The Kansas City Chiefs plan on opening contract extension talks with Patrick Mahomes this summer.
“The negotiations are something we’ll be getting into this summer,” Chiefs owner Clark Hunt said on a Facebook Live event with 105.3 The Fan in Dallas. “But what he has said and what we’ve said, both sides, is he wants to be a Kansas City Chief for life, and that’s our mentality as well. We want him to play his entire career in Kansas City, and that’s what we’re going to be shooting for.”
Mahomes is entering the fourth year of his rookie deal, set to count $5.3 million against the salary cap with an $825,000 base salary.
Mahomes will almost certainly become the NFL's highest paid player when his contract is finalized.
