All the details should be known in a couple of days. Why a new contract? Because he had fallen to 8th place on the QB pay scale.
The NFL hasn't been happy with the structure of Mahomes' last contract. 30 owners plus GB have yelled loudly at NFL headquarters for allowing the original contract to be approved. No contracts similar to it have been allowed since.
One thing we do know is that this new contract is actually a 3 year contract since both parties agreed to revisit/rework this new contract after the 2026 season.
It pisses me off for a different reason - that contract is a significant competitive advantage for the Chiefs if no one else is allowed to do it.that pisses me off the league office for no longer alllowing it. legal creativity and meriticracy are almost dead in the nfl.
