The Kansas City Chiefs have been one of the most successful NFL teams in recent years, and their star quarterback Patrick Mahomes has been a driving force behind their success.
With his incredible talent and leadership on and off the field, the quarterback has quickly become an invaluable member of the Chiefs organization. And while some might think his worth could be measured in dollars and cents, Chiefs owner Clark Hunt acknowledges that Mahomes’ value is priceless.
Kansas City Chiefs owner Clark Hunt discussed the potential for a new contract extension for quarterback Patrick in light of recent deals made by other quarterbacks. Hunt acknowledged that putting a financial value on what Mahomes means to the team would be a difficult task and that he is likely to be underpaid no matter what he earns throughout his career.
“I don’t know that there’s really a way to quantify it financially,” Hunt said. “And, no matter what he makes over his career, I’m sure one way or another, he’ll be underpaid.”
What did Chiefs’ owner say about Patrick Mahomes?
Hunt noted that Mahomes structured his contract extension to give the team financial flexibility, which allowed them to add quality players each year and ultimately win the Lombardi Trophy.
Hunt also highlighted the impact of the quarterback on the rise of the Chiefs’ organization and stated that he is not only an incredible player on the field but also an outstanding representative of the franchise off the field.
Patrick was a meaningful part of the NFL Draft kickoff in Kansas City, where he walked with tight-end Travis Kelce across the main stage and displayed the Lombardi Trophy to Chiefs fans just before the event began.
As the Chiefs look toward the future, it’s clear that Mahomes will play a crucial role in the team’s continued success. And while other quarterbacks may sign bigger contracts in the coming years, it’s clear that his worth to the Chiefs cannot be measured in financial terms.
For Clark Hunt and the rest of the Chiefs organization, he is not just a talented quarterback, but a leader, a role model, and a vital part of the team’s identity. And as long as he’s leading the charge, the Chiefs will probably be a force to be reckoned with in the NFL.
