NFL players react to Patrick Mahomes’ record-breaking contract from Chiefs: ‘Worth every penny’
Final Patrick Mahomes’ deal:10-year extension worth up to $503 million.It includes $477 in guarantee mechanisms and the ability for Mahomes to have outs if guarantee mechanisms aren’t exercised.Mahomes was represented on the deal by @chriscabott and @leighsteinberg.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) July 6, 2020The massive contract will keep Mahomes in Kansas City through 2031 and allow the Chiefs to build around him as he enters his prime. That may sound ridiculous considering Mahomes is already the best quarterback in the NFL, but it’s easy to forget he’s only 24 years old.To the rest of the teams in the AFC West, have fun trying to stop that guy for the next decade.Here’s how past and present NFL players reacted to the stunning deal:The Young man deserve it all. One of the best I’ve been around. One of the Greats. #15 #RunItBack— Tyrann Mathieu (@Mathieu_Era) July 6, 2020My locker is across from the highest paid player in league history.
