Shea Patterson waived by Kansas City Chiefs

The former Michigan QB will be trying to find a new NFL home.

After not being selected in the 2020 NFL Draft, former Michigan quarterback Shea Patterson found himself a home. The Kansas City Chiefs signed Patterson, and the prospects seemed positive for him to at least break camp with the team while learning a bit from Patrick Mahomes and head coach Andy Reid in the process.

Unfortunately for Patterson, he was cut on Friday afternoon by the Chiefs. While it’s never good news being cut by a team, the timing is as good as it can get because it will allow Patterson more time to get signed by another squad. The Chiefs opting to cut Patterson was in direct correlation with the team re-signing veteran journeyman QB Matt Moore.

Patterson was recently profiled on a local Texas television station working out and preparing for the NFL season, something he’s surely still doing while waiting for another opportunity.

Patterson threw for 5,661 yards, 45 touchdowns and 15 interceptions during his Michigan career along with 323 rushing yards and 7 touchdowns.
