Here were Mahomes’ top five quotes from the interview:
5. On when Mahomes found out that Alex Smith had been traded
“I got calls from my agent and my family, but I was watching my brother play basketball. He’s in the last few games of districts, so I was watching that, and they’re undefeated so I was excited about it.”
4. On what he learned during his year under Alex Smith
“Just how to be a professional. [Alex is] a great pro, someone who gameplans week in and week out. He really loves this, and I’ll forever cherish the person that he is and he’ll be a great friend no matter what happens.”
Mahomes added that he talked to Smith after the trade but would not reveal anything that was said.
“It’s just the type of guy he is—someone who really cares about the team, someone who really cares about making everyone better. You see that from him every single day in the locker room. That’s why you see so many people that care about him and genuinely like him as a person.”
2. On whether he’s ready to be the starter
“I believe I am, but you have to keep learning, keep doing those things every single day and you learn more and more no matter if you’re in your second year of your career or in the 18th year of your career, you’re going to be learning. So for me, I feel like if I get out there, I can make plays happen, and I’m just going to keep learning, keep getting better every single day.”
1. On whether he has any statistical goals for his first season as a starter
“I came from Texas Tech and had a ton of stats and didn’t win enough games. For me, it’s all about winning. I want to win the Super Bowl. I want to win the championship, and that’s it.”
