Patrick Mahomes joins Kansas City Royals ownership group | KCKingdom

After inking a decade-long contract that is worth over $500 million with the Kansas City Chiefs, Patrick Mahomes has continued to show his dedication to Kansas City by joining the Kansas City Royals’ ownership group.

This makes him the youngest owner in sports history per Ian Rapoport on Twitter. This is further proof that Mahomes cares about Kansas City and wants to be here even past his ten-year deal.

Where Patrick Mahomes stands among youngest athletes to own a team after buying stake in Kansas City Royals | CBSSports

LeBron James, Liverpool FC: The Lakers star bought a 2 percent stake in the newly crowned Premier League champions in 2011 — back when its title drought felt like a long and arduous hell the club would never escape from. Given the recent success of the club, it’s safe to say the investment he made at 26 has certainly paid off.

Chris Jones lands at No. 52 on NFL’s Top 100 player list | AA

While his first Pro Bowl came just last year, Jones has been building a reputation as one of the league’s most productive tackles well before that. In 2018 he set an NFL record for most consecutive games with at least one sack with 11, the same year he led the Chiefs with 15.5 sacks. Last year, he had 9 despite missing a couple games due to injury. Still he returned with several key plays during the team’s postseason run.

Former Chiefs QB Alex Smith placed on Washington Football Team PUP list | ChiefsWire

This is an important step because Smith will be able to do some work off on the side during training camp with the athletic training staff. Washington’s medical team will be able to monitor his progress. He’ll also be allowed in the building where he can work with Dwayne Haskins and Kyle Allen. The hope in Washington is that he can have the same type of impact on one of those players that he had on current Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes during the 2017 season.

Fantasy football backup rankings: Kareem Hunt leads the way | ESPN.com

Hunt already has stand-alone value as a borderline top-20 weekly play in PPR leagues (which makes him a bit pricey on draft day), but we know from his Kansas City days that he has the ability to handle a full workload. In this circumstance, Hunt would have little competition for touches and be a borderline top-five fantasy back (as Chubb was before Hunt returned from suspension last season).

Happy to see Morse play all 16 for the first time since 2016 while regaining the special ability to pull, climb, and fit on 2nd/3rd level targets that he showed in the past.

Buffalo's ROI on signing him was 👍 this season because of plays like this 🔥

National Talking Heads:

One more on the #Raiders from Inside Training Camp on @nflnetwork: Jon Gruden's attempt to "crush" COVID-19 included assistant Rich Bisaccia tricking the players into thinking Gruden had coronavirus. But it wasn't a mean-spirited prank. There was a serious message behind it.

The #AZCardinals are expected to sign FA S Kentrell Brice, pending physical and COVID-19 test, per source. Brice, who has played for the #Packers and #Bucs, was recently waived by the #Bears. Now he gets a 1-year deal in AZ.

first: so happy for AS11 that he gets to mentor Haskins and the other QB’s, he’ll have a blast just doing that, and the rehab he continues … someday, even if it’s an “end of season parting gift” from the team, he WILL start again in the NFL, and nobody gonna love it more than me, just because

next: the BritChiefs in re the following

I bet PatrickMahomes is the only guy in history that could ACTUALLY build Rome in a day!

a day, huh? give him a good SIM game and he can get it done in under an hour ..

finally: DaChefs, thanks for the “daily grind” (i know, I know … if only it would brew itself) and have a “wreck”
