«Take it easy big mate! @tyreewilson77 congratulations though!!» Mahomes wrote.
Mahomes made one appearance in the draft, which takes place in Kansas City.
Shortly before NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell opened the draft, Mahomes appeared onstage with teammate Travis Kelce. The couple also brought with them the Lombardi Trophy.
«Kansas City,» Mahomes said, «I think we can do a little better than that. Chiefs Kingdom, can I hear you?»
After loud cheers rang out from the crowd, Kelce grabbed the microphone and said, «Hey, we fought for our right to party!»
Mahomes and Wilson’s races did not match at Lubbock. But now that they play in the same division, they will see each other at least twice a year.
Mahomes is a two-time Super Bowl champion. Once the 2023 season begins, Mahomes will have to deal with Wilson’s passing prowess.
