The Chiefs have Patrick Mahomes as their starter now and for many years, but that didn’t stop one undrafted quarterback prospect from joining them.
SMU quarterback Shane Buechele agreed to terms with the Chiefs after going undrafted. Buechele will receive a $15,000 signing bonus plus a $160,000 base guarantee as a priority free agent, Tom Pelissero of NFL Media reports.
Buechele began his college career at the University of Texas before losing his job to Sam Ehlinger, who went to the Colts as the 218th overall choice Saturday.
Buechele passed for 11,660 yards with 87 touchdowns and 32 interceptions in his five college seasons.
Buechele’s father, Steve, had a long career in Major League Baseball and now works in the front office of the Texas Rangers.
