Report: Chiefs, Tyson Jackson Reach Contract Agreement

Update 5:25 PM: Nick Wright of 610 Sports reports it as a FIVE year deal

The Kansas City Chiefs and first round pick Tyson Jackson have agreed to terms according to Brad Biggs of the National Football Post.

(Edit: Do they break every big Chiefs story? Solid source here.)

There's been some interest in the Jackson deal, especially because agent Eugene Parker also represents Michael Crabtree who appears to be primed for a long holdout.

The deal Jason Smith selected 2nd overall by the Rams signed was for $33 million over five years (really, a six year deal that voids to five) with an average of $6.6 million of guaranteed money per year.  That's the number to keep an eye on.

Nick Wright of 610 Sports is also reporting this and characterized it as a "deal in principle" and should be in camp on Friday.

Here's the timeline of the Jackson signing:

  • July 30th: Rams sign Jason Smith; Ceiling set for Chiefs' Jackson
  • July 31st: Fellow rookie Alex Magee says he's talked to Jackson and they're "close" to a deal
  • August 2nd: The Jackson camp tells Nick Wright of 610 Sports that the Chiefs are waiting on the Seahawks to complete a contract with fourth overall pick Aaron Curry
  • August 3rd: Brad Biggs of the National Football Posts the two sides are "getting closer" to a deal
