Chiefs Sign Carson Wentz, Re-Sign Clyde Edwards Helaire

Posted Apr 03, 2024 1:20 PM

It was reported by ESPN's Adam Schefter on Tuesday that the Kansas City Chiefs had agreed to a one-year deal with veteran quarterback Carson Wentz.

Wentz will replace former backup Blaine Gabbert, who is now an unrestricted free agent, and comes to Kansas City after spending the last two seasons as a backup with the Colts, Commanders, and Rams.

A Super Bowl winner with the Philadelphia Eagles, Wentz has completed 62.7% of his career passes for 22,292 yards, 153 touchdowns, and 67 interceptions.

This news broke alongside a Tuesday report from NFL insider Ian Rappaport that the Chiefs have agreed to a one-year deal to keep former first-round pick Clyde Edwards-Helaire in Kansas City.

Edwards-Helaire will return to the backfield alongside Isaiah Pacheco and could receive even more aid as Kansas City welcomed former Raven and current free-agent J.K. Dobbins in for a visit on Tuesday.
