Fisher, unfortunately, sustained a torn Achilles injury in the AFC Championship game, so he was expected to be placed on injured reserve ahead of the Super Bowl.
Fisher, 30, was the No. 1 overall pick back in 2013. He signed a four-year, $63 million extension with $40 million guaranteed back in 2016.
Fisher is owed a base salary of $1.07 million for the 2021 season.
In 2020, Fisher appeared in 15 games for the Chiefs and started all of them at left tackle.
Gay, 22, was selected with the No. 63 overall pick by the Chiefs last year. He agreed to a four-year, $5,271,046 contract with Kansas City and is set to earn a base salary of $849,593 next season and $1.08 million in 2022.
He suffered a torn meniscus in the AFC Championship game.
In 2020, Gay appeared in all 16 games for the Chiefs and recorded 39 tackles, a sack, a forced fumble and three passes defended.
