Eric Fisher has signed an extension with the Chiefs giving him a deal worth $48 million over the next six years.
Fisher’s current contract is worth $15 million over the next two years after which the newly agreed upon deal, which includes $40 million in guaranteed money, will kick in.
The offensive lineman was drafted first overall by the Chiefs in the 2013 draft who moved him to right tackle for his first year with the team before he was returned to his college position on the left side of the line the following season.
ProFootballTalk reports the structure of the deal will give the 25-year-old lineman $28.5 million in guaranteed money next March while the remaining $11.5 million will be part of an injury guarantee.
Fisher is part of a projected starting line for Kansas City that also includes Jeff Allen, Mitch Morse, Laurent Duvernay-Tardif and Jah Reid.
