A former Mr. Irrelevant just became a lot more relevant -- and richer.
Kansas City signed kicker Ryan Succop to a five year, $14 million extension, according to an NFL source. The deal includes a $2 million signing bonus and $2 million in guaranteed salary for 2012.
Succop can max it out at $14.675 million if he is voted to the pro bowl and the Chiefs make the playoffs every season.
Succop, the last selection in the 2009 draft out of South Carolina, has connected on 69 of his 84 career field goal attempts (82.1 percent).
