Chiefs sign OL Erving to two-year extension

The Kansas City Chiefs signed offensive lineman Cameron Erving to an extension on Tuesday, the team announced.

Terms were not announced, but multiple reports say it is a two-year extension worth up to $15.7 million based on playing-time incentives and includes $6.45 million guaranteed.

Erving, a first-round pick of the Cleveland Browns in 2015, was entering the final year of his contract after his fifth-year option was declined and was set to make $1.72 million this year.

The 26-year-old has played in 42 games (21 starts) through three seasons, seeing time at all five positions up front. He saw action in 13 games (four starts) in his first year with the Chiefs last season, playing right guard and left tackle, after being acquired for a fifth-round pick last August.

The Chiefs have several other offensive linemen on lucrative contracts, including left tackle Eric Fisher (entering first year of four-year, $48 million extension), right tackle Mitchell Schwartz (third year of five-year, $33 million deal) and right guard Laurent Duvernay-Tardif (first year of five-year, $42.4 million extension).

Center Mitch Morse, who has started 38 games since being drafted in the second round in 2015, is entering the final year of his rookie contract.
