Is Patrick Mahomes worth $500 Million?

Patrick Mahomes may be on his way to being the greatest quarterback ever and the Kansas City Chiefs are paying him like it. The reigning Super Bowl MVP received the richest sports deal in American professional sports, potentially receiving over $500 million over 12 years. Many think after winning an MVP, a Super Bowl and being named an All-Pro before turning 25, he is worth every penny of that deal. Others don't think it's prudent to sink that much money into a player when teams win championships. What do you think? 🏈

When you have two Pro-Bowl invitations, an All-Pro selection, win a Super Bowl MVP and NFL MVP as a quarterback, $500 million should be in your bank account. Patrick Mahomes dominated the league without knowing how to read a defense. We might be witnessing the greatest quarterback of all time and he deserves every penny he is getting from the Chiefs.

Tylt sports editor Dan Tran sits down with The Ringer's Tyler Tynes to breakdown whether Black quarterbacks are treated fairly in the NFL.

#TooMuchForMahomes

Patrick Mahomes deserves the money is getting, but that doesn't mean he should be getting it. When it comes to the salary cap, there are choices that need to be made about what you should do and what is necessary. The Chiefs should have given Mahomes the money, but in order to continue winning the league, they didn't need to give him that much.

Giving him half a billion dollars limits the amount of money they can give people to help him out. That means less money for the offensive line that is tasked to protect in, less money for talented receivers to catch his beautiful throws and less money for defenses to stop other teams from scoring.

This is not a wise move from the Chiefs.
