Reacting to Patrick Mahomes’ STAGGERING $503m contract extension | Inside The Huddle

published on July 17, 2020

Jeff let's get right into it then you are so much to talk about patrick mahomes signs a ten-year extension worth reported five hundred and three million dollars it ties him to the Chiefs for the next 12 years through the twenty thirty one season first mr just give me

Your initial thoughts to begin with well I think it's a win win I obviously it's a win for Patrick financially and it's a huge win for Kansas City because that's their guy and that's the guy that they want to take them for the next ten years

So a guide that franchise for the next ten years and I think it's a deal that it's you know the first reaction that you have is oh my god how are they going to fit everybody in the cap with that deal but as you start to go through the

You know the mechanics of the deal Neil I think it's friendly for it for them to continue to build their football team around Patrick Maul let's talk about the player first Jeff the accolades keep coming in for Patrick mahomes in his

First full season as a starter he was the league's MVP in his second full season as a starter in 2019 he was the Super Bowl MVP and a Super Bowl champion he's already been to two Pro Bowls in the past two seasons Jeff

He's thrown for nine thousand one hundred and twenty eight yards and seventy six touchdowns I mean you could you felt this was coming at a groundbreaking deal for a player of this magnitude that we it's just because of

How everyone's been talking about my home I think it's a situation you know we kind of understood was in the works and and yesterday it came out that red feed said that they've been working on this deal since 2018 and you know

Obviously they know how important he is for their plans Andy Andy in his press conference that I put on my best Tommy Bahama shirt and celebration of getting back to home so that's pretty deep praise right there

But you know I know introduction no excuse to pull in a Hawaiian shirt anyway but you know what it's such a great deal and I think the kids gonna every penny of it you know because of his not only the things that you just

Put on the you know on the screen there but his leadership the way he's loved in the community is is international he will be the next superstar the next Rockstar if you will of the nfo and I think that you know

It's going to translate into marketing and all kinds of spin-off benefits Lucchese let's look at this deal then it was a historic deal in terms of this sporting landscape no sportsmen as ever or sports woman has ever been paid as

Much as Patrick mahomes there is a no trade clause in the deal it's the first time that an NFL player has actually been the highest-paid player in the history of sport Jeff as we look at the deal and I again is it's 503 million

There are lots of guarantee mechanisms I don't know what they mean but they are there's lots of language I'm sure we're never actually see all of it but you know even the critics of this deal said well actually it's 503 over 12 years or

Whatever I mean even then it's he's gonna get thirty nine and a half million per year Russell Wilson's top of the market at 35 there's been a lot of criticism of mahomes for signing such a long deal and giving away leverage I

Want to get your thoughts on that website I suppose it does there have to be a winner and a loser in a trade can it be exactly what you just said a win-win why do we have to criticize Patrick mahomes for for signing a long

Deal and not having to worry about anything financially for the recipes like we can just go play football well I think Patrick said it really well last night when he said he didn't want it to be a situation where he's the guy that

Took all the money and there was none for anybody else he's interested in building a dynasty he talked about building a legacy in Kansas City and I think you know that's that's really really important that we remember that

That this is a different kind of kid he could guy that just broke the bank and bankrupted the Chiefs because they were willing to do almost anything to keep him and what he did was very similar in some ways to what Brady has done over

Time in New England where yeah he could have held a gun to their head but his he said let's make it so that I'm compensated and certainly he's compensated extremely well but also where there's room going

Forward for us to have a great football team in Kansas City for the next ten years yeah my home said I wanted the security to take care of my family and future generations but I also wanted to have a great football team around me you

Can see this Chiefs team being in the Superbowl mix for the next ten years or more Jeff and actually when you look at these are the guys that have earned the most money in their NFL careers Eli Manning 252 million Peyton Manning 248

Million drew Brees 244 Tom Brady 235 Big Ben 227 let's say they chopped the back end the the back three or four years off my home's deal let's say he earns four hundred million dollars throughout his

NFL career he's eclipsed in anyone who's ever picked up a football so he doesn't he's not gonna go hungry on this deal I was actually really disappointed to see how much criticism there was from her homes because he didn't tick every box

And this is how you play the leverage game he didn't need to he wants to play football he's already gonna be handsomely rewarded yeah I think you realized how much money do you have we're talking about 400 million dollars

Neal and he's not only taking care like you said he's not only taking care of himself but his children their children and on into perpetuity you know it's entire family and you know I think there comes a point where your ego gets

Involved this is where I sensed Leigh Steinberg very much you know lead to I just really think he always sees he always tries to leave every deal in a situation where both sides come away feeling good about the deal and I think

He's done that again
