Chiefs reportedly give Patrick Mahomes a 10-year contract extension

Chiefs reportedly give Patrick Mahomes a 10-year contract extension

Patrick Mahomes is a rich man who's about to be a RICH man. 

Enter Adam Schefter: 

10 years. TEN YEARS. It's an unprecedented contract in the NFL, though there's probably a great argument to be made that Mahomes is an unprecedented NFL player. In three years since being drafted 10th overall, the 2018 league MVP has won a Super Bowl while going 24-7 and throwing for 9412 yards with 76 touchdowns. 

RELATED: What would re-drafting the 2017 NFL Draft look like?

He was also, you may remember, available to Bears' GM Ryan Pace when the Bears had the 2nd overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft. Instead, Pace took Mitch Trubisky, who will enter the final year of his rookie contract as one of a few infamous first-round quarterbacks not to have their 5th-year option picked up. Look, I'm sorry, I'm required to mention this part. I don't like it either.
