Mitchell Schwartz signs one-year deal with Chiefs

The right tackle in the NFL earned a cash back.
The Kansas City Chiefs have signed offensive tackle Mitchell Schwartz into a yearlong expansion, representative Mike McCartney declared Wednesday. The news was made by the team.
The extension is worth $11.255 million, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported, per a source informed, making him the second-highest paid directly address.
Schwartz had two years left on the five-year, $33 million contract that he signed with the Chiefs at 2016 and has been set to make $6 million in base wages in 2019 and 2020. The one-year extension keeps him in K.C. throughout the 2021 effort.

The 30-year-old is the leading right handle and among the best blockers at the NFL of that the league. Pro Football Focus graded Schwartz as their No. 4 total tackle in 2018. Boasting feet that are leading and stone palms, Schwartz may be a bull in the run game and is a wall in pass defense.
During his first seven seasons, Schwartz has been an image of health, never missing a beginning in 112 regular-season games. In fact, he never misses a play, exceeding the 7,000 career that is consecutive snaps markers in November of 2018. Following four seasons with the Cleveland Browns, the Chiefs swiped the top right handle in 2016. The 6.6 million yearly average salary before the contract expansion is pittance compared to what other (lesser) players are currently making. Two right-wing who signed this offseason are making nearly double: Trent Brown ($16.5 million per), Ja’Wuan James ($12.75 million). Schwartz was also making nearly half a year of exactly what teammate Eric Fisher earns ($12 million).
Schwartz deserved a pay bulge, and the Chiefs agreed while locking down a key player for an addition season. Assessing Patrick Mahomes is vital for K.C., therefore keeping one of the finest in the league joyful and about longer is very good organization.
