It’s been just three years since he signed a 10-year, $450 million contract extension, but Patrick Mahomes could receive a new deal from the Kansas City Chiefs before the start of the 2023 season.
Per Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio, the two-time NFL MVP is expected to sign a contract that will make him the highest-paid player in league history.
With Jalen Hurts and Lamar Jackson moving past the $50M per year on long-term deals, Mahomes’ $45 million deal has fallen to seventh at the position.
When Mahomes signed his first extension in July 2020, it included additional guarantees that could push the total value of the deal up to $503 million. However, even though the deal was the richest in NFL history by total value, Mahomes took a team-friendly contract that gave the Chiefs flexibility to add talent.
