The Kansas City Chiefs were one of several teams that rolled back the salaries of employees during the lockout to try and save money. However, according to multiple reports, the team has decided to restore that money, plus a 3% raise.
The raise would apply to everyone and be retroactive to March.
Chiefs employees, including head coach Todd Haley and general manager Scott Pioli, had their salaries reduced up to 10 percent after the lockout started in March.
There was no need for Clark Hunt to cut salaries in the first place, so it’s hard to give the team credit for this move, but adding a raise is worth noting. Simply restoring the money retroactively would have been enough for most people.
After the actual news that we will have football as scheduled, this is the perfect way to close the book on the lockout.
