Chief’s Patrick Mahomes, signs 10 year contract extension worth over $400 million.
Yep, that’s right. I didn’t hit the 0 too many times. FOUR HUNDRED AND FIFTY MILLION DOLLARS! You know at work when you’re buzzed for a little raise or even a free pen, yeah, I can’t even imagine the feeling of that amount of money.
Adam Schefter reported that the extension was the largest contract in American sports history
I mean can anyone argue that value though? When you look at what Mahomes has bought the Chiefs in his very brief stint in the league so far, I think it’s difficult to dispute.
Mahomes was drafted 10th overall in the 2017 NFL Draft. Since then he’s been to 2 Pro Bowls (He sat on the bench his first year behind Alex Smith), won League MVP, Offensive Player of the Year, Passing touchdown leader, oh and by the way, took the Chiefs to their first winning Super Bowl in 32 years and won MVP. IN HIS 2ND PLAYING YEAR!
Not bad for someone who got drafted after Mitch Trubisky…….
Not only does Mahomes win games, but he does it with a enormous amount of swag. He’s electric on the field, not to mention his no-look pass and him switching throwing arms mid-scramble. If anyone deserves this money it is Mahomes.
I only have a couple of reservations about this contract. What happens if Mahomes is a bust over the next few seasons? The fall out of that will be monumental (think Brock Osweiller) Who? Exactly. The other point is what if Mahomes were to have a career ending injury? How would that play out? Either way the Chiefs don’t give a fuck what I think and the boy got paid!
We’re massive fans of Mahomes over here at Undrafted and earlier in the year we posted a blog about our Top 10 QB’s this coming season… guess who we put at #1? Have a gander at that shizzz.
