The Chiefs have agreed to a one-year contract with Jordan Ta'amu, the highest-rated quarterback during the abbreviated XFL season. He will compete with veteran Chad Henne for a backup job next season.
The Kansas City Chiefs have signed XFL quarterback Jordan Ta'amu to a contract on Monday according to his agent, Kenny Zuckerman.
Ta'amu played for the St. Louis BattleHawks and he led the XFL in completion percentage and touchdowns. Ta'amu was the third-rated QB in the league as he completed 72% of his passes for 1,050 yards and 12 touchdowns in five games.
Ta'amu played two years at Ole Miss and threw for 5,600 yards and 30 touchdowns. He went undrafted in 2019 and spent training camp with the Houston Texans before being cut prior to the start of the regular season.
Ta'amu will compete with Chad Henne for the back-up job to Patrick Mahomes. Henne re-signed with the Chiefs last week after missing all of last season with a broken leg.
