Carson Wentz, Quarterback:
The Chiefs have secured former Los Angeles Rams quarterback Carson Wentz on a one-year contract.

Implications: Wentz fills the role of backup to Patrick Mahomes for the Chiefs. Previously occupied by Blaine Gabbert for a season and Chad Henne for multiple seasons, this position now sees Wentz stepping in, offering greater potential upside compared to his predecessors in the event of an extended absence by Mahomes. While Wentz showcased MVP-level performance during his time with the Philadelphia Eagles, that was several seasons and four teams ago.

Risk Assessment: With Wentz signed to a one-year deal, the Chiefs have the flexibility to reassess at the end of the season if the partnership doesn’t pan out. Initially seeking an experienced veteran presence in the quarterback room to support Mahomes’ development, the Chiefs may not view this as imperative given Mahomes’ current stage in his career.
