Patrick Mahomes has reportedly agreed to a new, 10-year contract with the Chiefs that will keep him in Kansas City through the year 2031 where he will be making over $400 million. If you’re thinking ‘hmm, that has to be the largest contract in NFL history’ you’re not wrong, but this new deal is bigger than that.

According to Adam Schefter, Mahomes’ new contract is the largest in sports history.

The 24-year-old Mahomes just had the Monday of all Mondays.

The fact that Mahomes’ new contract numbers aren’t that crazy shows just how crazy the sports world and the NFL landscape is at the moment. You pay elite quarterbacks, period, even if that means paying them over $400 million total well into their 30’s.

It’s no surprise to see Mahomes fetch a massive deal, but seeing ’10-years worth over $400 million’ is still shocking to read.

UPDATE: The contract is worth $477 million and could be worth up to $503 million. For those keeping track at home, that’s more than a half a billion dollars.
