Pat Mahomes signed the richest contract in the history of the NFL with the Kansas City Chiefs earlier this week. Reports are that the deal is worth up to $503 million. Half a billion dollar contract for 12 years. Mahomes is currently 24 years old so this contract will lock him up with the Chiefs until he is 36. So how much money is he actually going to make? He is guaranteed $63 million just for signing the contract. The rest of the contract is based on different incentives, let’s take a look.

Mahomes can earn an extra 1.25 million per season if the Chiefs reach the Super Bowl and another $1.25 million if he wins NFL MVP. So in order for him to reach the full $503 million, he would need to lead the Chiefs to the Super Bowl and win MVP each year over the next 12 years. 2027 will be the peak of the contract when Mahomes is owed $59.95 million.

Starting in 2022, Mahomes will make an average of $45 million per season. It’s always fun breaking down these massive contracts in different ways.
