East Texas Kid Patrick Mahomes Rakes In 10-Year, $400M Deal With Chiefs
Holy cow! You read that headline correctly - Whitehouse native and Super Bowl champion Patrick Mahomes has signed a 10-year contract with the Kansas City Chiefs worth over $400 million.
That's insane. The move will tie Mahomes to Kansas City through 2031, and that town's gonna be rockin!
According to ESPN, Mahomes had two years and $27.6 million left on his existing deal -- $2.8M this year, $24.8M in 2021.
The 24-year-old was named Super Bowl MVP after Kansas City's 31-20 victory over the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl LIV. The win gave Mahomes another title - ya know other than 'East Texas phenomenon' - he's the first quarterback in NFL history to win a league MVP and Super Bowl before turning 25.
How cool is this for this kid?
We'll forever be celebrating Mahomes' accomplishments here in piney woods of East Texas as he's representing his home very well on the big stage.
