The news Chiefs Kingdom had been waiting for became a reality on Monday afternoon as quarterback Patrick Mahomes agreed to an extension with the Kansas City Chiefs. The reigning Super Bowl MVP who seemingly re-writes the record books on a regular basis is now officially the man under center for the foreseeable future.
Here's how social media reacted to some of the biggest news in franchise history.
