Tom Brady is regarded as the greatest to have ever played the sport. And the man many believe has the best shot to usurp his crown is Mahomes. 

No quarterback in the history of the sport has made a more prolific start to their NFL career than Mahomes. In his first season as a starter, Mahomes was named NFL MVP at the age of 23.

At 24, he won his first Super Bowl and in turn, also became the youngest QB to ever be named Super Bowl MVP.

One tweet suggests that Brady and Mahomes could indeed be the cover stars. A leaked photo from April shows Brady and Mahomes in uniform getting ready for a photoshoot.
