If you thought that there was a chance that either of this past season’s Super Bowl quarterbacks would be headed elsewhere, think again. That was confirmed, as most would have imagined, on Friday as news came out that both the Kansas City Chiefs and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers had extended the deals on Patrick Mahomes and Tom Brady respectively.
Mahomes’ restructure gives the Chiefs more room to maneuver in order to sign additional players, allowing them to have $17 million more to spend this season. The Bucs have done similarly, using a signing bonus to pay Brady and thus saving around $19 million in the process. This will give both teams a chance to go once again, and you’d have to like their chances to make it back to yet another Super Bowl given how good they each were last year.
