Last summer, fresh off of winning MVP of Super Bowl LIV, the Kansas City Chiefs signed Patrick Mahomes to a record 10-year contract. While the price tag may have been shocking, it was not surprising to see a generational talent at the quarterback position set the market for NFL contracts. Mahomes delivered in year one of the new deal, leading the Chiefs to a second consecutive Super Bowl appearance, despite ultimately losing to Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
After offseason toe surgery, Mahomes is back to work at Chiefs OTAs, and he has his sights set on even bigger and better things in 2021. Namely, he wants his Chiefs to become the first team in league history to go 20-0.
Which brings us to today’s quiz of the day. In order to lead K.C. to a perfect season, it will likely take another MVP effort from the NFL’s most highly compensated player. So with that in mind, how many of the current highest-paid players in the NFL (based off total contract value) can you name in five minutes?
