Expect Patrick Mahomes to once again be the highest-paid player in football on an APY basis, before Week One. https://t.co/k2dDcjahE8

Now, with Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson at $52 million per year, Mahomes has fallen $7 million per year behind the highest-paid player in the sport.


Chiefs G.M. Brett Veach already has vowed to address the Mahomes deal after more quarterback contracts are completed. While Veach didnít delve into any specifics, hereís what reasonably should be expected, based on our conversations with folks aware of the dynamics of the situation.

Expect Mahomes, before the season begins, to once again be the highest-paid player in league history.

The details will be interesting, and subject to differing interpretations. Because Mahomes has nine years left on his current contract, a new-money APY in excess of $52 million per year would be obtained simply by tacking three years and a penny more than $156 million on the back end of the existing deal.

The real question will become the value of the contract from the moment itís signed. Also relevant to the analysis will be the full guarantee at signing, and the cash flow in the first three years of the revised deal.

In 2020, Mahomes swapped a high APY and a complicated but lucrative guarantee structure for cash flow in the years that were most likely to be affected by the pandemic. Now that those days have come and gone, the cash flow can be boosted in the early years of a revised deal.

Whether big-picture proclamations or devilish details, a new deal is coming for Mahomes, sooner than later. He has more than earned it ó and with each new quarterback deal that is done, his own situation becomes more glaring. Look for that to at least be partially rectified in the coming weeks or months.

Ultimately, Mahomes is trying to strike the balance of fair compensation with leaving enough cash behind to have a team that lets him pursue championships and, ultimately, to chase Tom Bradyís all-time record of seven championships. Mahomes needs five to tie, six to win.

While not yet a real threat to Brady, Mahomes isnít far from making things interesting. And that could be enough to get Brady interested in trying to get to No. 8 before itís all said and done, just in case.

Whatever. Go ahead and add more years and more money to the back end of this deal. It only means we'll have larger coffers at the Bank of Mahomes whenever we need some salary cap space.

The media really wants Patrick to bend us over a barrel.

None of the coastal elites want a Chiefs dynasty for the next fifteen years.

I'm surprised Florio took enough time away from getting plowed in the shitpipe by an AIDS-infested Ugandan to complete this article.

It's not that it's coastal elites, most fans grew very tired of the Patriots so the Chiefs just replacing them in the "one team always wins" spot is being met with groans.

Could be a good idea to get some glaring numbers out there right before Herbert and Burrow sign new deals.

That guy has zero credibility with me. I'm just going to assume that he's lying.

He really is obsessed.

Get ready for him to trot out his other crazy idea: that Mahomes should get a percentage of the salary cap. Nevermind the fact that over the next three seasons Mahomes will make more than any other QB when you combine his salary and endorsements.

He needs everyone to know that he saved Patrick from himself and the evil Chiefs.

:-) It's just really dumb on the face of it. So apparently how we're going to make this 'right' is to take 3 MORE years of his career a literal decade from now and pay market value of today's prices at QB for them. Fucking please do.
