Report: Chiefs, 5th Round Pick Cameron Sheffield Agree To Terms

New, comments

Citing a league source, Brian McIntyre of Mac's Football Blog reports the Chiefs have agreed to terms with fifth round pick Cameron Sheffield.

Per McIntyre, the deal runs four years -- as opposed to the three year deals the Chiefs did last year -- and also includes the roster bonus and not the signing bonus.

Sheffield's contract has a base value of $1.984 million dollars, and includes a fully guaranteed $194,450 roster bonus in lieu of a signing bonus. The maximum value of Sheffield's contract is $2.75 million dollars.

The roster bonus falls in line with what the players before and after him received as signing bonuses.

141. Chicago Bears - Joshua Moore, CB, Kansas State - Signed (4-years, $1.988M; $198,000 signing bonus)
142. Kansas City Chiefs - Cameron Sheffield, LB, Troy
143. Jacksonville Jaguars - Larry Hart, LB, Central Arkansas - Signed (4-years, $1.982M; $192,800 signing bonus)

This would be the second Chiefs draft pick under contract after safety Kendrick Lewis. We'll wait for the Chiefs official confirmation.
