Patrick Mahomes’ bumper 10-year contract extension has been the talk of the town lately. A thorough breakdown of the deal just goes to show how much Mahomes will make with the Chiefs if he stays with them till 2031. As per reports, the Super Bowl LIV MVP stands to earn at least $450 million in the next 10 years.

Experts compare Patrick Mahomes, Andy Reid equation to Tom Brady and Bill Belichick

The new installment of ESPN’s Get Up show, delved into Patrick Mahomes’ 10-year contract extension with Kansas City. NFL expert Jeff Darlington is optimistic that Mahomes will see out his 10-year stay in Kansas.

“He’s in a situation now in Kansas City where he has a head coach who has gotten him to this point. That head coach (Andy Reid) has said that he’s willing to coach him in his early 70s. You’ve got that element.

“You’ve got a structure in place in Kansas City that seems to be planning to build around him in the next decade. This is not like Tom Brady and Bill Belichick.

“This is much more like Sean Payton and Drew Brees. I do believe that we will see Patrick Mahomes extend the life of this contract and continue his career with the Kansas City Chiefs,” Darlington said.

No one’s a lifer anymore, NFL analyst argues against Mahomes stay

However, another analyst on the show argued otherwise. Greg McElroy suggested that no one in the past with long-term contracts in the NFL spent their career with just one team.

“I don’t think so. At this point, I’m not willing to say anyone’s a lifer anymore. But when you look at it, who thought Tom Brady would finish his career at Tampa Bay? Who thought Joe Montana would finish his career at Kansas City?

“Who thought Brett Favre, who signed a lifetime contract with Green Bay Packers, would finish his career both in Minnesota at their biggest rival and for a year with the New York Jets as well.

“So I’m just never going to assume, guys will spend their careers at only one place,” McElroy added.
