After Five Years, the Patrick Mahomes Trade Is Officially Resolved

Sometimes one athletic moment impacted history. Looking back, the 2017 Kansas City Chiefs-Buffalo Bills draft-day deal was a turning moment.

KC moved up to 10th and selected Texas Tech quarterback Patrick Mahomes after that transaction. They gave up their 27th-round pick, a 2017 third-round pick, and a 2018 first-round pick for that pick.

Obviously, the Chiefs won that exchange. Mahomes' effect since taking the starting position seems to ensure him a spot in the AFC title game, whether you like him or not. No. 15 has given a cursed team hope with three Super Bowl championships and two regular-season MVPs.

Since Wednesday, a final detail has confirmed the Bills' stunning loss.

The NFL wage cap can seem unimportant. Teams can manufacture spending room out of thin air by renegotiating large contracts like Mahomes'. The Buffalo Bills showed that financial ceiling exists.

The AFC East team made cap-motivated rooms on Wednesday to balance the accounts before the 2024 league year. Veteran Von Miller renegotiated his contract, while center Mitch Morse, safety Jordan Poyer, and cornerback Tre'Davious White were released. 

White will technically be cut after June 1 for financial reasons, but the result is the same. Other players were fired along with the major names.

In their trade with the Chiefs, the Bills received three picks. The 2017 first-rounder went to White, while the extra third-rounder went to Buffalo for Zay Jones. After trading the 2018 first-round pick with Baltimore, Tremain Edmunds joined Western New York.
