(thehuddle) Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes had his fifth-year option picked up for the 2021 season this offseason, but team chairman Clark Hunt said Wednesday, May 20, the team will begin negotiations on a long-term contract extension this summer. 'What he has said and what we've said, both sides is, he wants to be a Kansas City Chief for life, and that's our mentality as well,' Hunt said. 'We want him to play his entire career in Kansas City, and that's what we're going to be shooting for.'

Analysis: The former MVP and reigning Super Bowl champ is widely expected to become the league's highest-paid player whenever the contract is completed. There's little reason to doubt the Chiefs will do everything required to ensure the deal gets done, and Mahomes will remain a top fantasy quarterback for the foreseeable future with a strong supporting cast in tow.
