The Chiefs and safety Daniel Sorensen agreed to a $16 million, four-year contract that keeps the restricted free agent off the market, a person with knowledge of the deal told The Associated Press. The deal includes $8 million guaranteed and more than $2 million in incentives, according to the person, who spoke Saturday on condition of anonymity because Sorensen must still pass a physical. Kansas City put a second-round tender on Sorensen this week, which meant he could have tested the market.
Eric Berry sat behind a small table in the Chiefs training complex, flanked by his parents, and made the kind of admission that probably made general manager John Dorsey wonder. ''Someone could have offered me more money somewhere else, and they could have offered me less here, and it wouldn't have balanced out,'' Berry said. The team that drafted Berry in the first round seven years ago signed him to a $78 million, six-year deal to make him the NFL's highest-paid safety.
The Chiefs declined to use the franchise tag on defensive tackle Dontari Poe on Wednesday, which means the two-time Pro Bowl selection could become a free agent for the first time next week. Chiefs coach Andy Reid said at the NFL scouting combine in Indianapolis that general manager John Dorsey has been in communication with Poe's representatives. The Chiefs got some help Wednesday when the NFL Players Association announced the salary cap will increase by $12 million to $167 million next season.
CLEVELAND (AP) -- Punter Britton Colquitt has agreed to a four-year contract extension with the Cleveland Browns.
The Chiefs have released four-time Pro Bowl running back Jamaal Charles, clearing more than $6 million in salary cap space, a person familiar with the move tells The Associated Press. Charles missed the start of last season after having surgery to repair a second torn ACL. The Chiefs needed to release Charles to create salary cap space to sign safety Eric Berry and guard Laurent Duvernay-Tardif to contract extensions.
The Chiefs are releasing their all-time leading rusher, Jamaal Charles. On the same day they signed one franchise standout to a multi-year deal, the Kansas City Chiefs are parting ways with another franchise standout: Jamaal Charles. Charles was set to make $3.75 million in base salary this year, plus roster and workout bonuses totaling $2.44 million.
