Chiefs to Begin Extension Talks with Patrick Mahomes This Summer

The Chiefs plan to begin contract extension negotiations with star quarterback Patrick Mahomes this summer, chairman Clark Hunt said Wednesday evening.

The negotiations are something well be getting into this summer, Hunt said on a Facebook Live event with 105.3 The Fan in Dallas. But what he has said and what weve said, both sides is, he wants to be a Kansas City Chief for life, and thats our mentality as well. We want him to play his entire career in Kansas City, and thats what were going to be shooting for.

Mahomes is currently set to count around $5.3 million against the salary cap in 2020 on the fourth year of his rookie contract, but the expectation is hell sign a long-term extension and become the NFLs highest-paid player given all he has accomplished early in his career.

Mahomes, 24, was named the NFL MVP in a spectacular 2018 and followed that up by leading the Chiefs to a Super Bowl title in the 2019 season, during which he threw for 4,031 yards, 26 touchdowns and five interceptions in 15 games in the regular season.

Hunt knows as well as anyone what Mahomes means to his organization.

In terms of special qualities, the thing that really struck me in 2018, the first year that he became a full-time starter for us, was his leadership ability, Hunt said. We knew he had these special physical gifts. We had seen him on the practice field. Wed seen the no-look throws. We had seen the 70-yard bombs, all that stuff Im not sure we had seen the left-handed throw but maybe. But anyhow, we knew we had that. But the pleasant surprise was what a great leader he was at age 23. An NFL locker room is a very difficult place to come into as a young player and lead, but it was very evident that the entire team was looking up to him in his first year as a starter and of course that carried over into this past season.

He has a tremendous amount of humility going back to what I said about leadership qualities. So hes very humble on one hand and very competitive on the other and his teammates all respect him and want to play for him and with him.

May need to know what Patrick wants first so you know if you can afford Jones long term.

I have trouble believing they'll get it done with all the uncertainty about next season, but fingers crossed.

Offer Mahomes naming rights to the stadium "Mahomes Stadium at Arrowhead Field", 5% ownership of the team, and a cap friendly contract. Or just make him the richest player in the history of the NFL averaging $40 to $45 million per on a 10+ year deal. Regardless, nobody in the front office gets more than 6 hours sleep until a long term deal is hammered out.

When teams "begin" negotiations of this magnitude, which side usually fires the first shot? I'm thinking neither side really wants to put their dollar figure out there first, even if they are thinking a similar number.
