Succop Gets New Deal

K Ryan Succop rode the wave of his record-tying 22 consecutive field goals to a new contract with the Chiefs. The five-year deal is worth a reported $14 million according to an ESPN report on Friday.

Succop will get $2 million as a signing bonus and $2 million in 2012 salary and that money is guaranteed.

It’s quite a turnaround in events over three seasons for the University of South Carolina product. He was the last player selected in the 2009 NFL Draft and he’s been the most successful player in the Chiefs disappointing class of choices that year.

He’s turned in his best season this year, hitting 24 of 29 FG attempts, with only one miss inside the 40-yard line. He’s also been 19 for 19 on PAT kicks and his work on kickoffs has been very good.

    Good for him, the only one of the 2009 draft to actually play at a decent level.Still this was his shakiest year. Two blocks are an issue not necessarily his fault.

    This is a good signing for KC. This was agruably Succop’s best of his three year career. With Succop and Colquitt, the Chiefs have one of the better pairs of young kickers in the league.

    Tyson Jackson, another from the 2009 class, has had a solid year.
