Chiefs Ink Moeaki; Asamoah Next
The Chiefs announced Thursday afternoon that they had agreed on a four-year, $2,470,000 contract with third-round draft choice TE Tony Moeaki.
The signing has three of the team’s seven draft choices under contract. The NFL grapevine says that the Chiefs will announce a deal next with their other third-round choice, C/G Jon Asamoah.
Moeaki’s deal includes $700,000 in guaranteed money and then yearly minimum salaries. There is an escalator provision that could increase the value of the fourth and final year.
With Moeaki joining fifth-round picks Kendrick Lewis and Cameron Sheffield and Asamoah on the brink, that leaves first-rounder S Eric Berry and second-round choices WR Dexter McCluster and CB Javier Arenas. As of Thursday afternoon no first round draft choice deals have been announced and there has been just one second-round contract signed. Update: Thursday evening the Cowboys announced a contract agreement with 1st-round choice WR Dez Bryant.
Everyone needs to be in camp on time, and it seems they’re starting to knock out the signings. I’ve been looking around on KCChiefs.com for the depth chart, and it seems they have removed it; probably getting it ready for the start of camp. I can’t wait!
