According to the Kansas City Star, the Chiefs and seventh-round pick Ryan Succop have agreed to terms of a three year contract that the kicker will sign tomorrow morning.
Joel Turner, Succop’s agent, said the sides agreed to terms today, but a Chiefs employee had to leave team headquarters early today, delaying the signing another day. While Turner did not reveal the amount of the deal, reports out of South Carolina reported the contract will be worth $1.2 million.
Succop will be the first player in the Chiefs’ eight pick draft class to sign. He was with the team throughout offseason practice and is expected to compete in training camp with second year player Connor Barth for the Chiefs’ kicking job.
Between Mr. Irrelevant Week and the impending contract, it has been all Succop all the time around here. As I’ve said previously, the competition between Succop and Barth should be a lot of fun to watch in training camp. How many teams can say that this time of year? Hopefully the remaining seven draft picks will sign on the dotted line sooner rather than later.
