In the days and weeks following the greatest success of Patrick Mahomes’ expert vocation, the Kansas City Chiefs quarterback permitted themself to absorb everything.
During the Chiefs’ celebratory procession in the wake of winning Super Bowl LIV, an affair that was his official crowning ordinance as the King of the City, Mahomes delighted at the time, grinning for the cameras, chugging brews with his colleagues and energetically relaxing in a manner the uber-develop 24-year-old once in a while has out in the open.
What’s more, is there any valid reason why they wouldn’t?
Given the event, a festival of the Chiefs’ first Super Bowl win in quite a while, and what Mahomes could tell it intended to Kansas Citians, Mahomes wanted to party with a great many his dearest companions.
“You see the appreciation, I think, which is the best part about it,” Mahomes disclosed to Yahoo Sports during a telephone talk with this week in the interest of Essentia Water, which as of late reported an organization with Mahomes to star in the brand’s first national crusade. “The people that have been passionate and loved the Chiefs for so long, for them to have that championship now … to finally get through [after many disappointments] and be champions now, I feel like they’re a part of us and we’re kind of able to celebrate with them. I’m excited to be in Kansas City and to keep being around people like that.”
Which should all be music to the ears of Chiefs fans, particularly with Mahomes’ next agreement approaching. The Chiefs possess his privileges for the following two years, yet since he has finished his third NFL season, they have qualified to sign an augmentation that should make them the game’s most generously compensated player.
Indeed, even with that significant payday approaching, Mahomes demands his essential objective was, is and will consistently be dominating football matches.
“In college, I didn’t win a lot of football games,” Mahomes said, “I never got to win a state championship or anything like that in high school, so to be on top, especially at the level of the NFL, and to be able to say I’m a champion is something I’ll be able to have the rest of my life. And hopefully, I’ll be able to get a few of them.”
The guarantee of that is persuading Mahomes as he explores a way ahead as the NFL’s most up to date whiz whose minor nearness or inclusion can make group wide premium. All things considered, while a portion of the storylines that have been drifting around in his circle generally — like whether they will give the Chiefs a Tom Brady-like agreement rebate or his up and coming visitor appearance on the LeBron James’ HBO appear, “The Shop” — are completely in his control, others – like whether the Chiefs will visit the White House or whether the Chiefs will engage marking Dez Bryant – are most certainly not.
Agreement exchange status
In the wake of winning Super Bowl MVP in February, Mahomes hardened his title as the most cultivated 24-year-old quarterback ever. From a budgetary point of view, the planning couldn’t have been something more.
The Chiefs need to pound out an expansion with Mahomes, and one of Mahomes’ operators, Leigh Steinberg, as of late told Matt Verderame of FanSided that while they needs to guarantee that Mahomes gets the cash they merits, they likewise needs to guarantee the Chiefs have a decent list since quarterback significance is decided by Super Bowls.
“When you look back on your career at the end of your career, you want to look back and see a lot of success, a lot of wins, a lot of Super Bowl wins hopefully — it’s something where I want to look back and see a lot of success,” Mahomes revealed to Yahoo Sports. “Obviously I want to get a contract, obviously I want to provide for my family for a long time and do everything like that.”
“But I want to make sure I do it the smart way and do it the right way, and so I don’t know exactly which way that is, yet. I know that my people and the Chiefs’ people will talk about it, and will do it at the right time and for the betterment for the team. But I’m excited to be a Kansas City Chief for a very long time, and I know that’s going to be handled the right way because of the people the Kansas City Chiefs have in their organization.”
Mahomes then consoled Chiefs fans who might be worried about his agreement circumstance.
“Just know that we’re gonna try to win every single year,” Mahomes said. “Whichever way possible, we’re going to do it and we’re gonna try to keep as many people on this team as we possibly can that won the Super Bowl this year so we can run it back again next year.”
Mahomes trusts that run incorporates guarded lineman Chris Jones and beneficiary Sammy Watkins. Jones is up for an agreement expansion this offseason, and the Chiefs can spare upward of $14 million by discharging Watkins, a Super Bowl legend. Mahomes says he’s conversed with the two players this offseason, yet not about their agreements.
“I think the biggest thing is, [you’re] talking [to] them as people and I mean, those guys love playing for the Kansas City Chiefs — y’all know that, how they talk about the Kansas City Chiefs,” Mahomes said. “They also want to be able to provide for their families, just like I do, so they’re gonna do what’s best for themselves and for their families. But I know they love playing for the Kansas City Chiefs and love winning championships as much as I do, so I’m excited for them to go out there and have success and hopefully, it’s with the Kansas City Chiefs.”
More exercises with Dez Bryant
More than about fourteen days after the Super Bowl, a video of Mahomes tossing to previous Dallas Cowboys recipient Dez Bryant — a previous hotshot who hasn’t played in the NFL in two years — turned into a web sensation.
Tossing goes to Bryant was a rush for Mahomes, a Whitehouse, Texas, local who grew up pulling for the Cowboys. The two even train at a similar spot — APEC, in Fort Worth, Texas, under coach Bobby Stroupe.
Along these lines, when Cowboys proprietor Jerry Jones noted as of late that Bryant might want to make a NFL rebound, it was by all accounts a decent bouncing off point for asking Mahomes whether they do think about making a pitch to the Chiefs for Bryant’s benefit.
“He’s obviously a very talented player, someone I watched as a little kid growing up,” Mahomes said. “But I leave stuff like that to [general manager Brett] Veach and let him make the decisions. Obviously, [Veach] lets me know some of the stuff he’s doing here and there, but I’m blessed to be with a great organization [with] a great general manager, a great head coach and great people around them.”
“I mean, they brought in the Honey Badger and Frank Clark last year, and you saw how much that helped out. So, I know they’ll make the right decisions that will put us in the best situation to win.”
Mahomes said he’ll likely toss to Bryant again sooner rather than later at APEC.
Gauging White House visit choice
The title group’s customary visit to the White House has moved fundamentally since President Donald Trump got down to business, as groups have progressively ruled against joining in. The NFL’s two latest bosses — the New England Patriots in 2019 and the Philadelphia Eagles in 2018 — didn’t visit.
Not long after the Chiefs’ Super Bowl triumph, President Trump said the group anticipates visiting. The club presently can’t seem to affirm, however Chiefs mentor Andy Reid said they intends to join in, thus did tight end Travis Kelce.
“Obviously, keeping the politics out of it — it’s an incredible opportunity that you see growing up with teams that win championships, getting invited to the White House and just being invited to the White House in general,” Mahomes said when inquired as to whether they anticipates joining in. “Yet, that is something that I will discuss with my folks and truly settle on the correct choice that speaks to us, speaks to Kansas City and the Chiefs in the correct manner. That is the choice we’ll make, ideally, as we draw nearer to OTAs and everybody’s on the same wavelength.”
Groups with returning lead trainers are permitted to start their offseason exercise programs as right on time as April 20, so maybe some lucidity will come around at that point. However, meanwhile, Mahomes has no deficiency of different things to consider. Some of them will even include another game he appreciates — golf.
Not exclusively will Mahomes visit a couple of excellent courses — Bandon Dunes in Oregon and Pebble Beach in California — in the coming months, they additionally couldn’t be more siphoned for his first excursion to The Masters.
“I wanted to go last year — my buddy had a bachelor trip but I didn’t get to go, and then Tiger [Woods] won it … he’s my favorite golfer so I was a little upset about [missing] it,” Mahomes said. “But I get to go this year, so hopefully, he can repeat or something like that so I’ll get to see him perform well.”
Be that as it may, a large portion of Mahomes’ offseason calendar will fixate on his preparation, which has just started. For Mahomes, the push for enormity never stops … and since they have been to the peak, they has no designs to back off at any point in the near future.
“Now that I’ve won the Super Bowl [and had] that taste of winning the Super Bowl and having that feeling, you kind of chase that now,” Mahomes revealed to Yahoo Sports. “I’d heard people talk about stuff like that before, of when you win championships, it’s almost like you get hungrier because you want to have that feeling again, and I think that’s true.”
“Winning that Super Bowl, being at that parade and joining it with those guys around me, you want to have that feeling again, and you understand that now it’s on to the next season, now you have to go do it all over again. It really is cool to go out there and be a part of something great, and be a part of something that takes time and takes effort and takes work every single day to succeed and be on top. You want to be on top again.”
