Patrick Mahomes wants to play his entire NFL career with the Chiefs
After quarterback Patrick Mahomes took over for Alex Smith, the Kansas City Chiefs took a drastic turn quickly becoming one of the most potent offenses in the NFL while also being a legitimate title contender in the AFC. Kansas City hasn’t missed a beat since Mahomes’ epic rise as he is now about to play in his first Super Bowl.
With Mahomes heading into Super Bowl 54 as the favorites against the San Francisco 49ers, the superstar quarterback is thinking about the future of his NFL career. He makes it clear that he wants to remain with the Chiefs for the duration, via Michael David Smith of Pro Football Talk.
“The people are what really drew me to Kansas City, and I hope I get to play there the rest of my career,” Mahomes said. “The people and how they accept you, how they care about you more as a person than as a player, how much passion they have for the Kansas City Chiefs. It’s somewhere where I want to be for the rest of my career.”
Kansas City is set up for the future. Mahomes is arguably the best quarterback in the game today and is armed with some of the best offensive weapons in Travis Kelce and Tyreek Hill. All these players are young, motivated, and have proven to being lethal for Andy Reid’s offense.
If Mahomes truly does intend to stay with the Chiefs long-term, Kansas City can cement the legacy of this franchise for years to come as they’ll likely be perennial Super Bowl title contenders in the AFC.
