Chiefs news for 29 July 2020
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.
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.

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.
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.
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).
