Tampa Bay Buccaneers announced the signing of Patrick Mahomes.

The signing of Patrick Mahomes as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ new quarterback was revealed.

The Kansas City Chiefs are fortunate that both players, Travis Kelce and Patrick Mahomes, get along so well on the field and are aware of their respective roles. After guiding the NFL team to three Super Bowls, Mahomes may get all the credit, but Kelce has good reason to believe that he won’t be trying out as a quarterback anytime soon.

Mahomes is regarded as one of the best passers in the game, particularly following his performance in the fourth quarter of Super Bowl LVIII and the team’s overtime victory over the San Francisco 49ers.

Mahomes goes on to explain that he would find it challenging because of Kelce’s short attention span: “I believe he has the physical aptitude to play quarterback, but as you mentioned, there are instances when you need

“If you’ve ever played ping pong with Travis, you’ll understand why he can’t play quarterback,” Mahomes continues. His colleague then says, “Unfortunately, I can’t even look coach [Andy] Reid in the eyes because of my terrible throwing arm.”

Nothing indicates that Andy Reid would even consider inserting Kelce in the event that Mahomes became incapacitated—backup quarterbacks are paid for just this reason. However, it would be interesting to know how many intervening
