The Kansas City Chiefs have agreed to a restructured contract with quarterback Patrick Mahomes, and it is a very lucrative move for the best quarterback in the NFL, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com.

In Patrick Mahomes' restructured contract with the Chiefs, he receives $210.6 million between 2023 and 2026, according to Rapoport. That is the most in NFL history over a four year span. The compensation is guaranteed and with escalators, he could get up to $218.1 million by the end of 2026.

With quarterbacks like Josh Allen, Joe Burrow, Justin Herbert and Lamar Jackson getting their long-term extensions in recent years, getting paydays that were significantly more than what Mahomes was going to receive before the restructure.

Mahomes' contract still has nine years remaining on his contract, but the restructure puts him back into the range of top quarterbacks. The Chiefs and Mahomes will likely renegotiate down the line after 2026.
