KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Kansas City's $500 Million Man has done it again.

Patrick Mahomes was pictured on the cover of GQ magazine that hit stands on Tuesday.

The magazine cover dubbed the Super Bowl MVP "The New Leader of the NFL" at just 24 years old.

Mahomes shared the cover on his Twitter account, saying, "Proud of who I am. Thank you."

The Chiefs superstar was photographed wearing several 80s and 90s-era throwback styles and was sporting a gold "15" chain around his neck, which is the number on his jersey.

Mahomes is now the highest-paid NFL athlete after signing a contract for $500 million to remain with the Chiefs for an additional 10 years.

The magazine cover dropped just one day after the Madden video game franchise awarded Mahomes a spot in the "99 Club," meaning his virtual player will start the season with the highest possible rating in the game.
