CINCINNATI — The Chiefs are the Bengals' biggest rival. They'll have a new quarterback in 2024.

No, Patrick Mahomes isn't going anywhere, but Kansas City is signing former No. 2 overall pick Carson Wentz to a one-year contract according to Jordan Schultz.

Wentz was the No. 2 overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft. He's bounced around the league over the past three seasons, starting games for Indianapolis and Washington, before landing in Los Angeles last season.

He made one start for the Rams and now he''ll join Andy Reid and Mahomes in Kansas City.
