The free agent wideout was seen catching passes from the Super Bowl LIV MVP and like clockwork, talk about the Chiefs possibly picking up the three-time Pro Bowler in the offseason ensued.
Now days later, the man at the helm in Kansas City has provided his take on the encounter. USA Today Cowboys reporter Jori Epstein tweeted that head coach Andy Reid was asked his thoughts on Mahomes’ form, which elicited a rather vague, but complimentary response from the veteran play-caller about their practice session.
“He was training with Dez Bryant, the other day. Looked like he was slinging it pretty good,” said Reid.
Bryant has long been a fan of Reid’s system, at one point even comparing the brewing dynasty in Kansas City to the storied one between Tom Brady and Bill Belichick of the New England Patriots.
As for whether Mahomes will need any sort of operation during the offseason, Reid explained that the 24-year-old was “good” and wouldn’t require surgery, much to the delight of Chiefs Kingdom.
Reid’s Super Bowl Outfit Has a New Home
Just three weeks after he wore it while lifting his first career Lombardi Trophy, Reid’s Super Bowl-winning outfit is officially heading to Canton. On Monday, the Pro Football Hall of Fame announced that they’re received the 61-year-old’s hat, jacket and shoes worn on the field of Hard Rock Stadium the night Kansas City won their second Super Bowl in franchise history.
The Chiefs defeated NFC champions the San Francisco 49ers 31-20 on February 2 to become this year’s title holders, quite the accomplishment for the former Philadelphia Eagles manager.
If you’re wondering whether things have changed for him since winning the big game weeks ago, Reid was able to provide some clarity. Per sports reporter Trevor Sikkema, the Los Angeles native’s food budget has substantially decreased.
For a man celebrated for living a rather minimal life, this doesn’t seem surprising at all. Reid has never been shy about his love of food in the past, even revealing that his first meal since adding Super Bowl champion to his resume would be a double cheeseburger.
“I’m gonna go get the biggest cheeseburger you’ve ever seen,” he said on NFL Network. “The biggest one, might be a double.”
Considering he’s responsible for orchestrating Kansas City’s comeback victory in each of their playoffs victory, Reid is well-deserving of however many cheeseburgers his heart desires.
