Patrick Mahomes still has two years left on his previous contract with the Chiefs. If everything goes according to plan, the Texas Tech alum will be playing for Kansas City for the next 12 years.

It’s crazy to consider what Patrick Mahomes has already accomplished in his NFL career thus far. The Chiefs QB won the 2018 NFL MVP before taking home the Super Bowl trophy this past season.
Mahomes is worth every penny the Chiefs will be paying him over the next 12 years.
The Kansas City QB is bound to bring the organization a few more Super Bowls before his playing days are over.
