The Chiefs announced Thursday afternoon that they had agreed on a four-year, $2,470,000 contract with third-round draft choice TE Tony Moeaki.
The signing has three of the team’s seven draft choices under contract. The NFL grapevine says that the Chiefs will announce a deal next with their other third-round choice, C/G Jon Asamoah.
Moeaki’s deal includes $700,000 in guaranteed money and then yearly minimum salaries. There is an escalator provision that could increase the value of the fourth and final year.
With Moeaki joining fifth-round picks Kendrick Lewis and Cameron Sheffield and Asamoah on the brink, that leaves first-rounder S Eric Berry and second-round choices WR Dexter McCluster and CB Javier Arenas. As of Thursday afternoon no first round draft choice deals have been announced and there has been just one second-round contract signed. Update: Thursday evening the Cowboys announced a contract agreement with 1st-round choice WR Dez Bryant.
