The Mahomes Contract
Some people think that Mahomes’ contract will cause a complete meltdown in Kansas City. This was a Catch-22 for the franchise because they had the best player in the NFL on their hands. They knew that it was crucial to pay him a record contract to keep him at Arrowhead Stadium (via NFL.com).
But this also affects their salary cap in a big way and it may prevent them from rebuilding shortly. Expect to see them restructure his deal several times as they attempt to manipulate the cap. But it’s not going to be easy and it may hurt them. Mahomes is a hero now but he may live long enough to become a villain.
