The Kansas City Chiefs, however, don't want him utilizing his skills on the hardwood.

After a video of Patrick Mahomes playing basketball went viral, Chiefs fans were awed - and concerned - that he was playing a little too competitively.

A couple of days ago, a video surfaced online showing Patrick Mahomes giving his best Kyrie Irving moves on the basketball court, complete with a spin move and layup.

Mahomes was a star in basketball as well as baseball and football in high school, in Whitehouse, Texas.

Chiefs general manager Brett Veach told Kansas City radio station WHB that he immediately called Mahomes' agent to make it clear that Mahomes could no longer participate in competitive basketball games.

Added Veach: "We were able to nip that in the bud and we feel good about the plan of no basketball with Pat moving forward".

"You're breaking a lot of ankles out there", Veach said.

While it's certainly starting to seem like there's nothing Mahomes can't do, it's also abundantly clear there are things the Chiefs don't want the man likely to sign the league's first $200 million contract to do.

However, NFL players have done less in the offseason and sustained serious injuries, something Veach was quick to address with Mahomes' agent.
