The Chiefs are a year away from even being able to break the bank for quarterback Patrick Mahomes.
But they’re getting a head start on protecting their investment.
Chiefs General Manager Brett Veach said during an interview with 810 WHB in Kansas City that after seeing the league MVP playing basketball at a local gym, he reached out to the quarterback’s agent and asked him to not do that anymore.
Mahomes was just playing a pickup game against what looks like a regular midday pickup game at a Lifetime Fitness, and video hit the internet. As Sam Mellinger of the Kansas City Star noted immediately, that’s just not a thing that is supposed to happen.
While it’s hard to wrap a 23-year-old in bubble wrap, the Chiefs have a right to want to make sure Mahomes is well enough to try to back up his incredible season.
