3. Trevor Siemian

The Chiefs should be plenty familiar with Trevor Siemian, who had mixed results as the Broncos' QB in his first three years in the NFL.

He's played for the Jets, Saints and Bears since, learning different systems with the occasional spot start. In four games with New Orleans in 2021, Siemian threw for 1,154 yards and 11 TDs to three interceptions.

While I wouldn't trust Siemian as a long-term starter, he fits the mold of a veteran that could jump on field in a pinch and operate Kansas City's offense. He's got the ability to maneuver outside of the pocket and seems to be a willing backup.

He's turnover prone, notably throwing 14 interceptions to 12 TDs with the Broncos in 2017, but backup QBs are backups for a reason. Siemian would provide strong competition for Wentz and at this point, that's all you can ask for.

Whether the Chiefs go with one of these options or look elsewhere for competition, expect a corresponding move as we approach the draft and get set for a new season.
