Mahomes signs 10-year extension with Chiefs

Super Bowl MVP Patrick Mahomes has signed a blockbuster 10-year contract extension to stay with the Kansas City Chiefs through the 2031 season, the National Football League team said on Monday.

The deal was worth US$450 million with a US$140-million injury guarantee, according to ESPN, making it the biggest contract in NFL history. The Chiefs did not respond to a request for comment about the value of the deal. “With his dynamic play and infectious personality, he is one of the most recognized and beloved figures to put on the Chiefs uniform,” Chiefs Chairman and Chief Executive Clark Hunt said in a statement. “I’m delighted that he will be a member of the Chiefs for many years to come.” The 24-year-old quarterback Mahomes, who was drafted 10th overall by Kansas City in 2017, led the Chiefs to Super Bowl victory in Miami in February, ending the team’s 50-year title drought. In a video posted to his Twitter account, the two-time Pro Bowler said he was “here to stay.” “Chiefs Kingdom, you’ve been with me since the beginning. From rookie year to becoming a starter,” said Mahomes, who threw 50 touchdowns in 2018 to become the league MVP.
