Patrick Mahomes: Kansas City Chiefs to make quarterback most paid NFL player over four-season period

Watch Patrick Mahomes, the two-time Super Bowl champion, and the Kansas City Chiefs take on the Chicago Bears on Sunday at 9.15 p.m. on Sky Sports Action. Mahomes has agreed to a new deal worth $210.6 million (£170 million) over the next four years.

Due to a contract restructuring by the Kansas City Chiefs, Patrick Mahomes will now earn the highest salary of any NFL player for a four-season span.

Under the new agreement, Mahomes will receive $210.6 million (£170 million) in salary from 2023 to 2026, his agents disclosed to ESPN on Monday.

Equity Sports CEO Chris Cabott also said the Chiefs and Mahomes plan to revisit the agreement following the 2026 season.

Mahomes agreed to a 10-year, $450 million extension in 2020. At the time, it was the largest contract in NFL history in terms of total value.

The NFL quarterback market has since been reset, with Mahomes’ $45 million average annual salary trailing Joe Burrow ($55 million), Justin Herbert ($52.5 million), Lamar Jackson ($52 million), Jalen Hurts ($51 million), Russell Wilson ($48.5 million), Kyler Murray ($46.1 million) and Deshaun Watson ($46 million), per Spotrac.

Under the new terms, Mahomes would earn $52.65 million in each of the next four campaigns. Mahomes, who turned 28 on Sunday, won his second Super Bowl and second league MVP award last season.

Including a 1-1 start to this season, Mahomes is 65-17 as a starter in the regular season and 11-3 in the post-season. He has passed for 24,772 yards, 196 touchdowns and 51 interceptions in 82 starts since the Chiefs drafted him in the first round (10th overall) in 2017.
