I read the tweet copied below and thought I had been had by Barry McCockiner. But no, this is real news from actual Adam Schefter and not a fake account:
Chiefs and QB Patrick Mahomes have reached agreement on a 10-year — 10-year! — contract extension that ties him to Kansas City through the 2031 season, league sources tell ESPN.

The salary amount hasn’t been announced yet but people had been assuming it would amass $200 million. Well, 10+ years of service will get you there.
More details to come, but it’s safe to congratulate Pat Mahomes on becoming the highest paid player in the NFL.
