Rapoport went on to explain that a Mahomes extension would likely come after the NFL and the NFLPA reach an agreement on a new CBA. Many experts believe Mahomes could wind up being the 1st player to make $40 million per year as part of a long-term deal.
The 24-year-old is currently in the third year of his four-year, $16.4 million.
During the 2019 season, Mahomes appeared in 14 games and completed 65.9 percent of his passes for 4,031 to go along with 26 touchdowns and five interceptions. He also added 218 rushing yards and two touchdowns on the ground.
