NFL world reacts to Patrick Mahomes news
By Kevin Harrish,
Over the past several NFL seasons, Kansas City Chiefs star quarterback has emerged as almost inarguably the most valuable player in the entire NFL, even though his contract hasn’t always reflected that. And even though he’ll be getting a contract extension in a pay raise in the near future, it sounds like he’s not exactly worried about getting paid his worth.
During a press conference this week, Patrick Mahomes was asked about his current contract situation, and he made it quite clear that he’s not exactly worried about how much money he makes as long as he’s able to lead his team to Super Bowl titles.
“I worry about (my) legacy & winning rings than making money at this point. I’ll never do anything that’ll hurt this team. You want to keep the bar pushing. It’s not about being the highest-paid guy,” Mahomes said according to Taylor.
Obviously, this is a big statement that will have Kansas City Chiefs fans excited about their quarterback potentially making financial sacrifices for the betterment of the team. And the NFL world had plenty to say about Mahomes’ words on Twitter.
It will definitely be interesting to see exactly what Mahomes’ contract ultimately looks like when he does eventually sign an extension with the Chiefs.
