I predict the Chefs won’t draft a QB in the first round.
Mahomes’ 10-year extension is worth a total of $503 million. That includes $477 million in contract guarantee mechanisms, giving Mahomes opt-out years if those mechanisms aren’t exercised by the team.
In comparison, just to show an example of another QB with a different type of contract, another QB, Jameis Winston, signed a one year non-guaranteed contract for $1.1 mil with a $148K signing bonus which does not include extra revenue from his side job as an Uber driver.
Chiefs would want to win another SB in the next season or two because they’re going to start losing good players when their contracts are up with that cap hit on their books. Chris Jones is already demanding 20m+/yr or he’s gone.
Also they would be praying Mahomes stays healthy. An ACL or two and your stuck with 50mil/yr for an injured player and no avenue to replace him.
Those numbers are NOT wrong….the $503 number comes from the total still left on the original 2 years….the TEN year value is at $477M So it is $477 for ten years, the other $26M comes for this year and next year.
Couple of things. Good DCs are spending day and night to stop what he’s doing. He will get figured out. He won the lottery by being drafted by Reid. But, the NFL is now, and always will be a defensive coaches game. Offensive driven teams win single super bowls, defensive driven teams become dynasties. It’s weird…
Remember the greatest show on turf. Lolz at those cheating dicks.
Yeah, very weird. I mean, let’s say the guy plays “well” over the next 3 years. Injured or not, they can just cut him because he’s not worth the investment anymore. To me, this is a lose-lose contract.
Nah. Reid’s system is better but Lamar is a superior overall player. No one is ever going to mistake Mahomes with someone more than just a one or two season wonder. There is nothing transcendent about his game. Fun gimmick player. Nothing more.
Man, you are way off on this one. Like way way off. Lamar Jackson is a pro’s pro. Mahomes is a system robot. There’s a huge difference. I have zero rooting interest in a QB based on where they played college ball outside of my own university. It’s just funny to see the media narrative around Mahomes and less so around Jackson, when Jackson is clearly the headier more improvisational QB. It’s weird…
