The way some of the cruel fanbase has treated him I can see why he may not want to stay.

One thing that's guaranteed ,MT don't play thru anything. Mahomes just played with an injury, many players do. MT's not special, he can easily be replaced. Ever see one go back to the locker room and come back looking fine.MT hasn't come close to actually earning his contract money, there are players that can and will actually earn their money. I can't wait to see this guy go and get his replacement. What if's don't work for me. Waiting 3 years don't work for me either. He can sell popcorn in the stands for all I care. Just get rid of his no production a$$!!

Iím convinced that most of the (_________fill in the blank)comes from Mikeís contact.
He earned that contract and got hurt. Iíve NEVER seen him give nothing but 100% on the field. It has to be the money. Nothing else makes sense.
Missing all but what 3 games this season and he still was our 3rd most productive WR ( sorry Landry).

Mahomes plays QB. Totally different skill set than WR. Pat said it himself, his long run in the SB would have never been possible if he had to make cuts.
Not sure how productive MT would have been running go routes all season.
On a surgically repaired foot. He's dealing with an injury that has ended the careers of some great players.

Iím just not sure how much longer we wait, to get what weíve paid for.

Thought D'Jean Dixon was the second coming of Colston ... Will the new coaches play him more?

Perhaps the coaches actually see him practice every day and have gained a slightly less lofty impression of his abilities. It wouldn't be the first time a preseason wonderkid couldn't make the real cut.

Re: Can't Guard Mike

Just did some quick research.

DaiíJean Dixon

He's on our books as $3,334 of dead cap. About the value of a 2008 Chevy Impala.

Sorry. Maybe the XFL will look at him.

A good 2nd rounder this year would do well with what we have now.
God I wish but nobody is going to give us squat.

Colston was a rare breed. Remember, right out of rookie training camp he made an immediate impact at the position.

Dai'Jean needs a lot of work.
