It's hard for an NFL career to get off to a better start than Patrick Mahomes' has. He sat on the bench and learned as a backup in his first season, won the NFL MVP award in his second season and won his first Super Bowl ring and Super Bowl MVP award in his third season. And now he's received the biggest contract in NFL history.
Mahomes is not about to reset on his laurels, though. He's already set his sites on one of the most impressive records in NFL history.
Tom Brady's six Super Bowl wins are an almost unbelievable feat, especially in the NFL's free agency era, with so many rules in place to enhance parity in the league.
But if anyone is going to beat that mark, why not Mahomes, who turns just 25 years old in September? Brady also had just one Super Bowl ring when he was 25, and at that point he still wasn't really in the conversation as the league's best passer.
Mahomes is also paired up with a great coach of his own in Andy Reid, and the Chiefs are returning the entire starting lineup that won a Super Bowl alongside Mahomes in 2020.
Of course, Mahomes needs to get his second ring before we can really start talking about number six or seven. He looks to have a pretty good shot of doing that in 2021, with the Chiefs sitting as the favorites, at +650 on FanDuel Sportsbook, to win the Super Bowl this year.
