Chief quarterback Patrick Mahomes signs history's most lucrative sports deal
The NFL Kansas City chiefs have signed quarterback Patrick Mahomes with a 10-year contract extension, which, according to his agent, is the most lucrative contract in the history of the game.

Mahomes, who won the NFL MVP award and led to a Super Bowl championship last season, is now on contract with the Chiefs until the NFL's 2031 season. The team announced an extension of the contract, but did not confirm the terms of the agreement.

The 10-year extension is reportedly worth $ 450 million. ESPN was the first NFL network to report on contract terms. According to the expansion ESPN and NFL Network, the total potential value of Mahomes' current contract between the NFL's 2020 and 2031 seasons is $ 503 million.

In an Instagram post, Mahomes agent Chris Cabot largely avoided the historical nature of the contract. Cabot wrote, "The first trillion dollar player in sports history. The biggest contract in sports history. The first-highest paid player in the NFL," Cabot wrote a photo of Mahomes signing the contract.

This is an important time for our franchise and heads of state, "Chiefs President and CEO Clark Hunt said in a statement." Patrick has become one of the most prolific athletes in all areas of the game since joining the Chiefs only a few years ago. "

Hunt added, "He is an exceptional leader and a credit to the Kansas City community, and I am pleased that he has been prominent for many years."

Head coach Andy Reid expressed his excitement at the prospect of coaching Mahomes for the future and said in a statement: "I have had the privilege of coaching many amazing athletes and special people in my career, and Patrick has been rewarded by the players. There is no doubt on the list. The best thing is that he is still at the beginning of his career. "

Mahomes has been with the majors since 2017 when he was selected by the team as the 10th overall pick of the first round draft. The Texas native was drafted before playing at Texas Tech.
