The 2018/2019 season, Patrick Mahomes broke through with thunder and break in the NFL and since then the success has only continued for the now 24-year-old quarterback.

He was named MVP of the match when he led the City Chiefs to the Super Bowl title in February and now he is richly rewarded by the club.

Signed on ten-year contract

Mahomes has signed an extremely rare ten-year contract that, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter, is expected to be worth $ 450 million, which is equivalent to SEK 4.2 billion at today's exchange rate.

In doing so, he gets the biggest contract in sports history and beats MLB star Mike Trout, who last year received a contract worth SEK 3.9 billion.

Cannot be exchanged

- He is an extraordinary leader and an ambassador for the entire Kansas City community. I am happy that he will remain in the Chiefs for many years to come, says Chief President Clark Hunt.

Since Mahomes had two years left on his current rookie contract, he will now remain in the club until at least 2031. He can also not be replaced as long as contracts expire.
