On Monday, Mahomes and the Chiefs agreed to a 10-year extension worth up to $503 million that will keep him in Kansas City through the 2031 season, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Mahomes is the fourth first-round QB to get extended before the start of his fourth season since 2011 (joining Ryan Tannehill, Carson Wentz and Jared Goff).
Mahomes won't turn 25 until Sept. 17, but his production at this age is impressive. His 17 career 300-yard passing games is tied with Matthew Stafford for the most in league history by a player before his 25th birthday, and his eight games with at least four TD passes leads all QBs before turning 25.
Here is how social media reacted Monday to the new deal for Mahomes:
