Chiefs re-signed DE Jarvis Jenkins.

Jenkins began last season with the Jets, but was cut midseason and landed in Kansas City. He logged 266 snaps, playing adequate run defense. Jenkins, 29 next month, will have to earn a spot on the Chiefs' 53-man roster this summer.
Mar 22 - 2:58 PM

Chiefs FB Anthony Sherman has agreed to a pay cut.

The Chiefs needed to clear cap room for Bennie Logan. Sherman's base salary was lowered from $1.55 million to $1.1 million while his per-game bonuses were reduced from $12,500 to $6,250. The restructure saves Kansas City roughly $550,000 in cap space.

Chiefs ILB Derrick Johnson has agreed to a pay cut.

So has teammate Anthony Sherman. The Chiefs will use the savings to sign Bennie Logan. Johnson's contract originally called for a $4.75 million base salary in 2017 with $1 million available in per-game bonuses. With the pay cut, he'll now earn a $1 million base salary while also receiving a $1 million signing bonus. The move saves Kansas City $4.25 million in cap space.
Mar 17 - 9:36 AM

Chiefs signed S Marqueston Huff, formerly of the Ravens.

Huff was a deep reserve for the Ravens last season after being claimed off waivers from the Jaguars. He will try to carve out a role on special teams in Kansas City.
Mar 16 - 5:21 PM

Ravens withdrew restricted free agent tenders from S Marqueston Huff and CB Jumal Rolle.

Both were given original-round tenders, but they are now unrestricted free agents. Considering he played just 33 snaps on defense in 11 games after being picked up off waivers from the Jaguars, it was surprising Huff was offered the tender in the first place. The moves create $3.4 million in cap space.
Mar 13 - 6:04 PM

Chiefs signed DT Bennie Logan, formerly of the Eagles, to a one-year, $8-million contract.

Logan's addition means free agent Dontari Poe is likely to walk. Logan can slide right in at nose tackle. He's a downgrade, but not a particularly steep one. The move could end up being a wash for Kansas City, one that saves money.
Mar 13 - 3:23 PM

Chiefs signed S Daniel Sorensen to a four-year, $16 million extension through 2020.

NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reports almost half of the deal is guaranteed and another $2 million is available via incentives. It is a good contract for a player who had primarily been a special teamer before taking on a bigger defensive role last season. Sorensen just turned 27.
Mar 11 - 8:19 AM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports free agent DT Bennie Logan is visiting the Redskins Friday night and Saturday.

The Eagles are likely to let Logan walk, but it is not because of a lack of interest. Logan is a quality run defender who would be a good addition for Washington.
Mar 10 - 9:34 PM

The Chiefs are working on an extension for restricted free agent S Daniel Sorensen.

The Chiefs gave Sorensen a second-round tender, but can spread out his cap hit on a multi-year deal. He should return in a hybrid safety/linebacker role after playing 544 snaps last season. 27-year-old Sorensen shouldn't cost much to extend.
Mar 10 - 5:05 PM

Chiefs re-signed OL Mike Person.

Person struggled as a 14-game starter in Atlanta two years ago, but the Chiefs value his position flexibility. He is capable of playing four spots on the line.
Mar 10 - 4:18 PM

Chiefs tendered restricted free agent Albert Wilson at the original-round level.

The tender will be worth $1.797 million. Originally an undrafted free agent, the Chiefs will get nothing in return if they decline to match an offer sheet, but it seems unlikely Wilson generates much interest. Wilson has 82 catches for 990 yards and four touchdowns in three seasons with the Chiefs.
Mar 9 - 11:42 AM

Chiefs extended an original-pick tender to restricted free agent K Cairo Santos.

Santos won the Chiefs' kicker job as an UDFA in 2014. If he plays on the tender, he'll earn $1.797 million in 2017. Santos made a career-high 88.6 percent of his field goals last season and nailed 36-of-39 extra points.
Mar 8 - 10:47 AM

Chiefs TE Demetrius Harris was arrested and charged with felony possession of marijuana and paraphernalia in Bates County, Mo. on Monday.

No other details are known, but Harris was booked on Monday afternoon and has already been released from jail. The former basketball player at UW-Milwaukee appeared in all 16 games last season, catching a career-best 17 passes for 123 yards and a score. Harris signed a three-year deal last January.
Mar 8 - 9:48 AM

Ravens tendered restricted free agent S Marqueston Huff at the original-round leve.

It's very surprising, as Huff played just 33 snaps on defense in 11 games after being signed off the Jaguars' practice squad. He's not typically the kind of player who would get a $1.797 million tender. Perhaps the Ravens, who must love Huff on special teams, are hoping to work out a 2-3 year deal.
Mar 7 - 7:43 PM

Chiefs tendered restricted free agent S Daniel Sorensen at the second-round level.

The tender is worth $2.746 million and should ensure Sorensen is back in Kansas City. Sorensen played 544 snaps last season, the third most for a Chiefs safety behind Eric Berry and Ron Parker. He operated in a bit of a hybrid safety/linebacker role and also contributes on special teams.
