The Kansas City Chiefs have extended the contract of LB Andy Studebaker, according to Adam Caplan.
Terms of the deal were not immediately known. Studebaker was signed through 2010 and carried a base salary of $470,000.
Studebaker, who was selected in the 2008 NFL Draft by the Philadelphia Eagles, was waived by Philadelphia in September of 2008. He signed with Philadelphia’s practice squad a short time afterwards. The Chiefs signed him off Philadelphia’s practice squad to their active roster later that month.
We can only hope that this is the beginning of the Chiefs locking up some of their younger talent. Studebaker is a much more affordable option than Tamba Hali, Brandon Flowers and Brandon Carr, but they all need to be extended sooner rather than later.
After watching the “Summer of Revis”, it’s refreshing to see a kid playing his tail off just to keep getting better and have him get rewarded properly for it.
