Chiefs signed FB Anthony Sherman to a three-year contract extension through 2017.
Sherman, 26 next month, was in the final year of his rookie deal. After being acquired from the Cardinals in May of 2013, has far-and-away been the game's best lead blocker. He paved the way for Jamaal Charles' 1,287-yard season in 2013. Sherman also caught 18 balls out of the backfield last season. Nov 5 - 12:15 PM

Chiefs acquired FB Anthony Sherman from the Cardinals.

New Cards head coach Bruce Arians has no room for plodding fullbacks in his aggressive, vertical offense. So Sherman heads to Andy Reid's West Coast scheme as Jamaal Charles' lead blocker. The 2011 fifth-rounder graded out 20th among 25 qualifying fullbacks in Pro Football Focus' rankings last season.

New coach Bruce Arians said he's "not a fullback guy."

"If you are a defensive coordinator and I send a fullback in and take out a tight end, I will get your best call for that," Arians said. "If I have two tight ends, and you don't know if one will play fullback or one could split out wide, you're going to give me a down-and-distance (defensive) call." That's bad news for Anthony Sherman, Cardinals' lead blocker for the last two seasons.

Cardinals selected Connecticut FB Anthony Sherman with the No. 136 overall pick in the 2011 NFL draft.

Sherman could be the Cardinals' starting fullback in 2011, as 2010 starter Reagan Maui'a is an unrestricted free agent. However, he is more athletic than strong, and if Arizona does decide to go with him in Week 1, he may have to do some bulking up. Sherman does have decent pass-catching ability, making him a possibility for short-yardage and goal-line situations.
