Is Andy Reid too old-school to get Patrick Mahomes' playful antics, or is it all in good fun?

Patrick Mahomes can’t stop laughing! Football fans can finally rejoice as the teams are finally set to begin their preseason training camp. As the players are gearing up to reunite after the OTAs and mandatory minicamps, the teams are also ramping up their social media activities. On July 10, the Chiefs posted a video of the players with their “special language” on and Mahomes saw the funny side of it!

In case you’re wondering what the special language is, it’s just the way players get in the groove. In the video, stars like Patrick Mahomes, Travis Kelce, and Chris Jones were seen doing quirky things & making weird noises in the middle of practice sessions and games just to ease the pressure. However, in a portion of the clip, head coach Andy Reid could be seen walking off as Mahomes was throwing his arms around and doing some funky moves.

Though preseason presents an opportunity for the players to get back into shape, it is also a time when the athletes can pump the breaks on intensity. During the ‘New Heights’ podcast, episode 95, Travis Kelce defended Patrick Mahomes throwing a knuckleball! Though the 28-year-old is unlikely to do it during a game, Kelce has no problem with Mahomes mixing things up during preseason practices.

“You gotta keep it light-hearted, doing sh*t like this is always fun,” said the Chiefs’ tight end. According to the 34-year-old, practice sessions should feel like playing a backyard game with the boys. So the Chiefs’ faithful can expect to see a lot of such fun videos coming from the training camp this preseason. Though he is having fun, Mahomes hasn’t stopped himself from inking a few business deals.

Amid the vacation, the three-time Super Bowl MVP also announced that his brand, ‘Gladiator’ in association with Adidas, was becoming an apparel sponsor for his alma mater, Texas Tech. Mahomes also teased the release of his new Adidas Sneaker, ‘Mahomes 2’. So, it seems like being Patrick Mahomes is fun right now!
