    The first overall pick was one of the last first-round picks to agree to terms. *But it’s better late than never, especially when it’s not really late. Per a league source, the Chiefs and tackle Eric Fisher have struck a deal. We’re told he’s heading to camp, where he will sign the contract and then… Read more…

    There is an optional 5th year. If Fisher lives up to potential, they'll more than likely resign him to a new deal.

    This is good news. Four years is a good amount of time, figure out what we have with him, and a great opportunity for him to earn a bigger paycheck down the road.

    Although he is getting a kings ransom (not surprising for the number one pick), the deal is very cap friendly. We are currently 605k over the cap (http://www.spotrac.com/nfl/kansas-city-chiefs/cap-hit/). I imagine as people get cut that should sort itself out by the time the season starts. Then again, I don't even know what the consequence is to being slightly over the cap.

    The 98 donks would say there is no penalty for violating the salary cap.

    You got that right. The '97 and '98 Donks were way over the salary cap. The Chiefs will be under it when they get to the final 53 man roster.

    If the Chiefs are to become SB champions again, I want it be outright -- something that cannot be truthfully said for the '97 and '98 Donks as they had those given to them by the league office.
