Chiefs signing QB Patrick Mahomes to 10-year extension through 2031


Do you think Patrick Mahomes will be able to provide at his current level for the next twelve years of his contract?

ESPN senior National Football League writer Adam Schefter reports the club and the QB have reached a 10-year deal that would keep him a Chief through the 2031 season.

The former former first-round pick of the Chiefs back in 2017 was now in the final year of a four-year, $16.4 million contract before this new deal came about.

Mahomes, 24, led the team to its second Super Bowl title in February, picking up Super Bowl MVP along the way.

The Kremlin has denied the allegations that it offered bounties to militants to kill American troops. Meanwhile, the Senate intelligence committee is scheduled to receive a briefing Wednesday afternoon.

Schefter also reports that the final terms of Mahomes' deal may fluctuate based on the team's salary cap situation every year.

The Chiefs had said they meant to sign their franchise quarterback to an extension but had previously indicated it might not happen until after this season. The Chiefs traded up to select him 10th overall in the 2017 draft.

Such an extension is about as close to a forever contract as you'll get in the NFL. Meanwhile, the highest-paid player in the National Football League by average annual salary is Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, who is now playing on a four-year, $140 million contract that pays him $35 million per season.

Mahomes put up 4,031 yards to go along with 26 touchdowns and five interceptions during the 2019 season.
