Patrick Mahomes reacts to Travis Kelce's extension

Patrick Mahomes and Travis Kelce will be tearing up the NFL for many years to come. 

Kelce and the Chiefs agreed to a four-year, $57.25 million deal that'll keep him in Kansas City until 2026, according to EPSN's Adam Schefter. The 30-year-old tight end still has two years remaining on his current deal. 

Mahomes, who recently signed a 10-year deal worth up to $503 million to remain with the Chiefs, shared his excitement about his teammate's new deal, and it appears he's ready to get to work. 

Mahomes and Kelce helped lead Kansas City to a Super Bowl title last season, and they're primed to do so again this year. According to BetOnline.ag, the Chiefs, alongside the Baltimore Ravens, have the best odds to win Super Bowl LV at +650. 

Kelce, who had a monster 2019 campaign, is the only tight end ever to record four straight 1,000-plus yard seasons. He's also the fastest tight end to ever reach 425 catches and 5,500 receiving yards. 

The five-time Pro Bowler joins San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle in locking up a deal worth more than $50 million. Kittle reportedly signed a five-year, $75 million extension on Thursday.
