The Kansas City Chiefs remain hard at work during the 2021 free agency period, this time adding a fullback to the roster.

Burton is a true fullback, listed at 6-foot and 240 pounds. During his career, he has just 15 carries for 29 yards. He is sure-handed, though, recording 13 receptions on 17 targets for 81 yards and a touchdown.

In 2020, Burton played 29% of the special teams snaps and 19% of the offensive snaps with the Saints. If he’s more than a camp body in Kansas City, look for Burton to make a big mark on special teams. He has 13 career tackles and a fumble recovery on special teams during the course of his career. He’ll also be heavily involved in the running game, leading the way for Clyde Edwards-Helaire and company. Last season, New Orleans was a top-10 rushing unit in the league in part thanks to Burton’s contributions as a lead-blocker.

Super Bowl champion and Kansas City Chiefs star quarterback Patrick Mahomes isn’t just focused on building an empire on the gridiron, he is looking to plant his flag outside of the sport as well.

“I am trying to build an empire off the field in every way,” Mahomes, 25, told Yahoo Finance Presents. “I watch a lot of the great athletes that came before me and they found ways to build their empire and to build themselves Cheap Kansas City Chiefs Throwback Jerseys up off the field, so I am trying to do that as much as possible.”

Mahomes says sports legends such as Michael Jordan and Alex Rodriguez are models for his business building, as is well-known entrepreneur and Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban.

To be sure, Mahomes is off to an impressive start in his business empire building ambitions.

After signing a record-setting 10-year $503 million contract in 2020, Mahomes purchased a minority stake in the Kansas City Royals. He then invested an undisclosed sum for a stake in surging wearable device company Whoop. The tech unicorn has an estimated valuation of about $1.2 billion.

Those moves come in addition to Mahomes having endorsement deals with athletic-wear maker Adidas, sports recovery device seller Hyperice, NetJets rival Airshare and supplement seller BioSteel.

More recently, Mahomes has dabbled in the exploding NFT market (earlier this month he reportedly sold $3.4 million in NFTs) and Cheap Kansas City Chiefs Youth Jerseys attached his name to a SPAC that is on the prowl for tech investments.

Mahomes concedes not all his investments have been wild successes. But, he has learned a great deal from his business failures.

“The biggest thing is to do the stuff you love and you have a passion for because if you do that, you usually figure out a way to make it work. That has been big to me, not to just invest in everything but to invest in stuff that you truly believe in,” Mahomes said.

As for adding stocks to his portfolio of investments, Mahomes lets his financial advisors handle that.

“I do a little bit [of dabbling in stocks], but I usually have a financial advisor that kind of steers me in the right direction that way. I’m pretty conservative I would say so myself, but as I have learned more and more I try to do a little bit more,” added Mahomes.
