Patrick Mahomes in huge new NFL position change with Kansas City Chiefs star not only playing QB this season

PATRICK Mahomes is in line for a surprise role against the Los Angeles Chargers this weekend – as a punter.

The Kansas City Chiefs quarterback is getting ready to stand in for regular punter Tommy Townsend, who is questionable with an injury.

Prior to last week’s Thursday Night Football matchup against the Denver Broncos, Townsend hyperextended his knee.

Mahomes last punted in a football game back in high school.

But he is the Chiefs’ backup punter this season.

At Whitehouse High in Texas, he punted 29 times for a 37.8-yard average.

“[Mahomes] is our backup punter,” Chiefs special teams coach Dave Toub said.

“He could do it. He shows me all the time he’s out there [at practice]. Boom.

“That guy, it’s unbelievable.”

Mahomes clearly takes pride in his punting abilities.

“I been trying to tell yall!!!” he said on social media.

Former NFL star JJ Watt then asked when fans can see a clip of Mahomes punting.

The quarterback responded: “Waiting for the right moment! Patience is key.”

Should be required to step up, Mahomes is unlikely to punt the ball much against the Chargers.

Townsend is averaging just three punts per game this season.

Elsewhere, Mahomes has said he’s been following Tom Brady’s attempt to purchase Las Vegas Raiders shares — and that he’s taking notes.

The Chiefs star expressed interest in becoming an NFL team owner after investing in the Alpine F1 team recently.

Mahomes said that his venture into NFL team ownership has to wait until he retires from football, though, as he can’t do it as an active player.

“Eventually, when I’m done playing,” the Chiefs star said, per ESPN.

“I think Tom [Brady] is trying to do it right now, but that’s definitely where you want to get to.
