Report: Tyson Jackson's Contract Biggest in Chiefs History

So says Nick Wright from 610 Sports:

610 learns that the deal with DE Tyson Jackson will make him highest paid Chief in team history (on an annual basis).

The highest deal in team history would top the $28 million guaranteed to Kansas City Chiefs QB Matt Cassel last month. But...I'm not sure how that "on annual basis" caveat in the 610 Sports quote is going to settle out. Cassel's contract was a six-year deal so I'm guessing that's what they mean.

We're speculating that the deal is somewhere between $28-30 million guaranteed, which is just slightly less than the #2 overall pick Jason Smith received from the Rams.

We'll be updating this post with info as we get it.
