Patrick Mahomes, QB for the Kansas City Chiefs, breaks all records with a new contract. The 28-year-old is one of the best QBs in the NFL and has performed for the team consistently. While being the star player for the Chiefs, he is severely underpaid as compared to other QBs in the league. Recently, it was announced that the terms of his contract are being revisited and it can only mean good for the number 15 player.

Mahomes is currently eighth among league quarterbacks in average salary. He signed a 10-year contract with the Chiefs valued at over $450 million. Though it was one of the highest-paid contracts at the time, Mahomes is on the lower end of the spectrum in terms of fees compared to the rest of his athletes. But now with new revelations and the NFL deciding to revisit his contract, Mahomes will surely be leading the list of the top-paid QBs.

The Chiefs have restructured Mahomes’ contract in the best of ways. He will be receiving a total amount of $210.6 million between the span of 2023 and 2026. This will be observed as the most money offered to a player in a 4-year span. Furthermore, the company plans to revisit the terms of his contract again in 2026 when the season ends to alter the fees some more based on his credibility as a QB for the Chiefs.

Chris Cabott, CEO of Equity Sports, was the man who managed to upgrade the terms of Mahomes’ contract. He has an extremely bright season to look forward to as the Chiefs put him in the highest regard now, in context to the revolutionary contract offered. Mahomes will have to prove his value for the team and make further developments to his playmaking skills so as to not disappoint the fans in orange after the giant restructuring of his contract.

Though the Chiefs lost to the Detroit Lions in their opening game, they are more than making up for it in their recent games. This past Sunday, the Chiefs managed to upstage the Jacksonville Jaguars by a staggering score of 17-9, and with the help of Mahomes as the QB, they were able to capitalize on the 9-point lead. Mahomes has been exceptional this season but he needs to step up his game if the Chiefs want to win the Super Bowl two years in a row.
