Kansas City Chiefs Rumors: Chiefs Favored to Land Carson Wentz

Carson Wentz Next Team Odds

The Chiefs are given +300 odds or an implied 25% chance to land Wentz. Their biggest competition is the Tampa Bay Buccaneers who are given +400 odds or an implied 20% chance to bring in Wentz to compete with Kyle Trask.

Surprisingly, the market for Wentz is expected to be incredibly strong. Nine teams are given at least a 10% chance to land former Pro-Bowler. Those range from backup positions like the Chiefs and Buffalo Bills at +700 to competitions for young quarterbacks like the Bucs, Carolina Panthers at +700, Atlanta Falcons at +700, and Houston Texans at +800. Even stopgap starting jobs like the Las Vegas Raiders at +600, Arizona Cardinals at +700, and the New York Jets at +800.

The one thing that sportsbooks don’t believe is that Wentz will be out of the NFL. He’s given +2000 odds to go to either the XFL or CFL at just a 4.8% chance.

Chiefs longtime backup quarterback Chad Henne just retired and they need a replacement and are likely looking for a high-end one. Wentz fits the bill if they’re willing to pay him. Of course, Wentz could have the chance to win a starting job on another team, which may be more appealing. But Wentz wouldn’t be the first player to attempt to rehab their value by being a backup on an elite team.
