Report: Kansas finally reach agreement to sign most wanted free agent

Source: Chiefs agree to one-year contract with quarterback Carson Wentz.
A source verified to ESPN that free agent quarterback Carson Wentz has agreed to a one-year contract with the Kansas City Chiefs.

Wentz joined the Rams as a backup quarterback in Week 10, after spending the first half of the season without a team. He spent the 2022 season with the Washington Commanders before being released in February 2023 with two years remaining on his contract.
Wentz, 31, started the Rams’ regular-season finale against the San Francisco 49ers while quarterback Matthew was resting. He completed 17 of 24 throws for 163 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception. He also led both teams in running yards (56 yards and one touchdown on 17 touches).


Wentz was picked by the Philadelphia Eagles with the second overall pick in 2016 and spent six seasons there. He was traded to the Indianapolis Colts following the 2020 season, after losing his starting spot to Jalen Hurts. Wentz tossed 27 touchdown passes and equaled a career low of seven interceptions with the Colts, but his future with the team was called into doubt after he struggled in the team’s last two games, when it needed to win only one to enter the playoffs.

Following the 2021 season, Washington traded for Wentz, giving two third-round picks to the Colts and exchanging second-round picks. He appeared in eight games for the Commanders, throwing 11 touchdown passes and nine interceptions. He was benched in favor of Taylor Heinicke after missing time due to a fractured finger.

In eight NFL seasons, Wentz has completed 62.7% of his throws, totaling 22,292 yards, 153 touchdowns, and 67 interceptions.

Bleacher disclose was the first to disclose the transaction.
