Carson Wentz Signs With the Kansas City Chiefs

ESPN reports that Carson Wentz has officially inked a deal with the Kansas City Chiefs, marking a new chapter in his NFL journey. The move positions Wentz to potentially serve as the backup to star quarterback Patrick Mahomes, pending further developments in free agency and the upcoming draft. With this transition, Wentz is slated to supplant Blaine Gabbert as the Chiefs’ second-string quarterback, solidifying his status as a seasoned veteran in the league.

Wentz’s career trajectory has been nothing short of eventful since he was drafted in 2016. Despite his early success, including a Super Bowl victory with the Philadelphia Eagles in 2017, Wentz has since embarked on a journey across multiple teams.

Originally selected as the second overall pick by the Eagles, he quickly assumed the starting role as a rookie. However, a season-ending knee injury in his second year paved the way for Nick Foles to lead the Eagles to a championship.

Subsequently, Wentz faced a series of ups and downs, including filling in for an injured Foles in 2018 and a subsequent trade to the Indianapolis Colts in 2021. Following a stint with the Colts, he was traded to the Washington Commanders, only to be released after one season. Wentz then found himself serving as a backup for the Los Angeles Rams midway through the 2023 season.

Throughout his eight-season career, Wentz has compiled a respectable record of 47 wins, 45 losses, and one tie. He has thrown 153 touchdowns and just 67 interceptions, amassing over 22,000 passing yards.

Although he won’t be vying for a starting role in Kansas City, the opportunity to collaborate with Mahomes and head coach Andy Reid presents a promising prospect for Wentz as he navigates the next chapter of his NFL career.
