The accolades and honors garnered by Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes over his NFL career have him destined for a sport in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. He is still in his twenties with more amazing moments ahead of him as the Chiefs attempt to repeat this season as Super Bowl champions.
The Chiefs arrived in Germany a few days before their matchup on Sunday against the Miami Dolphins. Mahomes spoke with a large media contingent during his press conference to discuss the possibility of him participating in the new flag football event during the 2028 Summer Olympic Games in Los Angeles.
“Oh, I definitely want to, but I’ve seen some of those guys play the flag football, and they’re a little faster than I am. And there’s not like a lot of there’s not like lineman blocking for you.” said Mahomes, “So I’ll be 31, 32 years old. So if I can still move around, then I’m gonna try to get out there and throw the football around. Maybe in LA, just don’t tell Coach (Andy) Reid or (Brett) Veach or anybody.”
Flag Football is set to debut in the Summer Olympics in 2028, creating another exciting avenue for football players. Mahomes playing in the Olympics is unlikely, but it would be interesting to see his highlight plays on the world’s biggest sports stage.
