We have change in Kansas City! (Well, sort of)

Carson Wentz — a Super Bowl-winning quarterback who was listed in free agency — has signed a one-year contract with the Kansas City Chiefs, according to ESPN.

Last season in Week 10, Wentz inked a deal with the Los Angeles Rams, joining the team as a backup quarterback. And this is after he wasn’t a part of any team in the first half of the campaign. In 2022, he was a member of the Washington Commanders, eventually being cut in Feb. 2023. At the time, he still had two years left on his contract.

In the regular-season finale for the Rams in a contest taking on the San Francisco 49ers, Wentz made the start for Matthew Stafford, who the team was resting for the postseason. The 31-year-old tallied 163 passing yards off 17-of-24 passing, also putting two touchdowns and one interception on the board. Wentz also dominated the ground-game, leading both teams with 56 rushing yards off 17 carries, and he even punched in a touchdown.

In 2016, Wentz was drafted with the No. 2 overall pick by the Philadelphia Eagles, playing a total of six campaigns before being traded in 2020 to the Indianapolis Colts. He won a Super Bowl ring with the Eagles in 2018, though Nick Foles would play in the Big Game to get a victory over the New England Patriots. Wentz was shut down for the season with a back injury.

My man already won a Super Bowl ring for doing absolutely nothing … might as well make it two.
