The Kansas City Chiefs have no questions at starting quarterback with Patrick Mahomes leading the way for the team, but the team was in need of a backup quarterback with Blaine Gabbert hitting the free agent market this offseason. But it sounds like they solved that problem by adding a veteran quarterback to the roster this week.

As first reported by NFL insider Jordan Schultz of Bleacher Report, the Kansas City Chiefs have agreed to bring in Carson Wentz as the new backup quarterback for Patrick Mahomes.

“#Chiefs signed Carson Wentz as backup 1-year deal, per sources,” Schultz said in a post on X, the social media website that was formerly known as Twitter.

Wentz was the No. 2 overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft by the Philadelphia Eagles and spent four seasons with the team, even earning Pro Bowl honors in 2017. Since then, he’s spent time with the Indianapolis Colts, the Washington Commanders, and most recently the Los Angeles Chargers.

Even though he won’t be the starter, it’s pretty significant news that he’s signing with the Chiefs, and it led to a lot of reactions on social media as a result.

We’ll have to see how Wentz impacts the Chiefs this year.
