Back in 2020, Patrick Mahomes made history by signing a 10-year, $450 million contract extension with the Chiefs. At the time, the deal was believed to be worth an NFL-record $477 million, including $63 million fully guaranteed at signing. The deal provided a safe haven to Mahomes, ensuring an injury guarantee of $141 million.
