These athletes signed the greatest contracts in history

Patrick Mahomes, himself one of the greatest National Football League (NFL) quarterbacks we’ve ever seen, is paid like he belongs in a unique class. Sports Illustrated notes that the Kansas City Chiefs quarterback signed a 10-year contract for US $ 503 million in July 2020, the largest in sports history. Given that this is an NFL contract, the issue is a bit more complicated: Technically, it is a $ 450 million extension on top of Mahomes’ existing rookie contract, and the first five years are guaranteed against injury. If the 25-year-old stays with the Chiefs for the duration of the contract, which ends in 2031, Mahomes would then be 36 years old, but there’s a pretty good chance things will adjust along the way. Still, no matter how you break it down, this is a new high mark for sports contracts.
