Mahomes and the Chiefs agreed to a ten year, $503 million dollar contract, the largest in the league's history. With the recent signing of 42-year-old Tom Brady to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, many fans were excited about the chance to lock in Mahomes for ten more seasons at the young age of 24. Chiefs General Manager Brett Veach made this statement about the stellar quarterback:
We're going to continue to do everything we can to surround him with talent, and this deal provides us more flexibility to do that. He's obviously an integral part to our success and we're thrilled he's going to be the quarterback of the Kansas City Chiefs for a long time."
Arrowhead stadium is looking forward to another decade of Mahomes!
