- Rand Getlin of NFL Network reports that the deal included $22 million at signing and $28.5 million by March of 2017, which results in a $12 million new money average.
- According to Mike Florio, $22 million is fully guaranteed at signing and $28.5 million will be fully guaranteed by March 2017.
There was talk that the Chiefs could try to get a new contract in place with Fisher at some point over the next year or so.
However, it is interesting that they weren’t able to lock up franchise S Eric Berry before the deadline. Beyond that, a recent report mentioned that contract talks with DT Dontari Poe haven’t progressed much at all.
Fisher, 25, was the No. 1 overall pick back in 2013. He was in the final year of his four-year, $22.19 million rookie contract and set to make a base salary of $675,000 in 2016 when the team picked up his fifth-year option back in April.
The fifth-year option will run the Chiefs $11.9 million in 2017, but is guaranteed only for injury.
In 2015, Fisher appeared in all 16 games for the Chiefs and was rated by Pro Football Focus as the No. 36 offensive tackle out of 77 qualifying players.
