St. Louis Battlehawks quarterback Jordan Ta’Amu is heading to the NFL. The XFL’s most accurate quarterback this past season agreed to a deal with the Super Bowl Champions, the Kansas City Chiefs on Monday.
Ta’amu’s agent, Kenny Zuckerman confirmed the deal of his client with Kansas City. Ta’Amu led the first year Battlehawks offense by throwing for 1,050 yards and five touchdown passes. Those numbers made him the XFL’s third-leading passer and the league’s most accurate QB with a completion percentage of 72%. Ta’Amu also was a running threat, rushing for 217 yards and a TD run. That ranked 7th in the XFL.
In Kansas City, Ta’Amu will battle Chad Henne and Kyle Shurmur to be the Chiefs backup quarterback to Patrick Mahomes.
