Good morning, Gang Green Nation! I hope you’re all having a great start to the day. As we all know by now Kansas City Chiefs’ QB Pat Mahomes was given a monstrous 10-year 450M contract extension the other day. A lot of people have tried speculating what a contract extension would mean for players such as Jamal Adams or Sam Darnold because of this development. Let me be the first to tell you that neither of those two will warrant a contract to that extent. This isn’t pessimism, but just facts based on what we know already. If people are comparing Mahomes’ gigantic contract in any way to a Strong Safety’s potential extension, they need a reality check. Adams is a great SS, but he’s not the best ever, and it’s debatable if he’s even the best in the league right now. He hasn’t come close to bringing a ring to the Jets, and it’s also debatable as to how much better he makes the Jets’ defense. As for Darnold, he has potential to reach the status of a great QB. But nothing he has shown thus far compares to what Mahomes has done in the league so far. So let’s all pump the brakes on comparing these two to Mahomes. They aren’t comparable at all. So with that, here are your links to the team today.
