The Kansas City Chiefs have reportedly improved their depth behind superstar QB Patrick Mahomes.

According to ESPN NFL insider Field Yates, the Chiefs have signed reserve quarterback Anthony Gordon ahead of the 2022 season.

Gordon was a standout player for the Washington State Cougars during his time in Pullman. Through his only season as a full-time starter in 2019, he logged 5,579 yards and 48 touchdowns on a 71.6 completion percentage.

Gordon went unselected in the 2020 NFL Draft, but later ended up with the Seattle Seahawks' practice squad as an undrafted free agent. In 2021, he signed a reserve/futures contract with Kansas City and then a practice squad deal with Denver.

The Chiefs' quarterback depth chart currently consists of Mahomes, Chad Henne and Shane Buechele.
