Kansas City Chiefs history can be broken down into two parts: Before Patrick Mahomes and after Patrick Mahomes.
Mahomes has established himself as the best quarterback in the league, and it’s not even close.
So, it’s only natural that the Chiefs plan to do right by him and honor him as such by making him the highest-paid player in the NFL again.
Report: #Chiefs are expected to re-do Patrick Mahomes’ contract to make him the highest-paid player in NFL history, per Mike Florio.
Florio says that after talking to people about it, it’s expected to happen prior to the beginning of the 2023 season.

According to Mike Florio, via Dov Kleiman, the Chiefs will restructure Mahomes’ deal before the start of the season, which obviously led to plenty of reactions on social media.
Mahomes ain’t worth that money

That is likely be the end of their dynasty. He will have to decide whether to take all he can or keep a structure to keep a good team around him.

What’s the point of giving him more if he is already happy with what he got?

Mahomes set the standard for the new highly-inflated quarterback market with that huge contract extension a couple of years ago.
But his once-record-breaking deal has now become a bit of a bargain if compared to what some of his colleagues have gotten.
Lamar Jackson eclipsed all previous marks by earning $52 million per year.
Mahomes has become the most prolific and dominant offensive force in the game, and the Chiefs already got another Super Bowl out of him just a couple of years into that massive deal.
Andy Reid’s team silenced their doubters by reaching the promised land again in the very same season they parted ways with superstar wideout Tyreek Hill.
And even though Eric Bieniemy will no longer be in town, they’re still expected to be the team to beat out of the AFC, so it’s only right that their future Hall-of-Fame quarterback gets the money he’s worth.
