Tuesday Night O/T: It’s been 24 hours, how are you feeling about Mahomes’ new contract?

 66 replies

Arrowhead Guys talk about anything.

Yesterday afternoon it was announced that Mahomes signed a massive contract extension with the Chiefs. The cap hits are as follows.

YearCap Hit (Millions $)
20205.35
202124.81
202231.45
202342.45
202439.95
202541.95
202641.95
202759.95
202844.45
202944.95
203050.45
203152.45

One interesting thing is that for all those large numbers, Mahomes won’t be the highest paid player in the NFL until 2023. Even in 2022 he’ll only be 7th behind such luminaries as Kirk Cousins and Jared Goff. With the increasing cap and new contracts constantly setting new records, it’s entirely possible that Mahomes won’t even be #1 in 2023 by the time we get 3 years of new quarterback contracts.

On the other end he will have a $60 million cap hit in 2027. That’s going to be a very interesting year.

Speaking of $60 million, that would be our dead cap hit now if we cut him before the season. So we’ll be stuck with him for at least one more year.

What are your thoughts on the new contract?

Surely no one is dumb enough to play single coverage on Tyreek with Mahomes throwing him the ball.

One thing worth noting about his contract is that he gets $500k to reside in KC over the offseasons. I doubt he’ll find it onerous to fufill that condition, he’s already basically in love with KC.

Tyrone

It’s a really good contract.

I’m still seeing stupid, uninformed posts like this from Sportscenter saying it’s 10 years/$503 million.

It’s not. His new contract is 10 years/$450 million with not-highly-likely (lets be realistic) incentives to bring the total up to $475 million. And if he is earning those incentives, awesome! Pay him all the money if we’re going to the Super Bowl.

In every year starting in 2022 Mahomes has incentives that are worth $2.5 million a year. To earn the incentives Mahomes has to win the NFL MVP award ($1.25 million) and the AFC title game ($1.25 million). The max extension value including all incentives is $475 million.

I’m guesstimating that he gets 50% of his incentive money. Not so much a matter of lack of AFCCGs, I’m counting on those mostly filling the card. The problem is that people are already adjusting their expectations of him, so the MVPs could be really fickle.

Tyrone
Reply to  BleedingRedAndGold
07/07/2020 7:41 pm

He’d have to destroy all standards for MVPs/Super Bowl appearances to get even half of those incentive. No Chiefs fan will complain if that happens.

The worst case scenario with him earning incentives would be 10 straight MVPs and 0 AFCCG wins.

It will likely by restructured by the time he’s collected 50-60% on this deal.

We are looking at shutting Austin down again for 35 days. Hospitals starting to fill up. Houston has really been hit hard..
We opened too soon. We are listed as an essential business , so we can still make a little money but not enough. I basically worked for free in April..
I’m all for doing what is needed, but this political bullshit needs to stop. Our fucking governor goes does a photo opp for trump on how Texans is going to open up early.. and look at us now!!

Its not my money so Im ecstatic that the best QB in franchise history is locked up for 12 years and was even reportedly in the negotiation making sure he got his but also that his teammates will still get theirs.

a hard salary cap that as you know continues to rise and the people making the money decisions are far smarter than me so I trust them to know how to make it work, so no I dont care

The salary cap only matters if you give the wrong people massive contracts. Once Berry and Watkins are off the books we will be good for a while.

This might be the first contract in the history of sports outside of Mike Trout’s where everyone agrees that it was a good contract. Shit people are even saying that Mahomes was underpaid.

Or alternatively his thought process was something like
$0.5B – check
Enough cap left to employ line to keep me vertical and receivers to catch – check
Good enough surrounding team to earn a lot of those incentives – check
Remember what the old man said about memories and winning – check

I guess it depends on whether his ego gets a bigger boost from a $ amount or winning SBs. Given the numbers I’d tentatively posit the latter.

One thing I’d like to see them take a look at is the question of if Mahomes’ contract has set a ceiling for other QBs, instead of inflating the market. Will teams say to them that to get Mahomes-level money they have to produce like him, as well, at least for a few years?

I think that’s a distinct possibility.

Cowered, like most of his ilk comes with two different gears. It’s one thing when he’s popously pontificating from his pulpit, but when interviewing someone he’s far more pleasant to watch. Even Brainless’ interview of Reid was a good watch.

They’re upbeat about him in this, otherwise I’d have prefaced it differently. And Bradshaw’s a good storyteller, even at his own expense.
