The Kansas City Chiefs are reportedly inquiring on Carson Wentz.
The Chiefs are at the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis, which will get underway on Tuesday. While they are there, the Chiefs will be trying to get all kinds of information on various players, including those who they are not likely to draft either due to slot or position.
Regardless, Kansas City is reportedly looking into quarterback Carson Wentz out of North Dakota State, who is projected by almost every draft expert to go in the first 10 picks. Should Wentz look awful during the combine or his pro day (a la Teddy Bridgewater), perhaps general manager John Dorsey would have a shot at him.
It is interesting that the entire AFC West is reportedly looking at Wentz, except for the only team that desperately needs a quarterback. The Chargers would make sense from the standpoint that Philip Rivers is getting older and perhaps having a young kid to groom isn’t the worst idea.
As for the Chiefs, this would be a stunner. Alex Smith is only going to be 32 years old come training camp and is signed for the next three seasons as reasonable cap hits. In 2018, Smith is on the books for the large number of $20,600,000, but that won’t come to pass. The Chiefs will either bring the number down with an extension or cut him.
What do you think, Addicts? Should Kansas City go for a quarterback in the first round?
