ST. JOSEPH, Mo. (AP) – A person familiar with the situation tells The Associated Press the Kansas City Chiefs have agreed to terms on a five-year deal with No. 1 overall pick Eric Fisher. The person spoke Friday on condition of anonymity because the team has not announced the signing.
Fisher was expected to report to training camp Friday in St. Joseph, Mo., in time for the first full-squad workout. The right tackle missed three days of practice earlier this week that involved his fellow rookies, quarterbacks and selected veterans.
Fisher and fellow offensive tackle Luke Joeckel were considered the top linemen available in the draft. The Chiefs opted to go with Fisher with the first pick, and he will play on the right side opposite veteran left tackle Branden Albert.
