Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Eric Ebron had a pretty great tweet Tuesday night.

In response to Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes tweeting that he missed the old “MLB baseball days,” Ebron responded with, “All of us in the AFC won’t mind if u go back.” The NFL phenom was a great baseball prospect back in high school.

The tweet currently has 4,000 RTs and nearly 60,000 likes.

Yeah, I bet the AFC wouldn’t miss Mahomes if he decided to return to playing baseball, which is a sport his dad went pro in.

I bet the entire NFL would appreciate it if Mahomes bowed out and started taking his hacks on the diamond instead of the gridiron.

The young dual-threat quarterback absolutely terrorized the NFL the past two seasons. He didn’t just dominate. He torched teams in a fashion that is hard to comprehend at times.

The NFL usually catches up with everyone eventually. Teams find ways to stop everybody. After two seasons, nobody has found an answer for Mahomes.

Now, he has a Super Bowl ring, and it doesn’t sound like he plans on slowing down anytime soon. He’s the most dominant young star in the game.

So, yes, I think opposing players everywhere would like it if he switched sports.

However, that’s not going to happen, and he’s probably going to win several more rings with the Chiefs before it’s all said and done.
