Mahomes ready for long career with Chiefs

Basking in the glow of a Super Bowl title, Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes said he wants the opportunity to win many more championships while wearing a Chiefs uniform.Now eligible for a contract extension after playing three seasons, Mahomes, who earned the game’s MVP honor, sounded ready to commit Monday morning.”Obviously, I want to be in Kansas City for a long time,” Mahomes said, according to ESPN. “I understand that and also I want to win a lot of football games here.”There’s no immediacy to getting a deal done. Mahomes’ current contract runs through the 2020 season, with a team option for another season beyond that.The 24-year old was 26-of-42 passing for 286 yards and two touchdowns in Super Bowl LIV while rallying the Chiefs to a 31-20 victory over the San Francisco 49ers with 21 points in the fourth quarter.The NFL’s 2018 MVP had 4,031 passing yards this season with 26 touchdowns. It was a statistical drop from 2018 when he threw for 5,097 yards and 50 TDs, but he had just five interceptions in the 2019 regular season and now has a trophy for his postseason work.”For me, it’s kind of letting that stuff handle itself,” Mahomes said to ESPN about a contract extension. “I’m in a great organization. I have a great team … working for me.”
