Patrick Mahomes' contract in the 2020 offseason was historic, and changed the QB market forever. Ever since then, QBs have been demanding more and more money.

Here is a chart showing a comparison between the current highest-paid QBs in the league and the highest paid QBs in the league 20 years ago. This trend may soon cross over into other positions as well, but for now it will continue to affect the QB market more than anyone else.
