(610 Sports) At just 41 years of age, Chiefs' GM Brett Veach is the youngest general manager in the NFL but that hasn't kept him from being successful in the position. Veach was instrumental in drafting Patrick Mahomes, Chiefs' Head Coach Andy Reid would tell you that Veach "wore him out" about the quarterback at Texas Tech. In the three years since the 2017 NFL Draft, Mahomes has been the regular-season MVP, the Super Bowl MVP, and brought Kansas City their first Super Bowl win in 50 years. 

"If there was ever a player that was truly deserving of the largest contract in U.S. sports history, it's definitely Patrick Mahomes," Veach said during a press conference on Tuesday, addressing Mahomes' 10-year extension. 

"We've come full-circle in three short years. It started back in 2017, this organization, Clark Hunt, Mark (Donovan), Andy (Reid), we had a belief and a vision that Pat was going to be the next superstar of this league and really do things that this league hasn't seen before. After the 2018 season that saw Pat throw for over 5,000 yards and 50 touchdown passes while being named league MVP, following that up with a 2019 season that saw him help us bring the first Lamar hunt trophy to Kansas City and the first Super Bowl win in 50 years and capping that off by being named Super Bowl MVP. Here we sat at the negotiating table, now it was Pat and his family putting that same trust and that same belief in our organization. A deal of this length doesn't get done unless Pat truly believes in the vision of the Hunt family, the trust he has for Coach Reid and his coaching staff and our personnel staff."

"This contract shows a total commitment and love for Kansas City. Pat wants to win, he wants to start a dynasty, he wants to do all of those things here in Kansas City."
