Matthew Paul Gutierrez (pronounced Gut-YAIR-ez) (born June 9, 1984 in Concord, California) is an American football quarterback for the Kansas City Chiefs of the National Football League.

Early years

Gutierrez played high school football for perennial powerhouse De La Salle High School in Concord, California, where he never lost a game as a Spartan.

College career

Gutierrez went on to play at the University of Michigan, where he was slated to be the starter in 2004 before he suffered a shoulder injury (a torn labrum) before the season opener during pregame warm-ups. Backup quarterback freshman Chad Henne played well during the games Gutierrez was unable to play and was thus awarded the starting job. Gutierrez then transferred to Idaho State University, where he started at quarterback in 2006.

New England Patriots

After going undrafted in the 2007 NFL Draft, Gutierrez was signed by the New England Patriots on May 8 as an undrafted free agent. Gutierrez played in his first career regular season game on September 9 against the New York Jets and completed his first regular-season pass for a 15-yard gain against the Miami Dolphins on December 23. He appeared in five games with the team as a rookie while being inactive for 11 others.

During the 2008 preseason, Gutierrez completed 29 out of 45 passes for 362 passing yards and two touchdowns with two interceptions. On August 30, Gutierrez was part of the final cuts as the Patriots cut down to the mandatory 53-man roster. He was re-signed to the team's practice squad on September 10, then promoted to the active roster on September 13 after a season-ending injury to starter Tom Brady. He was inactive for the remaining 14 games of the season.

The Patriots waived Gutierrez on August 3, 2009 after signing quarterback Andrew Walter.

Kansas City Chiefs

Gutierrez was claimed off waivers by the Kansas City Chiefs on August 5, 2009, with the team releasing quarterback Ingle Martin to make room for him on the roster.
