Street. Joseph, Mo. – From today in 2020 when the Kansas City Chiefs Quarterback Patrick Mahomes Signing a 10-year, $450 million contract extension that made him the highest-paid player in the NFL by average salary, he knew the discrimination wouldn’t last forever.
Surely the contracts signed this year by Aaron RodgersAnd the Keeler Murray And the Deshaun Watson It dropped him to fourth on the list. Mahomes said that in addition to anticipating this development, he is OK with it.
“When I signed my agreement, I knew I would go on with life no matter how the market was [went]Mahomes said Friday when he was talking about presidents training camp at Western Missouri State University. “You just keep playing. Money is one thing but when you get the Super Bowl rings at the end of your career I think that’s going to be the thing you look at again. I think I’ve made enough money in the football field and beyond that it’s not going to matter in the end of the day.
“Especially as a quarterback, the next player is the highest-paid man. Any of these top-tier quarterbacks, they make a huge difference in the NFL football teams. [older contracts are] We will miss them. ”
Mahomes said he expects the average salary of $45 million from extending it to drop further into the rankings once such brokers as Joe BoroughAnd the Justin Herbert And the Russell Wilson Signing extensions with their teams.
“They will continue to raise the standards even higher,” Mahomes said. “You always want to get paid and take care of your family, but I want a great team around me too.”
On Saturday, The Chiefs kick off a three-day camp for intermediate and rookie players. Other veterans reported on Monday and that the team’s full training camp starts on Wednesday.
The Chiefs will likely open training camp without the unsigned franchise player, who has left Orlando Brown. The Chiefs and Brown failed to agree the terms of a multi-year contract by last week’s deadline, so his only option to play for the team this season is to accept a one-year contract offer worth $16.6 million.
Mahomes said, “I talk to Orlando all the time. He and I have a great relationship. We obviously wanted to get the deal done, I’m sure he wanted to do it. … I’m excited to have him here and be back on the team again.”
“When he was not in the [offseason practice] He was asking me questions. He was watching the movie, he was doing everything when he did [returns] He’s ready to go… Obviously it didn’t work out for him this season the way he wanted, but when he gets here I’m sure he’ll be ready to go and he’ll go out there and show what the caliber of a player is again. ”
Mahomes said he was unsure of Brown’s plans for the training camp.
Mahomes said: “You want him to be here just because he’s the man that he is and he’s a captain in that soccer team. But at the same time when it comes to money, contracts and things like that, I don’t force anyone to do anything because I know they’re trying to support Captivate them for the long term. But as a teammate and as a friend, you want him to be a part of this.”
The Chiefs have several candidates to replace Brown, although none of them are accomplished in the left tackle. Coach Andy Reed suggested that the chiefs look at the left guard Joe Thunewho performed well in a left tackle in one game last season in place of the injured Brown.
“We know Joe Thony can do it in a heartbeat,” Reed said. “If we need to go that way, we’ll go that way.”
