Chiefs' Jordan Ta'amu: Links up with Chiefs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Chiefs and Ta'amu agreed to a one-year contract Monday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

This will mark Ta'amu's second cup of coffee in the NFL after spending last preseason with the Texans and the recently suspended XFL season with the St. Louis Battlehawks. With the latter, he ranked third with 1,050 passing yards while leading all quarterbacks with 217 yards on the ground (5.3 YPC). While Patrick Mahomes and Chad Henne are embedded at the top of the QB depth chart in Kansas City, Ta'amu will compete with Kyle Shurmur for the No. 3 role, which likely means a practice-squad spot in 2020.

Jordan Ta'amu: Let loose by Houston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Texans released Ta'amu on Saturday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Ta'amu was originally with the Texans on a three-year, $1.76 million deal after going undrafted out of Ole Miss in this year's draft. The 21-year-old played in 19 games over his junior and senior seasons, throwing for 5,600 yards, 30 touchdowns and 12 interceptions. He'll now have to make his regular-season NFL debut elsewhere.

Texans' Jordan Ta'amu: Enters for injured Webb
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ta'amu entered Thursday's preseason finale after Joe Webb suffered a foot injury and completed four of six passes for 21 yards with an interception in a loss to the Rams.

Webb's foot injury appears to be serious, per team officials, so Ta'amu, who was signed after No. 2 quarterback AJ McCarron suffered a thumb injury Aug. 6, may stick around the roster for a while longer. McCarron shed his cast and threw prior to Thursday's game, so he looks on track to be available as Deshaun Watson's backup in Week 1 against the Saints.

Texans' Jordan Ta'amu: Inks deal with Houston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Texans signed Ta'amu as an undrafted free agent Wednesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

With news breaking Tuesday that backup A.J. McCarron was going to sidelined for a portion of the preseason, the team decided to sign Ta'amu. Last season, the Ole Miss product passed for 3,918 yards and 19 touchdowns, while adding six scores on the ground. He'll likely battle for reps with fellow backup Joe Webb during Thursday's preseason game against Green Bay.
