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 we’ll 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 we’ve said, both sides is, he wants to be a Kansas City Chief for life, and that’s our mentality as well. We want him to play his entire career in Kansas City, and that’s what we’re 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 he’ll sign a long-term extension and become the NFL’s 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. We’d seen the no-look throws. We had seen the 70-yard bombs, all that stuff – I’m 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 he’s 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.”

Howcome elite QBs never test the market like other players do?

I actually think Mahomes’ deal is going to cap QB salaries for a while. Teams won’t simply say it’s your turn to get paid so here’s your deal a bit higher than Mahomes. He is so far beyond everyone else in ability and accomplishments that the argument won’t exist from players, GMs, or fans that the next QB should get more than the previous guy, Mahomes.

You aren't going to hear leaks or other garbage like the abortion going on in Dallas.

This deal will get done, it will be expensive, but clean.

They’ll get a huge payday from their current team guaranteed before they hit their contract year. Why risk the money when an Alex Smith injury could happen every week?

That’s usually how you end up on a bad football team.

Fuck it.

I legit want them to offer him a fixed percentage of the salary cap every year.

If it goes up, so does his contract.

Give him a true "career contract"

Isn't that something the NFL wants? I thought that was something we had discussed in another thread.

Mahomes agent has said repeatedly that Mahomes wants to win and prioritizes winning over maxing his earning potential.

Mahomes passed on many endorsement deals as a rookie and even in his second year so he could focus on the game.

He’s not going to take a stupid low contract, he will be the highest paid player in history, but they will structure his deal to be able to be flexible every year and he’s not going to demand a crazy amount.

My prediction is and extension of 4/150 with 90-100m fully guaranteed.

That makes him signed the next 6 seasons.

4 more titles in that time span.

I bet the talk to Mahomes earlier this year and came to an agreement about not doing his new contract until later. That way no one gets upset and everyone is on the same page.

good job.

Of course he's going to say that. He's his agent and he is there to make Pat look good. You honestly think he'd come out and say "Pat wants the Brinks truck"?

PMII has said many times that his agent is doing the negotiating and he's just focusing on football. Lee gets paid based on what Pat makes. There is no way he signs for less than $40 mil/year. He will probably be closer to $45 than $40.
