In case you didn’t know this already, the Kansas City Chiefs are the best team in the NFL and are primed to make a legitimate run at creating a dynasty thanks to Patrick Mahomes, Andy Reid, and the bevy of weapons on both sides of the ball.
Earlier this week, Chiefs defensive tackle Chris Jones predicted that Kansas City would build off last year’s Super Bowl-winning campaign and win five more rings over the coming years. Most would agree that five is a pretty big number given the depth of the NFL, but wide receiver Tyreek Hill elected to go even bigger with his prediction.
Hill believes the Chiefs will hoist the Lombardi a total of seven times over the upcoming years.
“Well, I’m not gonna say he’s telling a fib,” Hill said when asked about Jones’ comments during First Take on Thursday. “But Chris Jones, he’s definitely — he’s definitely a man of his word, and we’re definitely creating something special here in KC, so I don’t see why not. Why say five? Why not go seven rings? Right now we’re just chasing [Michael] Jordan, so that’s what we do. So I’m going over five, and I’m saying seven.”
“We plan to have another parade and another parade and another parade. We’re going to make sure we bring not one, not two, not three, not four, but five-plus rings to Kansas City.”
Mahomes’ massive new contract has dominated the headlines as of late, but let’s not forget that the Chiefs’ main core is signed thru the 2021 season and it’s tough to imagine them splitting up if the success continues. Of course, money and the salary cap will play a factor, but six more rings for the Chiefs over the next 8-12 years? Sure, why not.
