Earlier this week, the Kansas City Chiefs signed quarterback Patrick Mahomes to the biggest contract in sports history.
Mahomes signed a 10-year extension that will pay him as much as $503 million over the lifetime of the deal. Contracts that long don’t generally exist in the NFL, but the Chiefs wanted to make sure they locked in their Super Bowl-winning quarterback for the foreseeable future.
After Mahomes signed the new deal, analysts from around the country dove into whether or not it’s a good deal for him. In seven years, he’ll likely be underpaid, but then again – it’s $500 million so there’s no real argument against signing the deal.
Despite Mahomes’ success in his first two seasons as a starter, Colin Cowherd doesn’t think he’ll win more than one more Super Bowl before his contract is up. That’s right, Cowherd think Mahomes will hoist the Lombardi Trophy one more time – but that’s it.
Here’s what he had to say.

In his first season as a starter, Mahomes led the Chiefs to the AFC title game where he was close to defeating the New England Patriots.
A season later, he led the team to a Super Bowl title with a comeback performance against the San Francisco 49ers.
Of course, those wins came when he was on a rookie contract. With a heftier price tag moving forward, the Chiefs will have less money to build a quality roster with.
Then again, Mahomes elevates everyone he plays with, so we’ll never know how many Super Bowls he can win.
