The Kansas City Chiefs have re-signed general manager Brett Veach. Financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
This is the mastermind behind a lot of the team’s transactions. Veach has signed his contract extension on the same day as Andy Reid.
“Big Red,” as he is commonly known, received potentially his final extension in the NFL before he joins the elites in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. He is in his eigth season with the Chiefs.
However, this is just his fourth season as the team’s general manager. He finally gets rewarded after rewarding his players with extensions.
This summer, alone, Veach has reached agreements with Patrick Mahomes II, Travis Kelce, and Chris Jones. The extension that he signed Mahomes II to was the richest in NFL history.
There’s a good chance if Mahomes II reaches all of his incentives, he will bring home $500 million. By signing all three members of the team’s core — along with many of the team’s current roster — the Chiefs are going to be tough to beat for years to come.
They appear to be one of the favorites for the 2021 Super Bowl at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida.
He is also credited with the signings of safety Tyrann Mathieu and wide receiver Sammy Watkins. Veach also acquired defensive end Frank Clark in a trade with the Seattle Seahawks before their Super Bowl run.
Speaking of the Super Bowl, Veach is the second-youngest GM to win a Super Bowl. He was 42 when the Chiefs won the final game of the 2019 season in February.
