Another Draft Pick Signs With Chiefs

It’s two down, four to go in the draft choice signing department for the Chiefs.

After getting sixth-round pick guard Zach Fulton locked up on Tuesday, the club’s other sixth-rounder offensive tackle Laurent Duvernay-Tardif from McGill University in Canada agreed to terms on Wednesday.

There were no details on the deal, but draft picks generally sign four-year contracts that start with $2.455 million in base salaries; that’s the total of the minimum salaries for the players over the next four seasons: 2014-$420,000, 2015-$585,000, 2016-$675,000, 2017-$775,000. The only difference in these deals comes in the bonuses, whether signing, workout or other possibilities.

The remaining 2014 choices without contracts are outside linebacker Dee Ford, cornerback Phillip Gaines, running back De’Anthony Thomas and quarterback Aaron Murray.

    Bob; We would love to hear your “assesment” of these 6 guys. Especially Dee Ford. I always have felt a first rounder needs to be a “game changer” and a “difference maker”. If he’s not that then why are we taking him??? Examples that would “qualify” would be Bowe, Albert, Berry. Examples of NOT would be Jackson, Baldwin, Dorsey. Too early for Fisher or Poe yet.
