Chiefs sign former Super Bowl champion to serve as Patrick Mahomes backup QB

In an unexpected move, veteran quarterback Carson Wentz has signed a one-year contract with the Kansas City Chiefs

according to NFL Insider Jordan Schultz. This is Wentz's exit from the Los Angeles Rams, where he spent the most of the 2023 season.

During his time with the Rams, Wentz largely served as a backup to starting quarterback Matthew Stafford. 

Despite minimal playing time, Wentz demonstrated his ability at crucial occasions, most notably in the regular-season finale against the San Francisco 49ers. 

In that game, he replaced Stafford and played a key part in the Rams' 21-20 victory, which helped them secure the sixth seed in the NFC Playoffs.

Wentz's NFL career began in 2016 when the Philadelphia Eagles selected him second overall in the NFL draft.

He made an immediate impact, earning the starting position and leading the Eagles to victory. However, his trajectory was disrupted when a torn ACL ended his 2017 season, despite leading the Eagles to an 11-2 record.

Despite spells with the Indianapolis Colts and the Washington Commanders, Wentz has unable to regain his 2017 top form. Now with the Kansas City Chiefs, Wentz hopes to provide depth behind superstar quarterback Patrick Mahomes.
