The Kansas City Chiefs have reportedly found their new backup quarterback for Patrick Mahomes and he is also a Super Bowl champion.
After Chad Henne retired following the Chiefs’ Super Bowl victory in February, Kansas City was in the market for a new veteran signal-caller. They filled that spot with veteran Blaine Gabbert.
The 33-year-old Gabbert has spent the past four seasons with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
In 11 games with zero starts, he completed 22 of 35 passes for 239 yards and three touchdowns.

He made major headlines last December when he helped rescue four people while on his jet ski after a helicopter crashed into a body of water near Peter O. Knight Airport in Tampa, Florida.
Gabbert was drafted by the Jacksonville Jaguars in the first round of the 2011 NFL Draft, with the 10th overall pick. He played for the Jaguars from 2011 to 2013, and then for the San Francisco 49ers from 2014 to 2016. He has also played for the Arizona Cardinals and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
With the Tampa Bay Buccaneers victory over the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl 55, Blaine Gabbert became an NFL champion.
Gabbert’s NFL career has been somewhat underwhelming, as he has struggled with consistency and has been plagued by injuries. However, he has shown flashes of talent at times and has been a reliable backup quarterback.
Gabbert is 13-35 as a starter, with his last start coming in 2018.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
