The NFL’s MVP through the first 3 weeks ain’t cashing in on his early season success … ’cause Patrick Mahomes‘ agent tells TMZ Sports — NO BIG DEALS UNTIL THE OFFSEASON!!
Leigh Steinberg — the super agent who represents the Chiefs’ QB — says it’s all part of a plan to make sure Patrick keeps a level head throughout his first year as a starter.
“We’re being very, very careful to allow this season to proceed without his face on every billboard,” Leigh tells us.
“Without it creating a situation where he throws the first interception and people are saying, ‘Well, why’s he on every billboard??'”
Don’t get it twisted … Mahomes — who’s tossed 13 TDs with no picks in K.C.’s 3-0 start — has done SOME deals … BUT, the big fish are currently on ice.
“We’re keeping it low key,” Leigh says. “And, once the season is successfully over, then we’ll go into marketing in a lot of different brand categories.”
BTW … if you were wondering what Patrick’s eyeing for his first big endorsement — Steinberg tells us Mahomes’ mug could be on a cereal box near you this winter.
