Fresh off the team's Super Bowl win earlier this winter, life continues to be good for the Kansas City Chiefs. With the organization ready to keep fighting for more titles, Patrick Mahomes will do all he can to keep this momentum going.
However, the elephant in the room no doubt surrounds his current contract situation with the team. Sooner or later, Mahomes is going to get a deal well north of $100 million. For the Chiefs, they've got to make sure things go smoothly and they get something done as soon as possible.
Mahomes loves this team and the city. The LAST thing GM Brett Veach can afford is for the relationship between the two sides to get sour. Take a look at the Dallas Cowboys for example.
Jerry Jones has been doing a dance with Dak Prescott for months now. Prescott wants a new deal, but has seen Dallas place the franchise tag on him. While discussions have continued of late, Dallas ended up giving Amari Cooper a new five-year deal before getting things done with Prescott. You can't imagine Dak was too fired up playing the waiting game.
You think Mahomes is going to want to participate in some sort of drama-filled discussion about his new deal? He's the best quarterbacks in the game and deserves to be paid as such. With the media going crazy in Dallas over how things are being handled with Prescott, it should be a reminder for Kansas City to avoid something similar at all costs.
Mahomes is the face of the franchise and has this team ready to play for more Lombardi trophies down the line. Give him whatever he wants.
