The Kansas City Chiefs have agreed to terms with former Ole Miss and Michigan quarterback Shea Patterson. Patterson spent the first two years of his college career at Ole Miss where he threw for 3,139 yards and 23 touchdowns in 10 games for the Rebels.
After the 2017 season, it was announced that Ole Miss would be banned from the postseason in 2018 due to NCAA violations. After the news, Patterson was granted permission to explore a transfer to another school, where he chose Michigan. At Michigan, Patterson recorded 5,661 passing yards and 45 touchdowns with the Wolverines in two seasons.
Patterson suffered a knee injury, a torn PCL, with five games left in the season and missed the remainder of the season. The Chiefs now have four quarterbacks on their roster, after releasing practice squad quarterback Kyle Shurmur earlier this offseason, who they signed as an undrafted free agent after the 2019 NFL Draft. The Chiefs signed Jordan Ta’amu before the 2020 draft and re-signed veteran backup Chad Henne this offseason.
