Chiefs And Ryan Succop Agree To Five-Year Extension

Impressive for a Mr. Irrelevant....

Kansas City Chiefs kicker Ryan Succop just secured a five-year, $14 million extension, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. The deal includes a $2 million signing bonus and $2 million guaranteed salary in 2012.

Succop struggled mightily early this season but rebounded to nearly break a franchise record for consecutive field goals made (21). Unfortunately, Succop had two attempts blocked last week pushing the Chiefs out of the playoffs.

These late season extensions come every once in a while. Teams can treat any increase in 2011 money as a signing bonus and prorated throughout the life of the deal (five years in this case). Without getting too nerdy, let's just say there are cap reasons to extend a player in the final week of the season.

Succop becomes the first (and perhaps only) player from the Chiefs 2009 draft class to receive an extension.
