Patrick Lavon Mahomes II[5] (/məˈhmz/;[6] born September 17, 1995) is an American football quarterback for the Kansas City Chiefs of the National Football League (NFL). Since becoming the Chiefs' starting quarterback in 2018, Mahomes has led the team to four Super Bowl appearances and is one of five quarterbacks to win three or more Super Bowls.[7] Mahomes' career accolades through seven seasons in the NFL have earned him widespread praise from sports journalists, and he is considered to be one of the greatest quarterbacks in NFL history.[8][9][10]

Mahomes played college football and baseball at Texas Tech University. Following his sophomore year, he quit baseball to focus solely on football. In his junior year, he led all NCAA Division I FBS players in multiple categories including passing yards (5,052) and total touchdowns (53). He was selected 10th overall by the Kansas City Chiefs in the 2017 NFL draft. Mahomes spent his rookie season as the backup to Alex Smith. He was named the starter in 2018 after the Chiefs traded Smith to the Washington Redskins. That season, Mahomes threw for 5,097 yards, 50 touchdowns, and 12 interceptions. He became the only quarterback in history to throw for more than 5,000 yards in a single season in both college and in the NFL. He joined Peyton Manning as the only players in NFL history to throw for 5,000 yards and 50 passing touchdowns in the same season.[11] For his performance in his first season as starter, he was named to the Pro Bowl, named first-team All-Pro, and won the NFL Offensive Player of the Year and NFL Most Valuable Player awards. Mahomes is one of four black quarterbacks to win the AP MVP award.[a][12]

In the 2019 season, Mahomes led the Chiefs to Super Bowl LIV, their first Super Bowl appearance in 50 years, where they defeated the San Francisco 49ers.[13] Mahomes was awarded the Super Bowl MVP for his performance, the second black quarterback and youngest overall to do so.[b][14] He is also the third African-American quarterback to win a Super Bowl.[c] In 2020, Mahomes signed a 10-year contract extension worth $477 million with another $26 million in potential bonuses, for a total of $503 million, making it the fourth-largest known contract in sporting history.[16][17] The year after signing his contract, he led the Chiefs to their second consecutive Super Bowl appearance, but they lost to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Super Bowl LV. In the 2022 season, Mahomes won his second career NFL MVP and his second Super Bowl MVP in Super Bowl LVII over the Philadelphia Eagles, becoming the first player to win NFL MVP and Super Bowl MVP in the same year since Kurt Warner in 1999, and joined Tom Brady and Joe Montana as the only quarterbacks to win multiple regular season and Super Bowl MVPs.[18][19] In the 2023 season, he advanced to Super Bowl LVIII, his fourth Super Bowl appearance in five seasons, and there he defeated the 49ers in a rematch of Super Bowl LIV.

Early life

Mahomes was born on September 17, 1995, in Tyler, Texas. His father is Pat Mahomes, a former Major League Baseball (MLB) pitcher,[20] and his mother is Randi Martin.[21] Mahomes has a younger brother, Jackson, who is a social media influencer.[22][23][24] Mahomes' parents divorced in 2006.[21] His half-brother through his father, Graham Walker, plays football at Brown.[25] He is also the godson of former MLB pitcher LaTroy Hawkins, who was his father's teammate on the Minnesota Twins.[26]

Mahomes is biracial.[27] His father is black[28] and his mother is white.[27]

Mahomes attended Whitehouse High School in Whitehouse, Texas.[29] He played football, baseball, and basketball.[30] Mahomes believes that training in pitching and playing basketball improved his quarterback skills.[31] In football, he had 4,619 passing yards, 50 passing touchdowns, 948 rushing yards, and 15 rushing touchdowns as a senior in high school. In baseball, he threw a no-hitter with 16 strikeouts in a game his senior year.[32] He was named the Maxpreps Male Athlete of the Year for 2013–2014.[33]

Mahomes was rated by Rivals.com as a three-star football recruit and was ranked as the 12th best dual-threat quarterback in his class. He received offers from Texas Tech, Rice, and Houston.[34] He committed to Texas Tech University.[35] Mahomes was also a top prospect for the 2014 Major League Baseball draft, but was not expected to be selected high due to his commitment to Texas Tech.[36][37][38] He was selected by the Detroit Tigers in the 37th round of the 2014 MLB Draft, but did not sign a contract.[39]

Against Baylor, he threw for a Big 12 freshman record 598 yards with six touchdowns and one interception.[44] For the season, he passed for 1,547 yards, 16 touchdowns, and four interceptions.[45]

Mahomes split time with the Texas Tech baseball team, where he was a relief pitcher.[46]

Mahomes helped lead the Red Raiders to a 7–6 season with numerous productive outings throughout the season.[47] He recorded ten games going over 350 passing yards, including four games going over 400. He passed for at least three touchdowns in eight of the games, including a five-touchdown performance against Iowa State on October 10.[48] Overall, in the 2015 season, he led the Big 12 Conference with 364 pass completions on 573 attempts for 4,653 yards, 36 touchdowns, and 15 interceptions.[49][50]

Mahomes broke the NCAA FBS records for single-game total offense with 819 yards. He tied the NCAA record for single game passing yards with 734. He fell one short of the record for most attempts at 88. Overall, the game set NCAA records for most combined yards of total offense with 1,708 combined passing yards, and total offense by two players (the other was Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield).[54] The 125 combined points are the second most all time involving ranked teams.[54] Following the Oklahoma game, the Red Raiders defeated TCU before dropping three consecutive games to finish outside bowl eligibility with a 5–7 record. In his final game with Texas Tech, Mahomes finished with 586 passing yards and six touchdowns in a 54–35 victory over Baylor.[55]

Mahomes finished the season leading the country in yards per game (421), passing yards (5,052), total offense (5,312), points responsible for (318), and total touchdowns (53).[56] For his performance, he was awarded the Sammy Baugh Trophy, given annually to the nation's top college passer, joining head coach Kliff Kingsbury, Graham Harrell, and B. J. Symons as other Red Raiders to have won the award.[57] He was named an Academic All-America second team by the College Sports Information Directors of America.[58]

The contract extends through the 2031 season.[16] The contract is currently the second–largest contract in American professional sports history, surpassing Mike Trout's 12-year, $426.5 million contract with the Los Angeles Angels.[118] Mahomes became the first professional athlete to have a half-billion dollar contract.[119] Soccer players Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo and baseball player Shohei Ohtani have since surpassed the contract amount.[120][121]

In the Chiefs' week 2 win over the Chargers, Mahomes achieved his fourth fourth-quarter comeback. The Chiefs trailed 17–9 entering the fourth quarter before winning in overtime 23–20. The comeback was the NFL record sixth time he overcame a 10+ point deficit to win.[122] In a week 3 win over the Baltimore Ravens, he threw for 385 passing yards, passing for four touchdowns and rushing for one.

He was diagnosed with a concussion, and as per NFL rules he was unable to return.[135] The Chiefs would win the game 22–17 with backup quarterback Chad Henne. Later that week, Mahomes announced in a press conference that he had cleared concussion protocol, saying, "Everything has been good. I went through everything; three or four different doctors have said everything is looking good.'"[136]

In the AFC Championship in a highly anticipated matchup against the Bills and their dual-threat quarterback Josh Allen, Mahomes threw for 325 yards and three touchdowns,[137] while leading the Chiefs to a 38–24 victory and their second consecutive Super Bowl appearance.

In Super Bowl LV against the Buccaneers, Mahomes threw for 270 yards and two interceptions in the game as the Chiefs lost 31–9. It was his first double-digit loss in the NFL, and also the first time since he became the Chiefs starting quarterback that the offense did not score any touchdowns.[140] The Buccaneers defense used two deep safeties to neutralize Mahomes's wide receiver targets.[141] The Chiefs' injury-ravaged offensive line was no match for the Buccaneers' pass rush defense, as Mahomes was pressured on a Super Bowl record 29 of 56 dropbacks while also being sacked three times and hit twice.[142][143] Despite the pressure, Mahomes still managed to throw several long accurate passes that were dropped by their intended targets resulting in incompletions: one fourth-quarter highlight showed Mahomes throwing a sidearm pass, despite being tripped by Buccaneers defensive end William Gholston, that ultimately hit the facemask of receiver Darrel Williams and was dropped.[144]

Three days after the Super Bowl, Mahomes underwent surgery to repair a turf toe injury he suffered in the divisional round game against the Browns.[145] He was named as the top-ranked player in the NFL by his peers on the NFL Top 100 Players of 2021.[146]

However, Mahomes stayed in the game and led Kansas City to a touchdown on their first three drives of the second half, leading the Chiefs to a 38–35 win over the Eagles.[185] He was awarded his second career Super Bowl MVP for his efforts. Mahomes also finished the season as the Most Valuable Player, and was the league leader in both passing yards and passing touchdowns, becoming the first player in NFL history to achieve all four feats in a season.[186] Mahomes was ranked as the top player in the NFL by his peers on the NFL Top 100 Players of 2023.[187]

2023 season

On September 18, 2023, the Chiefs and Mahomes agreed to restructure his contract, giving him $210.6 million between 2023 and 2026, the most money in NFL history over a four-season span.[188] In Week 4 against the Jets, Mahomes passed for his 200th career touchdown, becoming the fastest player in NFL history to reach that milestone, having done so in just his 84th start. His 51 rushing yards in the game also allowed him to break Alex Smith's franchise record for most career rushing yards by a quarterback.[189] After defeating the Minnesota Vikings in Week 5, Mahomes became the youngest quarterback in NFL history to defeat all other 31 teams besides their own.[190] In Week 12, Mahomes was 27-of-34 for 298 yards and two touchdowns to overcome a 14-point deficit in a 31–17 win over the Las Vegas Raiders, earning AFC Offensive Player of the Week.[191]

Despite meeting these milestones, Mahomes had his worst statistical season to that point in several categories, including yards per attempt (7.0), passing yards per game (261.4), interceptions (14), and passer rating (92.6).[192][193] His receivers struggled at several points throughout the season,[194] and going into week 18, the Chiefs led the league in dropped passes. Despite his receivers leading the league in drops, Mahomes set a career high in completion percentage with 67.2%.[195] Mahomes was notably fined $50,000 for publicly criticizing the referees of the Chiefs' game against the Bills, in which they lost 20–17 after a go-ahead touchdown by receiver Kadarius Toney was negated due to Toney lining up offsides.[196] Mahomes ranted as he greeted Josh Allen after the game, saying “Fucking terrible. Fucking worst call I’ve ever fucking seen.”[197] In spite of these struggles, the Chiefs once again won the division, resulting in Mahomes and several other starters resting in the final game of the season.[198]

After victories over the Miami Dolphins and the Buffalo Bills, Mahomes helped lead the Chiefs to their sixth consecutive AFC Championship Game, which is the second most consecutive conference championship games of all time.[199] Against the Bills, Mahomes, along with tight end Travis Kelce, broke the record for most career touchdowns in the playoffs for a quarterback/receiver duo.[200] Mahomes then led the Chiefs to a win on the road against the top-seeded Baltimore Ravens to advance to Super Bowl LVIII, marking Mahomes' fourth Super Bowl appearance in five seasons.[201] The win marked Mahomes' 14th career playoff win, tying Terry Bradshaw, John Elway, and Peyton Manning for third place in quarterback playoff wins.[202] In the Super Bowl, Mahomes completed 74% (34-of-46) of his passes for 333 yards with two touchdown passes and an interception while rushing for 66 yards. He also led the Chiefs in a 13-play, 75-yard drive in overtime that resulted in a game-winning 3-yard touchdown pass to Mecole Hardman to give the Chiefs a 25–22 victory, earning Mahomes his third Super Bowl MVP.[203] Mahomes tied Joe Montana for second in Super Bowl MVPs and became just the third player to win the award in back-to-back seasons, joining Bart Starr and Terry Bradshaw.[204] With 3 Super Bowl wins in 5 years, Mahomes has led the Chiefs to dynasty status.

Playing style

A former baseball pitcher and considered by some a dual-threat quarterback and the "most talented player in the NFL" due to his elusiveness in the pocket, arm strength, running ability, and athleticism despite being a pass-first quarterback,[221][222] Mahomes is also known for attempting and completing innovative throws, including no-look passes and behind-the-back tosses.[223] FiveThirtyEight also cites his unique and "uncanny" ability to know his receivers' timing and use his athleticism to fool defenders and get his receivers open.[221] Mahomes credits his years playing baseball with developing his arm strength while throwing the football.[224] Ahead of Super Bowl LVII, which was the first Super Bowl to feature two black starting quarterbacks as the Chiefs faced off against Jalen Hurts and the Philadelphia Eagles, Mahomes acknowledged that his creative playing style was inspired by that of Negro league baseball players, especially Satchel Paige, who likewise inspired his father's baseball playing style.[223]

A number of defensive coordinators have cited Mahomes' ability to improvise as one of his key skills.[225] Since Mahomes' breakout 2018 season, NFL general managers and scouts have sought out prospects that can break out of designed plays. Number one overall draft picks Kyler Murray and Bryce Young are regarded as examples of this effect, with the two being highly touted prospects despite lacking traditional size for the position.[226]

Personal life

Patrick Mahomes with his wife Brittany at the Chiefs Super Bowl Parade at Magic Kingdom in 2020

On September 1, 2020, Mahomes proposed to Brittany Matthews, his high school sweetheart, in a suite in Arrowhead Stadium, the day Mahomes received his Super Bowl LIV championship ring.[227] Matthews had a brief professional soccer career playing for Icelandic club UMF Afturelding and then became a certified personal trainer.[228] She is also a co-owner of the Kansas City Current, a women's professional soccer team.[229] The couple married on March 12, 2022.[230] They have two children: a daughter[231] and a son.[232]

Mahomes is an evangelical Christian.[233] His mother said he found his faith when he was in middle school, where he was involved with a youth group at his church.[234] Mahomes has said, "Faith is huge for me … Before every game, I walk the field and I do a prayer at the goalpost. I just thank God for those opportunities and I thank God for letting me be on a stage where I can glorify Him. The biggest thing that I pray for is that whatever happens, win or lose, success or failure, that I'm glorifying Him."[235]

Mahomes is featured in the NFL Films and Netflix sports documentary series Quarterback, alongside other NFL quarterbacks Kirk Cousins and Marcus Mariota. All three players were filmed during the 2022 season on-and-off the field. The series premiered on Netflix on July 12, 2023. Mahomes' newly established 2PM Productions collaborated on producing the series.[236][237]

Mahomes plays golf during the offseason.[238] He has participated in several celebrity tournaments, including the American Century Championship since 2020.[239] He participated in the 2022 edition of The Match alongside Josh Allen, losing to Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers.[240] He also participated in the 2023 edition teaming up with his Chiefs teammate Travis Kelce against Golden State Warriors teammates Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson. Mahomes and Kelce won the match.[241]

Endorsements

Following his 2018 MVP season, Mahomes received multiple endorsement deals. His first contract came from Hunt's upon revealing his love for ketchup.[242] In addition, he has signed endorsement deals with Oakley,[243] Essentia Water, Hy-Vee,[244] State Farm,[245] DirectTV,[246] Adidas,[247] and Head & Shoulders.[248] He also signed an endorsement contract with Helzberg Diamonds who released a line of necklaces featuring his logo.[249] He was named the cover athlete for Madden NFL 20, becoming the first Chiefs player to be on the cover.[250] He would be named the Madden cover athlete again, along with Tom Brady, two years later for Madden NFL 22. Mahomes and Brady are the first players to be named cover athlete twice.[251] In 2020, he signed an endorsement deal with sports drink maker BioSteel sports drinks.[252] He also became an equity partner in the company.[253] On August 16, 2021, he announced he would be releasing his own signature shoe as part of his endorsement deal with Adidas. The shoe was called the Mahomes 1 Impact FLX and was released on August 23.[254]

In 2022, Mahomes appeared in a commercial for Coors Light. NFL rules prohibit players from endorsing alcohol products, so the product in the commercial was a Coors flashlight instead of beer.[255] In 2023, he appeared in commercials for cellphone provider T-Mobile.[256] Also in 2023, he signed an endorsement deal with the beverage manufacturer Prime.[257]

Philanthropy and activism

In April 2019, Mahomes announced the establishment of a nonprofit organization called the 15 and the Mahomies Foundation.[258] The nonprofit's website states that it is "dedicated to improving the lives of children".[259]

Following the murder of George Floyd by police officer Derek Chauvin, Mahomes, along with teammate Tyrann Mathieu and several other NFL players, made a video encouraging the NFL to condemn police brutality and violence against black people and to admit it was wrong to silence Colin Kaepernick and Eric Reid for their protests during the playing of the National Anthem.[260]

Mahomes and Mathieu started a voter registration project in Kansas City. The project encouraged residents to register to vote in the 2020 Presidential Election. He worked with the Chiefs to encourage players to vote. He joined LeBron James' Rock the Vote initiative to encourage people to register and vote.[261]

Mahomes was named to Time 100's list of most influential people of 2020[262] and 2023.[263]

Business investments

In 2020, Mahomes joined the Kansas City Royals ownership group as a minority stakeholder.[264] In 2021, he joined Sporting Club, the ownership group of the Major League Soccer franchise Sporting Kansas City.[265] Mahomes is a member of an ownership group of an upcoming professional pickleball team based in Miami, Florida. The ownership group also includes Naomi Osaka, Nick Kyrgios, and Rich Paul.[266] Mahomes joined the ownership group of the NWSL's Kansas City Current in 2023. His wife has been a member of the ownership group since the team was established.[267] In 2023, Mahomes (as well as Travis Kelce) became an investor in the Alpine racing team of Formula One.[268]

In 2021, Mahomes became an investor in a group to expand the Whataburger fast food restaurant franchise to Missouri and Kansas. The locations will primarily be in the Kansas City metropolitan area and the Wichita, Kansas metropolitan area, and multiple locations in between the cities.[269]
