The basic $45 million a year average still shatters the $35 million annual average of the biggest prior National Football League deal to Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson, but Mahomes has a backloaded deal to some extent.

With Mahomes perched at the top of the list of most lucrative contracts in U.S. sports, we take a look at the complete top 10 in the photo gallery above. "I can't wait to build this legacy not only on the field but off it".

It included clips of when Mahomes was drafted by the Chiefs (and was surrounded by his family), his teammates and coach Andy Reid.

But the average everyday person will still be able to do some fun activities that Mahomes' contract with the Chiefs prohibits him from doing.

Everyone in the National Football League knew Patrick Mahomes was going to receive a monster contract after he led Kansas City to a win in Super Bowl 54.

It also "allows an opportunity for the team to be great around me the entire duration of my career", Mahomes said.

"We believe there could be another small one after it", he said. But it's not the length of time that's catching the attention of sports fans. It's one of the gifts that sets him apart as an elite quarterback. "There's potentially a tough time ahead of us (with virus losses)". "It's a win for the player; it's also a win for the team and the organization".

Reid, 62, didn't rule out sticking around for the duration of Mahomes' deal.

Veach shared the story of Tilis coming down to his office last Spring, not long after Trout's deal with the Angels was signed and said that Mahomes "was going to get a baseball contract". "I'm ready to go".

General manager Brett Veach noted that conversations around a contract extension began in 2018 after Mahomes' first full season as a starter.

"None of this happens without Clark Hunt obviously", Reid said.
