Patrick Mahomes Gets Historic Payday From Chiefs With Restructured Deal

Written by Tony Ghaul

Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs agreed Monday to restructure his contract, giving the QB a $210.6 million salary between 2023-26, as per Adam Schefter of ESPN.

The deal is the most money in NFL history over a four-season span. Mahomes’ compensation for those years is now guaranteed.

The Chiefs and Mahomes plan to re-visit the agreement again after the 2026 season, as per Schefter.

Mahomes became the NFL’s highest-paid player in the summer of 2020 when he signed a 10-year extension worth $450 million. No player has since topped that contract in terms of total value.
