The 10 largest sports contracts in the United States

Shohei Ohtani's signing with the Los Angeles Dodgers for $700 million for 10 seasons is not only the largest contract in major league history, but also the most expensive in the history of American sports.

Before the Ohtani deal, the largest contract for an athlete in the United States was that of Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes, which was worth $503 million for 10 years.
