Breaking News: Kansas City Chiefs Sign Patrick Mahomes to Contract Extension

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Kansas City Chiefs and quarterback Patrick Mahomes have agreed to terms on a 10-year contract extension.

The details have yet to surface, but -as Schefter mentioned- Mahomes’s deal will now keep him in Kansas City until 2031. In addition, the deal will most likely become the richest contract in the history of the NFL.

With the Chiefs repeatedly banging the table about the fact that they wanted to get a contract with Mahomes done sooner rather than later, this should shock nobody. What should also shock nobody is that the QB’s deal will be absolutely absurd.

Mahomes, 24, is entering his fourth year in the league and already has MVP and Super Bowl MVP awards. And based on his performance thus far, there is little doubt in my mind that he will add to that collection.

There is inherent risk in signing any player to a contract of that length, but Mahomes appears to be a generational talent. I mean, he pretty much won the MVP in what was essentially his rookie year. It really can’t get better than that: or can it? Mahomes will most definitely try to show the world that it can.
