The Kansas City Chiefs have reportedly signed their first draft pick…well, the first one that we know about.
This comes from Aaron Wilson of Fox Sports:
Chiefs FB Shane Bannon (Yale) agrees to four-year deal with bonus just over $51,000, per a league source.
Bannon, you may remember was the Chiefs’ 7th round draft pick. A FB out of Yale, Bannon was not even on the radar of most scouts. A last second surge , however, got him some attention and the Chiefs took a chance on him.
Not a bad deal for Bannon here. He is likely signed for the rookie minimum but he gets a nice little bonus. If he makes the team, he’ll be a bargain for the Chiefs for four years.
