During the NFL's Annual League Meeting this Tuesday, Kansas City Chiefs president Mark Donovan had an interesting admission about the future of the team.

When asked about potential new stadium options, Donovan revealed that the Chiefs have considered options in the state of Kansas.

Of course, the Chiefs love playing at Arrowhead Stadium. However, the franchise has been pitched by Kansas developers regarding a bunch of options for a new venue.

This admission from Donovan has sparked mixed reactions on social media.

"Holy cow. This is something i didn't think would come up this quick," Jake Lebahn of 580 WIBW and Alpha Media Topeka said. "Arrowhead had renovations done not too long ago."

"Yeah that makes sense," Brandon Kiley of 101 ESPN St. Louis tweeted. "Royals downtown & Chiefs in Kansas."

Chiefs fans, however, aren't exactly thrilled about this news.

"I would not like to see them move to Kansas," one fan said.

"Don’t even think about it," another fan wrote.

The Chiefs have a naming rights deal with GEHA that runs through January 2031.

While that deal might not stop the Chiefs from looking at other options, Kansas City fans shouldn't have to worry about the team moving for at least the next couple of seasons.
