As part of his new deal, Mahomes will be paid a guaranteed $210.6 million between 2023-‘26, which is the most money across any four-year span in league history. The two sides will reportedly revisit the deal after the ‘26 season, per ESPN.
After signing his restructured deal, just one day after turning 28, Mahomes took to social media with a three-word message in order to express his gratitude.
“Thank you God!” wrote Mahomes on X, alongside a prayer emoji.
Thank you God! 🙏🏽— Patrick Mahomes II (@PatrickMahomes) September 18, 2023
The NFL world on social media had plenty to say about Mahomes’s new deal, too, as fans and even some players fired off strong reactions after the news was reported.
