Patrick Mahomes will earn $210.6 million between 2023 and 2026after the Kansas City Chiefs restructured his deal and in this way the quarterback will get the most money in NFL history in a four-year period.
As if that were not enough, after the 2026 season the Chiefs and Patrick Mahomes plan to review the agreement again, Equity Sports CEO Chris Cabott, who negotiated the contract on behalf of the QB, told Schefter.
In the summer of 2020 Patrick Mahomes signed an extension for 10 years and up to $450 million, making him the highest-paid player in the NFLbut three years later, that contract looks small compared to what QBs like Justin Herbert, Jalen Hurts, Lamar Jackson and Joe Burrow make.
The agreement placed the winner of two Super Bowls with the Chiefs as the second highest paid player in the league with an annual income of $52.65 million, behind Joe Burrow, Cincinnati quarterback, who on September 7 extended his contract until 2029 for $275 million, which gives him an average of $55 million a year.
Mahomes, 28, has been named NFL Most Valuable Player twice and led the Chiefs to two Super Bowl wins, where he was named Most Valuable Player both times, in his first six seasons as a professional. . The Chiefs are 1-1 this season, their seventh in the NFL.
Clark Hunt, president of the Chiefs, when asked how Kansas City determined Mahomes’ value revealed: “I don’t know if there’s really a way to quantify it financially and no matter what you earn throughout your career, one way or another, you won’t be paid enough.”.
