Carson Wentz agreed to a one-year contract with the Kansas City Chiefs, as reported by a person familiar with the deal to The Associated Press on Tuesday.

The individual who shared the information did so anonymously due to the contract not being announced yet.

Wentz, who was the second overall pick in 2016, is joining his fifth team in as many years to serve as backup for three-time Super Bowl MVP Patrick Mahomes. He spent last season with the Rams and led them to a win in the final game, his only start.

Blaine Gabbert was Mahomes' backup in 2023 when the Chiefs secured their second consecutive Super Bowl win and third in five years.

Wentz held a 47-45-1 record as a starter in eight seasons while playing for the Philadelphia Eagles, Indianapolis Colts, Washington Commanders, and Rams. In 2017, he placed third in AP NFL MVP voting but suffered two knee ligament tears late in the season. He then watched backup Nick Foles lead the Eagles to their only Super Bowl victory.

Wentz's most recent starting season for the Colts in 2021 saw him play 17 games and achieve a 9-8 record. He threw for 3,563 yards, 27 touchdowns, and seven interceptions.

Throughout his career, Wentz has completed 62.7% of his passes for a total of 22,292 yards, 153 TDs, and 67 interceptions. His career has been marked by injuries and inconsistency.
