Patrick Mahomes becomes highest-paid player ever
KANSAS CITY, Missouri – The NFL Chiefs’ quarterback, Patrick Mahomes, inked a huge contract extension, becoming the highest-paid player in sports history.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter initially reported the deal is worth somewhere “over $400 million” and Ian Rapoport later reported it's likely worth just more than $500 million. The contract extension keeps Mahomes with the Chiefs for at least 12 years.

The #Chiefs and QB Patrick Mahomes have agreed to terms on a 10-year extension worth $503 million, sources tell me and @TomPelissero. He gets $477M in guarantee mechanisms and gives the ability for Mahomes to have outs if the guarantee mechanisms aren’t exercised. No trade clause— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) July 6, 2020
Mahomes had two years left on his current contract before agreeing to the ten-year extension.
Mahomes broke records by being the first quarterback to win a league MVP and Super Bowl before turning 25.
