Former Eagles’ QB Carson Wentz agrees to a 1-year deal with the Chiefs

After waiting until ten weeks into the 2023 regular season, quarterback Carson Wentz returned to the NFL and joined the Los Angeles Rams.

Wentz didn’t have to wait long this off-season, and according to Adam Schefter, he is signing a one-year deal with the defending Super Bowl champion, Kansas City Chiefs.

Wentz, the No. 2 overall pick of the 2016 NFL draft, spent five controversial seasons in Philadelphia, even earning a contract extension before eventually being traded to Indianapolis.

After a late-season collapse with the Colts in 2021, Wentz was traded to the Commanders.

He went 2-5 in seven games as Washington’s starter in the 2022 season, throwing for 1,755 yards, 11 touchdowns, and nine picks.

Wentz spent one season in Washington before being released ahead of a $26 million cap hit for 2023.

Wentz, 31, started the Rams’ regular-season finale against the San Francisco 49ers, completing 17 of 24 passes for 163 yards, two touchdowns and an interception.

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