Chiefs Extend Another One Of Their Own

The Kansas City Chiefs have signed a number of their young players to contract extensions over the last year and a half including K Ryan Succop and LB Brandon Siler in the last week.

We can now add another name to the list -- LB Cory Greenwood. Brian McIntyre reported this morning (and I can separately confirm) that the Chiefs signed him to a four-year extension worth $2.75 million. Check out the details of the contract here.

Greenwood was originally the third overall pick in the 2010 CFL draft before deciding to go the NFL route and sign with the Chiefs as an undrafted free agent. He's been active in every game the last two years and is among the team leaders in special teams tackles.

The Chiefs have really done a pretty good job of extending some of their own guys since last season -- Jamaal Charles, Derrick Johnson and Tamba Hali, to name a few.

But...we're still waiting for the Chiefs to reel in the two big fish this offseason -- Dwayne Bowe and Brandon Carr.
