I did NOT expect this at all. The Kansas City Chiefs are on the verge of agreeing to a 5-year contract with former Browns OT Mitch Schwartz. This according to reports from ESPN and NFL Network.
I'm told OT Mitchell Schwartz has agreed in principle to a deal with the #Chiefs.— Rand Getlin (@Rand_Getlin) March 9, 2016
Kansas City is finalizing a 5-year deal with soon-to-be former Browns OT Mitchell Schwartz, from @PatMcManamon and me.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) March 9, 2016
All I can say is wow, wow, wow. I did not think this was coming at all. This comes a few hours after the Chiefs lost G Jeff Allen to a $7 million per year deal in Houston.
Schwartz is the Schwartz you think it is - former Chief Geoff Schwartz's brother. He was one of the top free agent offensive tackles available, which was a big need for the Chiefs. This is also one of the biggest investments into the o-line they've made so far. My initial thought without seeing the money is that this is a great move. I'm surprised (in a good way) they made such a big move.
So proud of my brother, @MitchSchwartz72 on his deal with the @Chiefs! Went through some nonsense today, and ended up in a great spot. @NFL— Geoff Schwartz (@geoffschwartz) March 9, 2016
I gotta know, who here is opposed to adding Geoff and giving the Schwartz brothers the right side of the line?
