Mahomes extended: 10 years, $450-503M

Recommended Posts

I think this is good news for the Colts.   I'm stretching a bit.

Watson may be looking for a huge contract with Houston soon.  He is singed for the next 2 seasons, but I bet he'll want an extension before that.  Houston will have to pay big bucks to keep him and eat some cap space in a few years.

The really interesting part of this is that when he's done, he'll truly be able to buy a part ownership in a team, if he wishes to do so. And if he (or his financial agents) are able to successfully invest and grow that pile, he may be able to buy a team outright one day.

I hope Luck is at home thinking the same thing.    He was going to have a huge contract.    He's young enough to still change his mind.   Sometime the thought of what that money can do can be motivating.

I don't see that happening though.

Irsay did say Luck was walking away from half a billion... I assumed he was exaggerating, but maybe not.

He was gonna get one of these deals if his arm didn't fall off, but Mahomes reset the market. Don't think Luck was going to do that.

Too bad for him, too bad for the fans.

 You guys still talking about a guy who walked away from his team?  He's enjoying his life of non-leisure,  family-time and freedom.  

 

Don't give him a second thought.

Luck's next contract would have been negotiated at about the same time too. Either now or next year if he had kept his level of play from the last two seasons he played. Not sure he would have gotten the same number of years because he would have been 30 rather than Mahomes who is 24 now(25 during most of the season), but the per year contract IMO would have been similar. Maybe 7/320 or something of the sort...

I don't think Luck is motivated by money past some point. He seems like the type who would be equally happy and comfortable both with the 100M he earned during his career and with the 500M he could have earned in the next 10 years. I think he's more likely to be jealous of the success and ability to play football pain free, than about Mahomes' contract. I don't think he's ever coming back, either.

This country is so unfair. How will Patrick ever feed his family. He should of been a police officer. They have it made now days.

For that matter Kaepernick has it made too. His net worth has to be at least 30 Million? That is just a guess and he can't even play anymore.

I quickly go back to Jim Irsey telling AL, look your leaving $500 million on the table. That seemed like a pipe dream but then again Irsey has experience with top QBs and paying them top money.

I hope he ends up jealous of Rivers and the great O-line and running game he gets to play with.

    • One of the early 3 round mocks I saw had us taking a DE in both the 1st and 2nd round lol.  https://247sports.com/LongFormArticle/2021-NFL-Mock-Draft-three-rounds-college-football-Justin-Fields-Trevor-Lawrence-Micah-Parsons-150078428/   I think Houston still has a few very productive years left in the tank. Just adding Buckner will make things easier on him. Regardless, we really need someone like Turay to emerge as a 3 down guy. Even if Turay emerges and Houston is still playing well, I'd love to see us add a 1st round DE. I'm tired of 2nd round projects.   
    • Thanks. I did take a little break. There was nothing new, and was tired of reading the re-hashing of old stuff lol. Things should be starting to heat up a bit with new news, so decided to jump back in. I'm a little stir crazy, but at least the Pacers are getting ready to start the playoffs. Hoping they keep going until FB starts.   Don't have a sub anymore (Athletic), but I have looked at all those games in detail (some of the info in previous post). There are a lot of reasons we fell off. Losing Moore obviously impacted our pass D, but there was a lot more to the story. We played some very good QBs, we had other DB's injured, our O stunk (we had an atrocious number of 3 and outs), our pressure % stunk, etc.. We also got torched deep, which is not even Kenny's area. Rock was the only DB we had playing at a high level late in the year. Willis really got picked on a few games. Hooker was up and down.   The Athletic is pretty good, but they used to be a lot better. Their college coverage has really dropped off. Not a huge fan of Keefer (who wrote the article) either, but he's OK. He was just picked up by WISH (Indy's CW) which is an upgrade though to their coverage.
    • Don’t forget Johnson. We will see if Dulin’s ST abilities helps him make it over Johnson. But with Pitman and Pascal it will probably be hard for Johnson  to  make it.
    • He has a great voice. He has a vibe about him I think he is going to be s very good player. The rest of the video is hillarious.
    • Did you read the article, or did you just spin the tweet? I don't have a subscription to the athletic, but from their reputation, the article likely has more than 'surface level at best' underpinnings to their analysis. Perhaps not.   Btw, welcome back. Was starting to wonder if you were taking an extended break from the forum.
