NFL Rumors: Patrick Mahomes, Chiefs Agree To 10-Year Contract Extension


July 6, 2020

If anyone on this planet has actually had a good 2020 thus far, it’s been Patrick Mahomes.

He led the Kansas City Chiefs to a Super Bowl victory in February. Now it appears he’s getting paid like no one before him.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter on Monday reported that the 24-year-old and the Chiefs, who drafted him in 2017, have reached an agreement on a 10-year contract extension that would see him in Kansas City through 2031.

And while it’s hard to fathom what the world will look like in 2031, you can imagine how much money he’s going to make over a contract that long.

According to Schefter, it’s anticipated to “be the richest contract in NFL history.”

There is no indication now of what the official numbers will be, Schefter said. But the NFL insider’s sources believe it will be correlated to a percentage of the salary cap for each season, meaning he’ll make more money as the cap goes up over the years.

Mahomes is under contract through the end of 2020 with a fifth-year option in 2021. Of course, the Chiefs want to reward him for his work thus far, and it was reported to be a priority that the team lock the 2018 league MVP up long term before the start of this season.

We’ll see what the number ends up being.
