Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes became an unofficial spokesperson for the Black Lives Matter movement in an interview with August’s GQ magazine, which went on sale this week.
Mr Mahomes made headlines this month after signing a 10 year contract extension that could earn him half a billion dollars over the decade, but he is more interested in equality and racial justice.
The NFL, he notes in the GQ feature, has a “particularly egregious track record” addressing racial justice and equality.
It looks like he might have celebrated his new contract with the Chiefs by treating himself to a new watch because he is strapped into a red gold OMEGA Seamaster Aqua Terra 150M Co-Axial GMT, which is selling for $36,000.
Despite several costume changes for a photo shoot accompanying the article, Mr Mahomes sticks with his Seamaster for each fresh look.
