Kansas City Chiefs sign undrafted Michigan QB Patterson

Omnisport

The Kansas City Chiefs have agreed to terms with undrafted Michigan quarterback Shea Patterson. 

The deal was announced by Patterson's agent, Bryan Ehrlich. 

Patterson began his collegiate career at Mississippi before transferring to Michigan following his sophomore season in 2017 when Ole Miss were hit by NCAA sanctions.

He was able to play at Michigan immediately without needing to sit out a year, and started all 26 games for the Wolverines over the past two seasons, throwing for 5,661 yards with 45 touchdowns and 15 interceptions. 

Patterson fell off most teams' draft boards, however, due to some inconsistent play in 2019 and a pedestrian performance in this year’s Senior Bowl, passing for 130 yards with a touchdown and an interception. 

With Patrick Mahomes and backup Chad Henne set at QB for the reigning Super Bowl champions, Patterson will likely be competing with former XFL quarterback Jordan Ta'amu for the number three job.
