KANSAS CITY, Mo. (WDAF) — ESPN reporter Adam Schefter tweeted on Monday afternoon that Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes agreed to a 10-year extension, keeping him in Kansas City through 2031.
Mahomes has taken the league by storm since taking the reigns from Alex Smith, leading the Chiefs to a Super Bowl LIV victory and collecting the Super Bowl MVP award in the process.
He was also named league MVP after the 2018 season after throwing 50 touchdowns and more than 5,000 yards during his first full season as a starter.
Schefter reports Mahomes 10-year extension is worth $450 million.
The Chiefs QB is already set to make $2.8 million for the upcoming 2020 season, and the Chiefs picked up their fifth-year option in April, giving Mahomes roughly $24.8 million for the 2021 season.
With the upcoming two seasons and now the 10-year extension, Mahomes will make $477.6 million over the next 12 years.
His 10-year contract will be the largest in North American sports history, topping Mike Trout’s 12-year deal with the Los Angeles Angels for $426.5 million.
