The full details of QB Carson Wentz's one-year deal with the Chiefs have been revealed, indicating he's expected to be the No. 2 QB behind Patrick Mahomes.

His deal has a base value of $3.325 million with $2.2 million fully guaranteed. Wentz has up to $1.1 million in per-game active roster bonuses, so he just needs to be active to reach the incentives but not accumulate any specific stats.

QB Carson Wentz's Full Contract Details With Chiefs Revealed

It's a relatively large contract for a backup QB and signals how important he was to the Chiefs. I believe he can make a larger impact than we may initially think, especially if Kansas City chooses to use him in short-yardage situations.

This is a great opportunity for Wentz to rebuild his value as a quality QB in the league, though hopefully he won't be thrust into the spotlight at any point this year.

Wentz spoke to local media this week and discussed his excitement about joining the two-time defending Super Bowl champions, noting he was happy to join an offense similar to the one he ran under Doug Pederson in Philadelphia during his most successful season.

Kansas City has always prioritized veterans as backup QBs and Wentz had the most success and experience of any free agent option.

It's a mutually beneficial partnership and I'm excited to see what kind of impact Wentz can make on the team.
