Patrick Mahomes Inks Sports Record $450M Extension With Chiefs

The Chiefs and Super Bowl MVP quarterback Patrick Mahomes have reached agreement on a 10-year contract extension that ties him to Kansas City through the 2031 season and—as everyone expected—it’s a doozie.

In fact, it’s actually the doozie-est ever as ESPN's Adam Schefter says that the deal is worth $450 million over the 10-year period—makes Mahomes the highest paid player in any sport in any country, ever.

But don’t stop there Patrick because—when you include the two years remaining on his rookie deal—it’s worth even more that Schefter’s initially reported deal worth $450 million over 10 years.

Because—according the NFL Network’s version Schefter—Ian Rapaport with $477 million guaranteed and no trade clause.

And in case you’re wondering why the 24 year-old got so much, well, all he did was lead the NFL in touchdown passes, passing yards, yards per attempt, Total QBR and wins as a starter over the past two seasons.

Oh yeah and he was also MVP of KC’s over the 49ers in this past February’s Super Bowl 54, becoming the first quarterback in NFL history to win a league MVP and Super Bowl before turning 25.

So yeah, he’s worth every penny of that 500 million—all 50 billion of ‘em.
