Chiefs sign Ma­homes

Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - THE SECOND PAGE -

The Kansas City Chiefs signed their first-round draft pick, quar­ter­back Pa­trick Ma­homes II of Texas Tech, on Thurs­day. Ma­homes, who got the rookie stan­dard four-year deal, is ex­pected to back up in­cum­bent Alex Smith as a rookie this sea­son. Smith is play­ing out the fi­nal year of his con­tract, and the Chiefs aren’t ex­pected to re-sign him for 2018. Kansas City traded up from the 27th pick in April’s NFL Draft to ac­quire Ma­homes with the 10th over­all se­lec­tion. It had been 34 years since the Chiefs took a quar­ter­back in the first round, when they took Todd Black­ledge in 1983.
