Kansas City Chiefs safety Tyrann Mathieu sent out a cryptic Twitter post that appeared to be aimed at the Chiefs. Mathieu's future in Kansas City is uncertain as there is a chance he changes teams this offseason. In his three years with the Chiefs, Mathieu has made two Pro Bowls and two All-Pro selections.
Mathieu has had success with the Chiefs as he won his first Super Bowl ring after the Chiefs beat the San Francisco 49ers in the 2019 Super Bowl. “Replacing me is easy,” Mathieu wrote. “Getting them to do the same thing I did is damn near impossible”.
Mathieu ready to explore the free-agency market
Per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, Mathieu will test the market and see which team is willing to give the most money to get him. “My understanding is he’s going to test the market,” Rapoport said Sunday on NFL Network.
“I think there is a chance he’s back in Kansas City, but they have so many priorities”. The Chiefs' 2021 season came to an end on an extremely disappointing way as they blew a 21-3 lead in the AFC Championship Game.
"The leaders on this team know this isn't our standard,'' Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes said after the loss. "We want to win the Super Bowl. Whenever you taste winning the Super Bowl, anything less than that is not success.
"It's definitely disappointing. Here, with this group of guys that we have, we expect to be in that game and win that game, and anything less than that is not success. We'll go back and look at all the things we did well, the adversity we battled through, the team we became at the end of the season and try to learn from the mistakes we made and try to be better next year." Mahomes vowed to return stronger and to lead the Chiefs to more Super Bowls in the future.
Mahomes wants to be a regular Super Bowl participant, just like seven-time Super Bowl champion Tom Brady was. "His career is one of a kind,'' Mahomes said of Brady. "That's why he's the GOAT. To win that many Super Bowls and win that many games, it's hard.
I understand that. The years that I've had, I've been close a lot. I've only been there twice, and I've only won once. I understand it takes a special player, a special group of guys, special circumstances for that to happen. "I'm just going to try to do whatever I can to get myself a chance every year to get in that game and to win it."
