He gets the 63 million signing bonus, but after that it’s all based on certain mechanisms. He has to make the roster each season to get the other guaranteed money, and rarely do football players see the life of their contracts due to being cut, injury, etc. So will Mahomes see the life of that contract? Possibly, being that he is a QB, the position is on his side. But due to it being football I doubt it.
It’s a big contract, biggest in sports history based on the numbers, but still ain’t touching Mike Trouts’ guaranteed money for all of the contract, regardless of injury, trade, etc.
