Chiefs’ Patrick Mahomes delivers first message since agreeing to 10-year, $503 million extension
Kansas City Chiefs star quarterback Patrick Mahomes plans on staying in town for a long, long time.
Mahomes, 24, signed a massive contract extension with the AFC West franchise, inking a 10-year, $500-plus mission deal with the Chiefs on Monday.
Mahomes shared a video celebrating the newfound arrangement with Kansas City on Monday evening on Twitter.

“Chiefs Kingdom,” Mahomes writes at the bottom of the video. “You’ve been with me since the beginning, from rookie year to becoming a starter,” the video continues to flash footage of the former Texas Tech gunslinger getting selected with the 10th overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft by Kansas City in spite of veteran Alex Smith still starting for the team.
Mahomes’ video showcases some key moments of the young signal-caller growing into a star in front of Chiefs fans and NFL audiences, culminating in Kansas City’s 2019-20 postseason run and Super Bowl LIV victory in February of this year. “And we’re staying together. … For a long time,” Mahomes adds. “We’re chasing a dynasty.”
Mahomes, in just two seasons as the starter of the Chiefs, has turned heads and grown into the best active quarterback in the league, winning the NFL’s MVP award during his first full season as a starter in 2018 and later earning Super Bowl MVP distinction earlier this year. Mahomes’ dynamic playmaking under center and otherworldly throws have started to turn his name and number into the stuff of legends.
Chiefs fans can rejoice as Mahomes stays in Kansas City until the end of this decade, with perhaps more titles on their way.
