Former Ole Miss Jordan Ta’amu back with the Chiefs

Former Ole Miss Jordan Ta’amu back with the Chiefs

Former Ole Miss QB Jordan Ta’amu has rejoined the Kansas City Chiefs. On Tuesday afternoon, Jordan – who signed with the Detroit Lions practice squad on December 16 –tweeted out his news:

Not long after Ta’amu’s tweet, Kansas City QB1 Patrick Mahomes welcomed the former Rebel back to Chief’s Kingdom:

The Chiefs made the transaction official, announcing on their website that Ta’amu has been signed to the practice squad.

Jordan had been making quite a name for himself as the quarterback of the St. Louis Battlehawks, but after the XFL folded and he then spent the offseason and the first part of the year with the defending Super Bowl Champion Chiefs. He was later released and signed with the Detroit Lions’ practice squad in December.

During his time at Ole Miss, Jordan broke the all-time school record for 400-yard passing games (4), tied Chad Kelly’s Ole Miss record in 300-yard passing games (12), finished his career ranking sixth all-time with 5,600 career passing yards, and threw for 30 touchdowns, which ranks ninth in Ole Miss history.

Best of luck to Jordan!
