At 28, Mahomes will become the youngest QB to start four Super Bowls. In his seventh season, Mahomes hopes to play football as long as Brady.
“That’s the goal, as long as you don’t let them play, they want to play,” Mahomes said. “It takes a lot of work outside of the building. Take care of your body, eat healthy and try to get rid of that dad bod that I’ve got. But try to do everything you can to stay healthy and go. Go out there and be the best player you can be.”
“My hope is that it’s going to be year after year, but I want to play as long as they let me play. Fifteen years seems like a long time, but Brady did it and some other guys did it, so I’m going to try to see if I can do it.”
The final game of the 2023 season at Allegiant Stadium inspired Mahomes to win his third Super Bowl, but he also inspired him to not lose another.
“I lost the Super Bowl and I know how much that hurts and you want to make sure you get away from that feeling,” Mahomes said. “So I think it’s more about losing than winning that trophy and when you’re in that locker room and you feel like you’re so close and you don’t feel that — I’m more addicted to getting away from that feeling than winning that trophy.”
