Chiefs Restructure Deals For OT Eric Fisher & LB Anthony Hitchens


According to Field Yates, the Chiefs restructured the deals for both OT Eric Fisher and LB Anthony Hitchens, converting base salary to a signing bonus for both players. 

The move adds about $10.6 million in cap space to the Chiefs’ books for 2019. 

Fisher, 28, was the No. 1 overall pick back in 2013. He signed a four-year, $63 million extension with $40 million guaranteed back in 2016 and is set to make base salaries of $9.85 million and $8.75 million over the next two seasons.

In 2018, Fisher started all 16 games for the Chiefs at left tackle and was selected to the Pro Bowl. 

Hitchens, 27, is a former fourth-round pick of the Cowboys back in 2014. He signed a five-year, $45 million deal with the Chiefs last year that included $25 million guaranteed.

In 2018, Hitchens appeared in 15 games for the Chiefs and recorded 135 tackles, no sacks and one forced fumble.
