KANSAS City chiefs star Patrick Mahomes has put the team in an excellent position to defend their Super Bowl crown thanks to a “masterstroke” in his contract.
The Chiefs won their second title in four years and are well on their way to becoming a dynasty. And their handling of Mahomes’ mega $450million contract has left them with plenty of wriggle room. According to Field Yates from ESPN, the team converted $12million of roster bonus for 2023 into a signing bonus.
That gives them an extra $9.6million of cap space to spend on the rest of the team. And fans think the latest move is a “masterstroke” that allows them to “go shopping” in free agency. One said: “Mahomes gonna win at least 2 more Super Bowls.”
And another commented: “All the crying because it’s the Chiefs are doing it. Other teams can do it and its fine.” Wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins has been linked with a move to Arrowhead Stadium. One fan speculated on Twitter: “They loading up for Hopkins.”
And another wondered: “Hopkins trade incoming?” Mahomes won his second title after a third Super Bowl appearance in four seasons. He was also named NFL MVP in 2022 and led his side all the way to the championship game in Arizona. The Chiefs beat the Philadelphia Eagles 38-35 after a thrilling comeback at State Farm Stadium in February.
