Patrick Mahomes recently appeared on the ‘New Heights’ live podcast in front of an audience in Kansas City.

The best tight end in the NFL

After Henne’s remark, the Kelce brothers burst into laughter. Henne clearly had no idea who Kelce was at that time. Now that they have worked together for years, Henne’s opinion has changed.
