Meet the wonder kid set to dethrone Chiefs Patrick Mahomes



Louis Rees-Zammit is set to sign for the Kansas City Chiefs after having quit rugby union to join the NFL’s International Player Pathway programme; the move, set to be confirmed on Friday, will see the 23-year-old link up with Patrick Mahomes at the back-to-back Super Bowl champions.

Rees-Zammit shocked the rugby world when he announced at the beginning of the year he was stepping away from the sport to pursue a career in American Football.

The 23-year-old met with several NFL teams after completing a 10-week training camp as part of the league’s International Player Pathway programme.

The move will see Rees-Zammit link up with the NFL’s premier quarterback Patrick Mahomes, who has been the Super Bown MVP for the last two seasons.

There was also understood to have been interest in signing Rees-Zammit from the New York Jets, Cleveland Browns and Denver Broncos.

NFL off-season workouts begin in April, with rookie training camps starting the following month. Full training camp begins in July before teams would usually confirm their final 53-player rosters by the end of August, with the new season beginning on September 5.
