Patrick Mahomes’ New Contract Will Pay Him Kardashian-Level Money

I’ve some sports players make some serious money; David Beckham made $20 million a year playing for Real Madrid and the LA Galaxy gave him $50 million to come to the US for a year and get absolutely no one any more interested in soccer than they were previously. But Patrick Mahomes just signed a new contract that’s paying him an insane $500 million over ten years.

If you’re keeping score at home, that is the biggest contract in the history of professional sports.

This new contract is an extension of his existing contract, so he’s signed to the Chiefs through 2031 when he’ll be like 35, so this basically guarantees he’ll retire as a Chief. It’s also got a $145 million injury guarantee and a no-trade clause. It’s a long-term contract that keeps Mahomes in Kansas City for ostensibly his entire career, but he clearly didn’t get the short end of the stick.

Considering Mahomes lead the NFL in basically everything for the past two years and is about to settle the argument about if Tom Brady is the greatest quarterback of all time, I think he’s worth it.

Mahomes is so good that it’s fun to watch him play even if you’re not a fan of the Chiefs. He’s such a good player that no one has even brought up that the Chiefs are really going to have to change that name soon. But once they do they’re going to sell so many jerseys that contract may just pay for itself.

They sounded really high on him in their statement on the signing, too.

“Since he joined the Chiefs just a few years ago, Patrick has developed into one of the most prolific athletes in all of sports,” Chiefs chairman Clark Hunt said in a statement about the quarterback who led the team to its first championship in 50 years.

“With his dynamic play and infectious personality, he is one of the most recognized and beloved figures to put on the Chiefs uniform. He’s an extraordinary leader and a credit to the Kansas City community, and I’m delighted that he will be a member of the Chiefs for many years to come.”

And he did all that with fully inflated footballs.
