Chiefs, Mahomes to begin extension talks in summerMay 22, 2020 | 12:00 AM
Chiefs chairman and CEO Clark Hunt said the organization will begin negotiations with Patrick Mahomes this summer.
Analysis: "The negotiations are something we'll be getting into this summer," Hunt said during a Facebook Live event with Dallas' 105.3 The Fan. "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." Currently set to make $5.31 million in 2020 (and roughly $24.8 million the following year), Mahomes can't officially hit the open market until the summer of 2022 -- something that clearly won't happen under Hunt's watch. No matter Dak Prescott's and Deshaun Watson's upcoming terms, 24-year-old Mahomes' eventual contract will undoubtedly reset the market once agreed upon.
