Last week, the Kansas City Chiefs made quarterback Patrick Mahomes the richest player in the NFL on a 10-year, $500+ million dollar contract.
On Wednesday, the Chiefs completed the quarterback room with the signing of backup quarterback Matt Moore.
The former Oregon State Beaver re-signed with the Chiefs on a one-year deal to remain in Kansas City.
The Chiefs have agreed to a one-year deal with QB Matt Moore, a source tells @YahooSports. A little additional QB depth for a year where depth will be important.— Terez A. Paylor (@TerezPaylor) July 10, 2020

The 13-year, 35-year-old stepped in for the Chiefs after Mahomes suffered a knee injury that kept him out for two weeks in 2019. The Chiefs went 1-1 with Moore as the starter. He completed 64.8 percent of his passes for 659 yards, four touchdowns and zero interceptions.
At Oregon State, Moore took the reins of the offense for two seasons from 2005-2006. In those two seasons, Moore threw for 5,733 yards, completed 440-733 (60%) passes, threw 29 touchdowns and 26 interceptions.
