Pro Football Talk reports that the Kansas City Chiefs and first-round pick Dontari Poe have reached an agreement on a four-year deal that doesn’t include the offset language that the Chiefs had been reportedly seeking.
At least they were able to figure this out in time for training camp, as getting Poe acclimated to their defensive scheme is very important, considering that they drafted him to be starting for them in the near future.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that the Kansas City Chiefs and first-round pick DT Dontari Poe were “not close” to coming to an agreement as of Tuesday, via Arrowhead Pride.
Poe is reportedly looking to secure a fully-guaranteed deal, but the Chiefs are obviously looking for some protection in his contract. Poe was certainly worthy of the “workout warrior” label after he lit up the NFL Combine this year. His overall performance in college wasn’t as impressive, but he’s certainly a very talented young player, that just happens to fit the Chiefs needs quite well, so at some point, someone will have to give in.
