ESPN poll names George Kittle as NFL’s best tight end against Travis Kelce
What the world will be like when Patrick Mahomes’ contract ends
Patrick Mahomes says his lucrative extension prevents him from several activities.
Patrick Mahomes knows how to do everything well. Now he just won’t be able to prove it anymore, at least not without angering his employer, the Kansas City Chiefs.
Mahomes signed a new lucrative contract extension earlier this week to the tune of 10 years and worth up to $ 503 million. The deal keeps Mahomes with the Chiefs throughout the 2031 season, assuming the deal stays in place during this incredible time. The contract was celebrated across Chiefs Kingdom as fans fell in love with the long-term marriage of the team’s best player and franchise. Mahomes himself said it made for a good July 4th holiday weekend.
But the contract comes with certain constraints. Specifically, Mahomes appeared on 610 Sports Radio’s The Drive with Carrington Harrison and Sean “Sports Machine” Levine to discuss his deal and said the Chiefs are limiting many physical activities to avoid injury.
“I still don’t think I’m allowed to play basketball. I’m sure baseball won’t be allowed either. I know there are many. They like everything from jet skiing to, I don’t know what all things are. I read a lot. That’s about all the physical activities you could do. I’ll probably stick with soccer and video games for now.
Mahomes is already the NFL’s top player at the age of 24, with just two full seasons as a starting quarterback under his belt. However, Mahomes was also drafted by the Detroit Tigers as a long-term selection in the 37th round of the 2014 MLB Draft. The Tigers knew it was worth trying to influence him despite Mahomes’ commitment. to be a college quarterback at Texas Tech. Ultimately, Mahomes would decline the Tigers’ invitation and move on to big things under Kliff Kingsbury’s tutelage.
In addition to baseball, Mahomes also averaged 19.9 points per game as a junior on the Whitehouse High School basketball team. Check out the highlights. What’s more, Mahomes is even slated to play golf next week in a celebrity tournament known as the American Century Championship. It’s a little sad that Mahomes has to stick to just football, but I think most of us would be willing to do the same for barely half a billion dollars.
