Kansas City Chiefs superstar quarterback Patrick Mahomes is coming off his second Super Bowl title, further adding to a legacy that may have him in the conversation as one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time when it is all said and done for him.
With Mahomes continuing to make his case as one of the greatest leaders under center in NFL history, the Chiefs superstar has let it be known which quarterbacks are in his top five all-time.
According to Complex via Dov Kleiman, Mahomes’ first choice comes as no surprise, with the two-time Super Bowl champion picking the recently retired Tom Brady, followed by fellow two-time champion Peyton Manning.

2) Peyton Manning

Mahomes put together an interesting list, perhaps the most interesting part being that he put current New York Jets superstar Aaron Rodgers ahead of San Francisco 49ers legend Joe Montana, who many considered the greatest of all time before Brady won seven titles.
Although Rodgers should be in consideration on this list, it’s a bit of a head-scratcher that he’d be ahead of Montana and John Elway, for that matter.
Despite the order, the choices Mahomes made are pretty on par with what most people would go with for the top-five greatest quarterbacks of all time.
As always, however, these lists are forever evolving and will likely change once Mahomes’ career comes to an end, with perhaps some of his peers making the list, like Joe Burrow, Justin Herbert, Josh Allen, or Lamar Jackson getting in the mix.NEXT: Andy Reid Blasts News NFL Kickoff Rule Change
