The Pittsburgh Steelers beat the Cleveland Browns 26-22 on Monday Night Football. Unfortunately for the Browns, running back Nick Chubb suffered a brutal knee injury and will miss the rest of the season. The Browns are exploring their options for replacing Chubb. Former running back Kareem Hunt and former LA Ram Cam Akers are reportedly in contention.
Kansas City Chiefs star quarterback Patrick Mahomes is getting a new restructured contract that will put Mahomes on par with other elite players in his position. Mahomes will now get $210.6 million over the next four seasons, compared to the contract he signed in 2020 which is worth $450 million over 10 years. Mahomes will now be guaranteed an average yearly salary of $52.65 million through 2026 with an option for the Chiefs to restructure again after the 2026 season. The deal comes after the Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow became the highest-paid player in the NFL with a five-year $219 million contract.
