7. Carson Wentz, QB

Good impressions during OTAs aren't only important for younger players, but for veterans, too. The Chiefs signed nine-year pro Carson Wentz to serve as Patrick Mahomes' backup quarterback for the 2024 NFL season.

While Wentz likely won't see much playing time due to Mahomes' presence, the Chiefs coaching staff is thrilled to have him around. Andy Reid only had good things about the 31-year-old signal-caller at the end of May, mentioning how "crisp" and "smart" Wentz has looked and that the latter has brought nothing but good vibes to the QB room.

Even Travis Kelce couldn't help be hide his excitement. Kelce has been privileged to have spent the back half of his career with Mahomes, but that didn't stop him from mentioning how Wentz has been "absolutely killing it" and that he has what it takes to "help this team out in the long run."

There's no denying who the Chiefs' QB1 is, but having a reliable backup is never a bad thing. Whether Mahomes has to leave a game during a blowout or becomes banged up at any point next season, Kansas City fans can breathe easily knowing that the team has one of the most capable backups behind him.
