Even Lamar Jackson was blown away by Patrick Mahomes’ contract.

Mahomes signed a massive 10-year contract extension with the Kansas City Chiefs last week that could be worth as much as $503 million. That is the most amount ever for a professional athlete, and it definitely got Jackson’s attention.

“It’s a crazy number,” Jackson said of Mahomes’ contract during an interview on “SportsCenter” on Monday. “No one has ever dreamed about that. Probably dreamed about it, but no one ever expected that. Half a billion dollars. That’s different. But he deserves it. He deserves it.”

J.J. Watt has funny message for Deshaun Watson after Mahomes contract

  J.J. Watt has funny message for Deshaun Watson after Mahomes contract For a handful of quarterbacks still negotiating extensions with their current teams, the news of Patrick Mahomes' extension carries some extra weight. That wasn't lost on J.J. Watt, who sent a funny message to his own quarterback.Deshaun Watson is one of those quarterbacks, and negotiations with the Houston Texans on a long-term contract are likely to come in the relatively near future. Watson knows it and the Texans know it. So does his Houston teammate J.J. Watt, who sent his quarterback a quick message upon learning about the Mahomes deal.

The Baltimore Ravens quarterback knows there is one thing separating him from getting that kind of deal too.

“I got to win me a Super Bowl. I got to get what he has,” Jackson said.

Jackson had a monster regular season last year. The former No. 32 overall pick passed for a league-high 36 touchdowns while also rushing for 1,206 yards and seven touchdowns, helping his Ravens go 14-2. But for the second year in a row, Jackson struggled in the playoffs, and his team got eliminated in their first postseason game (Jackson thinks he knows why).

Much like Mahomes, Jackson has an MVP award on his resume. But he needs a Super Bowl ring in order to have a contract that comes close to matching Mahomes’.

Danica Patrick shares cryptic posts about relationships after Aaron Rodgers breakup .
Patrick posted some cryptic quotes about relationships on her Instagram story Saturday. One was from Vienna Pharaon, who is a licensed marriage and family therapist. The passage read:“Look at the chosen relationship in your life and notice any themes. What role do you play? Who are you with them? Who do you believe you need to be? What stories do you tell yourself about what they can offer you? What can they or can’t they handle?“The way you choose people may offer you insight into what you’re craving or what shifts you may need to make in order to shift an overworked role you’ve held for a long time.
