The head of Kansas City, who wandered aimlessly for so many years without a long-term plan in football's most important position, now knows how to take care of franchise quarterbacks.

They agreed to an extension of a 10-year contract with Patrick Mahomes, with the remaining two seasons on Mahomes' current deal, keeping him with the majors through the 2031 season. 

According to ESPN's Adam Shire, Mahomes will be paid up to $ 503 million over 10 additional seasons. It includes $ 477 million in the guarantee mechanism.

The 10-year contract for the Mahomes is not the NFL's longest extension. The Eagles once gave quarterback Donovan McNab a 12-year extension. Brett Favre, Michael Vick and Drew Bleedo received a 10-year extension at various points in their careers.

But if the expansion of the Mahomes is not the longest, it may be the best. If a player was ever alive in the future, it is Mahomes. He is just 24 years old and ready for health, he can still be a major player when the new contract expires.

"This is a significant moment for our franchise and heads of state," team CEO Clark Hunt said in a statement. "When he joined the Chief Minister a few years ago, Patrick developed into one of the most prolific athletes in all sports. With his dynamic sports and infectious personality, he is the most recognized and loved person for the Chief Minister. They are the same. "

It is hard to imagine that there is at least one Super Bowl or two for the Mahomes and Chiefs. This occurred in his two seasons as his starting quarterback. Mahomes, in the first round of majors in 2017, has been one of the NFL's all-time greats, drafted immediately after playing under a fraudulent contract. The Chiefs paid him a total of $ 11.2 million over three years, including his rookie season when he was a backup to Alex Smith.

For him, the Mahomes won the NFL MVP award and the league's second-ever 50 touchdown-50-yard season in 2018 and the Chiefs' first Super Bowl championship in 50 years in 2019. In his two seasons as a starter, majors paid off Mahomes. $ 42,000 per touchdown pass, the lowest among 28 quarterbacks to throw at least 25 touchdowns in that span.

The Mahomes will no longer have that kind of deal, but is there any reason to believe that as the NFL's highest-paid player, the Chiefs still won't get much value from him? His career is already at an impasse, which would make him one of the NFL's greatest players. He is averaging 38 touchdown passes in his two seasons as a starter. Based on that average, when his new contract ends, Mahome has 532 TD throws.

Only Drew Tree, Tom Brady and Peyton Manning currently have more. Twenty-eight touchdowns pass a season, ambitious for anyone, but not disrespectful to the Mahomes until he partners with coach Andy Reid. The two have been good to each other, and Mahomes' contract extension ensures that he takes on 62-year-old Reid at the end of his coaching career.

"I have had the privilege of coaching a lot of incredible athletes and special people in my career, and there is no question in the list of Patrick players," Reid said in a statement. "The best thing is that he is still at the beginning of his career. He is a natural leader and is always grinding, whether he is on the field, in a wet room or watching a movie, he wants to be the best. " A competitor. Hai and his fellow players feed him. Energy. He makes all of us better as an organization and we are blessed that he is going to be our quarterback for years to come. "

So, according to ESPN's Adam Shere, one can feel good about his decision to make the Mahomes the richest player in NFL history, and now turn his financial attention to defending Chris Jones. He was surrounded by quarterbacks for much of his history of travel. With this move of the Mahomes, they have avoided that type of purification again for at least the next 12 years.
