Even Lamar Jackson was blown away by Patrick Mahomes’ contract.
Mahomes signed a massive 10-year contract extension with the Kansas City Chiefs last week that could be worth as much as $503 million. That is the most amount ever for a professional athlete, and it definitely got Jackson’s attention.
“It’s a crazy number,” Jackson said of Mahomes’ contract during an interview on “SportsCenter” on Monday. “No one has ever dreamed about that. Probably dreamed about it, but no one ever expected that. Half a million dollars. That’s different. But he deserves it. He deserves it.”
