After five seasons with the New England Patriots, guard Joe Thuney is taking the next chapter of his football career to the Kansas City Chiefs.

On Thursday, Thuney agreed to a five-year $80 million contract to protect quarterback Patrick Mahomes.

A third round pick in 2016 by the Patriots out of NC State, Thuney helped the team reach three consecutive Super Bowls, winning two.
