NFP: Chiefs, Tyson Jackson Getting "Closer"

It feels like the NFL Draft, doesn't it?  He said, she said when it comes to these rookie contract signings.  Anyway, the latest from Brad Biggs of the National Football Post is that the Kansas City Chiefs and third overall pick Tyson Jackson are "getting closer" to an agreement.

Per Biggs:

Crabtree isn’t the only Parker client missing camp. Defensive end Tyson Jackson, selected third by Kansas City, has yet to report to River Falls, Wis., but a source with knowledge of the situation said late Sunday night that the sides were ``closer.’’

An agreement could come soon.

Biggs is a Chicago Sun-Times reporter so the Haley connection is there as the head coach used to work for the Bears.  He also covered Cedric Benson's 2005 holdout, when the rookie was represented by Jackson's agent Eugene Parker.

The National Football Post's Michael Lombardi has been spot on with several reports regarding the Chiefs so we'll have to wait this one out.

Upon his arrival at Chiefs training camp last Thursday, rookie DE Alex Magee said Jackson told him he was getting close to an agreement.  Yesterday, 610 Sports' Nick Wright reported that the Jackson camp said the Chiefs were waiting on fourth overall pick Aaron Curry to do a deal first.
