It’s a little surprising that Patrick Mahomes isn’t signed by the Kansas City Chiefs yet. Last year, just three first round picks remained by July 14 so that there are still six today on July 20 is a little different.
Am I worried? Not really. Maybe one percent. My guess is that once Mahomes actually arrives to training camp this weekend - report day is officially Monday - he will sign his contract. I could be wrong but that’s what I’m expecting.
The Chiefs also just changed GMs so that could be part of the delay. I’m sure Brett Veach had a lot on his plate but obviously signing your first round pick has to be near the top of the list with training camp coming up so quickly.
They can negotiate some of the language in there and the offset but the total value of the contract is pretty well slotted. I’m not too worried about it.
