Patrick Mahomes and the NFL Kansas City Chiefs shocked the sports world by reaching a new deal worth over half a billion dollars. The 24-year-old rugby player has just signed a record-breaking $ 503 million deal with the Kansas City Chiefs.
With the new contract, the NFL champion will tie Mahomes legs for another 10 years. The old contract between Mahomes and Kansas City is still valid until the end of 2021.
According to ESPN writer Adam Schefter, this is a record contract in NFL history. Information about a record contract between Mahomes and Kansas City has been forecast since January 2019. Schefter then revealed that Mahomes is expected to receive a record contract from Kansas City.
In addition, writer Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports also mentioned this record signing in January 2020. La Canfora revealed that Kansas City is planning to give Mahomes a contract with a salary of at least $ 40 million per year. However, the figure of $ 503 million over the same period of 10 years still makes the fans feel surprised.
Mahomes is the leading rugby star in the world even at just 24 years old. The Bleacher Report even favorably calls Mahomes “Michael Jordan of rugby”.
Mahomes was selected by Kansas City at 10th place in the 2017 NFL Draft. He soon became the star of the tournament when he received the MVP (Best Player) season title and the Offensive Player of the Year Award.
Mahomes led Kansas City to the Super Bowl (comparable to the NBA Finals – the series of NBA finals) after 50 years of waiting. He also became the youngest quarterback (midfielder) of all time to receive the Super Bowl MVP (Super Bowl Player). At the age of 24, Mahomes gradually became the face of the NFL, the top rugby star in the world and has a large fan base.
