Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes has arguably had the best 2020 of anyone on planet Earth. After leading his team to a Super Bowl victory in February, Mahomes signed the biggest contract in sports history. He’s also made some major announcements about his personal life with his girlfriend, Brittany Matthews. Life is so good for Mahomes that he treated himself to a new accessory that has a jaw-dropping price tag.
Patrick Mahomes signed a $503 million contract
After leading the Chiefs to their first Super Bowl victory in 50 years, Mahomes signed a 10-year contract extension worth $503 million. According to NFL.com, the deal included $477 million of guarantees plus another $25 million in potential bonuses.
Mahomes is the first athlete in history to sign a half-billion dollar contract. He is also the first NFL player to be the highest-paid athlete in the sports world.
“I’ve had the privilege of coaching a lot of incredible athletes and special people in my career, and Patrick is without question on that list of players.” Chiefs head coach Andy Reid said in a statement. “The best part is he’s still early in his career. He’s a natural leader and always grinding, whether that’s on the field, in the weight room or watching film, he wants to be the best.”
The long-term contract comes on the heels of Mahomes and Matthews purchasing their first home in Kansas City. It appears the Texas natives and high school sweethearts are setting down roots in the midwest.
A wedding and a baby are coming soon
On the same day that Mahomes received his Super Bowl ring from the Kansas City Chiefs, the 25-year-old offered up another piece of jewelry to Matthews. Mahomes proposed to Matthews in a luxury suite at Arrowhead Stadium, and the couple documented the event on Instagram.
Matthews posted pics that featured the luxury suit decorated in white roses and a lighted sign that read, “Will you marry me?” The fitness trainer and former soccer player also showed off her diamond engagement ring.
A few weeks later, the couple had more news to share. Mahomes and Matthews revealed that they were expecting their first child. They both shared the news on their Instagram pages by showing off a sonogram pic.
Later, the couple revealed that they are expecting a baby girl. Both Mahomes and Matthews posted pics and videos of their gender reveal that featured their two dogs, Steel and Silver.
Patrick Mahomes loves high-priced accessories
After signing a half-billion dollar contract, Mahomes purchased a share of the Kansas City Royals, and he also tricked out his new $2 million home with a special room for his massive 180-pair shoe collection.
Mahomes also dropped some serious cash for a special Rolex watch. According to GQ magazine, cameras recently spotted the QB wearing a Rolex Daytona Rainbow, a colorful eye-popping timepiece.
The bezel features a rainbow of 36 baguette-cut sapphires, the rose gold case is set with 56 diamonds, and the hour markers also feature 11 more sapphires. This crown jewel of Mahomes’ watch collection has a price tag of $454,599. Of course, that’s just a drop in the bucket for the future NFL hall-of-famer.
Mahomes has also worn two other incredible watches this year. During the Chiefs’ Super Bowl parade, the 25-year-old wore a Rolex Yacht-Master that retails for up to $40,000, depending on the specific style.
For the championship ring presentation (and during his proposal to Matthews), Mahomes sported a GMT-Master that retails as high as $80,000.
