Patrick Mahomes is ready for a throw-off with Josh Allen

Mahomes was recently the prized guest at a charity dinner in upstate New York.

Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes probably has the strongest arm in the NFL. And as we saw last year during his MVP season, he is not afraid to flash it.

Mahomes was in Rochester, New York, for the 70th annual Day of Champions Children’s Charities Dinner as its prized guest on Thursday, and it being in upstate New York, Mahomes was asked about a potential throwing competition between he and Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen, who is also known for his arm strength.

“Josh is a great dude,” Mahomes said, via Alex Brasky of The Daily News. “But no one that I’ve known has been able to throw a ball farther than me. I’ve never seen Josh throw in person but maybe next offseason we can set something up (to see who can throw further). Hopefully, I can get him to come down to Kansas City, and we can do something for charity. It’s going to take at least 85 yards to win.”

Remember, the Bills traded the No. 10-overall pick to the Chiefs so they could select Mahomes back in 2017. Had they not traded the pick, perhaps Mahomes might be in Buffalo rather than Kansas City.

“It’s crazy when you look at (it that way),” Mahomes said. “Things work out for a reason. Buffalo has a great quarterback now and I feel like I’m in a great place in Kansas City. I’m glad everything has worked out for both sides.”

The Chiefs are not scheduled to take on the Bills in 2019, though there is always the (unlikely) possibility of a playoff matchup. Regardless of that, I’d bet many Bills and Chiefs fans would pay to watch a throw-off, especially for a good cause.
