…. @STLouisRams

Trade for Chase Daniel so I can at least be entertained

However, The Kansas City Star’s Terez Paylor put an end to the speculation, at least for now:
Getting a lot of questions about trading Chase Daniel to STL. No inside info but I’d be surprised if that happened.
