Los Angeles Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert says “it is pretty cool” that Patrick Mahomes knows who he is,
Herbert, who was taken at No. 6 in the 2020 NFL draft, impressed in his rookie season as he was named the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year.
This summer, a fan told Mahomes to watch out for Herbert and the Kansas City Chiefs quarterback replied, “I’ll see it when I believe it.”.
Mahomes’ comment drew lots of attention but the Chiefs quarterback insisted afterward he didn’t mean to disrespect Herbert.
“I think it’s pretty cool that Patrick Mahomes knows who I am,” Herbert said, per Pro Football Talk. “I’m cool with it. I have such great respect for what he’s been able to do, and I’ve watched him so much.”
