KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Kansas City Chiefs have signed No. 1 overall pick Eric Fisher, ensuring that the big right tackle out of Central Michigan will be in training camp with plenty of time to prepare for the season. The team announced the move Friday without disclosing terms. A person familiar with the situation, speaking on condition of anonymity because terms were confidential, told The Associated Press that the contract will be for five years.

The deal is expected to be in the $22 million range, which would put it on par with the two previous No. 1 picks to have been signed since the NFL instituted a new rookie wage scale with the most recent collective-bargaining agreement.

The team has now signed all eight draft selections from the 2013 draft class.
