The Kansas City Chiefs have signed the final two picks in their draft class, sixth rounders G Zach Fulton and OT Laurent Duvernay-Tardif. More signings are coming and probably coming soon.
This is the fourth year with the new CBA that makes draft pick signings easier than it was before. There is little negotiation on the total numbers in the deal, which is why Over The Cap already has an estimate of every Chiefs draft pick contract.
These are all four year deals and should total:
LB Dee Ford: $8,158,700
CB Phillip Gaines: $2,819,912
RB De'Anthony Thomas: $2,640,108
QB Aaron Murray: $2,402,424
G Zach Fulton: $2,324,220
OT Laurent Duvernay-Tardif: $2,320,300
ESPN's Adam Teicher has more details on these contracts with guaranteed money and all that.
The total value here is about $20 million. The signing bonuses will be about $5.6 million. That will result in just under $4 million in cap space for the 2014 season.
The signings are coming quicker than ever this year. The Chiefs draft picks are at the facility now (besides those who can't be due to school). Rookie minicamp begins May 24.
What's your prediction on when the Chiefs sign their last draft pick?
