    Tyson Jackson alters contract to stay with Chiefs

    Posted by Josh Alper on March 5, 2013, 6:32 PM EST
    APWhen perusing a list of the most outlandish cap numbers around the league at the start of the offseason, it was hard not to focus on the $17.5 million figure held by Chiefs defensive end Tyson Jackson.
    Jackson, the third overall pick in the 2009 draft, has struggled as a pass rusher (five sacks in 59 career games) and added little to a run defense that has regularly ranked near the bottom of the league in his four years in Kansas City. There aren’t a ton of defensive ends whose production makes it easy to swallow that cap number, to say nothing of a $14.72 million salary, and Jackson was not one of them.
    So it’s no surprise that Bill Williamson of ESPN.com reports that Jackson “redid” his contract in order to remain with the team. He was on the fast track to being released if he didn’t agree to cut those gargantuan numbers down and that’s just what he’s done. There are no specifics on the new figures, but there was such a large gap between his salary and his actual value that we’d expect a pretty significant alteration.
    With Jackson remaining in the fold, the Chiefs will only have to concentrate on replacing one starting defensive end this offseason. Glenn Dorsey is a free agent and the fact that he shares a last name with the team’s new general manager isn’t expected to keep him in town.

    He is due $9.8M and if we cut him we still own him $4.5M. my source So if he will restructure for under $5M we might as well keep him this year.

    This move was very important, Jackson is the best 5 tech DE on roster, and not easily replaceable. One year deal, it tells me that we will be drafting 2 DE in a 3-4 defense. Bailey haven't worked out the way was expected, Pitoitua isn't very good at 5 tech and Smith is a role player. Toribio and Powe had played DE for a few plays during last season, but I'm not sold on them as DE's. Dorsey is good enough but will be overpaid probably by Dallas or someone else.
    The best Chilean fan.

    Hats off to Tyson Jackson on this one. It shows that he cares about a team player for the Chiefs sake. He may never live up to his #3 overall draft status, but he's rightfully earned the respect of all Chiefs fans with this move. Plus, he should have already have enough dollars stashed away in a bank somewhere from what he's already been paid thus far.

    Two thumbs up, TJ and give it your best in 2013.
