KANSAS City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes has said he’s been following Tom Brady’s attempt to purchase Las Vegas Raiders shares — and that he’s taking notes.
The NFL star expressed interest in becoming an NFL team owner after investing in the Alpine F1 team recently.

Mahomes, 28, 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.
“I love this sport and want to give back in any way possible.
“When I’m done playing, obviously I’ll be a Chiefs fan, but at the same time I want to have that competitive edge I’ve always had my entire life.”
Mahomes added he could see himself entering an ownership group in a league other than the NFL.
The two-time MVP said he will capitalize on an opportunity if one emerges — just like he did with his foray into F1.
“I’m always looking around,” he said.
“I can’t do it in the NFL while I’m playing, so I’m always looking around at other sports.
“It’s hard to get in all sports, NBA and all that different type of stuff, but I’m always keeping my ears open.
“If they give me the opportunity, I’m going to jump at it.”
Earlier in October, Mahomes became part of a consortium that bought a 24% share of Alpine F1.
He teamed up with other sports stars in the business venture, including Trent Alexander-Arnold, Rory McIlroy, Anthony Joshua, and Chiefs teammate, Travis Kelce.
The business group, Otro Capital, also features Hollywood stars and Wrexham soccer team owners Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney.
Otro Capital paid about $200 million for the Alpine 1 shares in June.
