Patrick Mahomes Net Worth
Patrick Mahomes net worth and salary: Patrick Mahomes is an American professional football player who has a net worth of $10 million. He played for Texas Tech before being drafted as the 10th pick in the first round of the 2017 NFL draft by the Kansas City Chiefs.
Patrick Mahomes was born in Tyler, Texas in September 1995. He played quarterback at Whitehouse High School where he also played baseball and basketball. Mahomes played his college football at Texas Tech where he was named Second-team All-Big 12 in 2106. He was drafted #10 overall by the Kansas City Chiefs in 2017. In college he set NCAA records for single-game yards passing with 734 and single-game yards total offense with 819 in the same game against Oklahoma in 2016. Mahomes became the Chiefs starting QB in 2018. He set NFL records for most touchdown passes thrown through first three career games, most touchdown passes thrown through first two games of a season, most touchdown passes thrown through first three games of a season, and youngest quarterback to throw for six touchdowns in a game. In January 2020 Patrick and the Chiefs won the AFC Championship which sent them to Super Bowl LIV, the team's first Super Bowl appearance in 50 years.
Salary and Contracts: In 2017 when he first joined the NFL, Patrick signed a four year deal with the Chiefs that was worth a total of $16.2 million. The contract was fully guaranteed and came with a $10 million signing bonus. After proving himself to be a super star, many NFL analysts predict that Patrick's next contract will be unlike any that the league has ever seen. Going into the Super Bowl he had two years of his rookie deal remaining. He becomes eligible for an extension as soon as the Super Bowl ends. Many believe this extension will shatter NFL records. It's very likely his extension will be a league record-setting $200 million. The contract will likely be at least 50% guaranteed and come with $40 million per year in average salary.
If you're thinking that $200 million may not seem totally enormous, keep in mind that when Eli Manning retired right around the time of the 2020 Super Bowl, he retired with a league record in career total earnings, at $252 million. Eli earned that record setting amount over a 17 year period across multiple extremely large contracts.
