According to ESPN channel, Patrick Mahomes will stick with the Kansas Chiefs until 2031. The 24-year-old star will pocket at least $ 450 million and a maximum of $ 503 million from the NFL champions.
Patrick Mahomes will receive $ 140 million if the player is sacked by the Kansas Chiefs due to injury. There is also a clause between the two sides not to transfer to another team.
The new contract between the two parties will take effect from April 2021, after the current lease expires. The source of ESPN revealed, Patrick Mahomes will certainly receive $ 83 million in salary. Not to mention bonuses between 2021 and 2023.
This is considered the most “huge” contract ever in the sports industry. It surpassed baseball star Mike Trout’s record deal with the Los Angeles Angels team.
Patrick Mahomes was selected by Kansas City 10th in the 2017 NFL Draft. And he quickly became a football star as well as a world famous sports star.
In the Super Bowl LIV match (March 2020), Patrick Mahomes led the Kansas Chiefs to a 31-20 win over San Francisco 49ers. Patrick Mahomes personally received the MVP (Player of the Match) title.
However, in the American sports industry, there has never been a football player leading the income chart. The title of making the best money often falls into the big names of tennis, boxing or golf.
Even Mahomes has never been in the Top 10 of the world’s best money-making sports stars. The current salary of the 24-year-old player is 25 million USD.
What Mahomes showed in the Super Bowl match in February has confirmed the stature of the world’s number one star. Mahomes won the title of “Player of the Match” by helping Kansas City Chiefs beat San Francisco 49ers by 31-20.
