Ben Grubbs, Chiefs agree on new four-year deal

Ben Grubbs has a new team and now he has a new contract.

Per a report from Pro Football Talk, Grubbs and the Kansas City Chiefs have agreed on a four-year, $24 million deal. The deal includes $8 million guaranteed, according to the report.

Grubbs, who was officially traded to Kansas City on Friday, had two years left on his five-year, $36 million deal with the Saints. He was set to be paid $6.6 million in 2015 under that old deal and PFT reports that he will be paid $6.6 million under the new deal. I haven't seen the cap breakdown yet but the Chiefs obviously feel they can fit it under the cap.

PFT has a few more details on the trade, which you can read here.

The Chiefs traded a fifth round pick to the Saints for the 31-year old Grubbs. The Chiefs hope Grubbs can be part of the biggest upgrade on the team, which is the offensive line. After adding Grubbs and Paul Fanaika, it's obvious fixing the offensive line was a priority for the Chiefs.
