Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes agreed to a record setting 10-year extension that could payout an insane $503 million.
The #Chiefs and QB Patrick Mahomes have agreed to terms on a 10-year extension worth $503 million, sources tell me and @TomPelissero. He gets $477M in guarantee mechanisms and gives the ability for Mahomes to have outs if the guarantee mechanisms aren’t exercised. No trade clause

Mahomes' new deal was celebrated by all of Kansas City, including head coach Andy Reid. On Tuesday he pulled out his best Tommy Bahama shirt to celebrate his quarterback's insane payday.

Andy Reid is the best.
He deserved the Super Bowl victory last season and he deserves several more years with Mahomes quarterbacking his team before he calls it a career.
He's a football guy through and through. You can't help but root for him.
