Of course they did.
Adam Teicher of the Kansas City Star is reporting via Twitter that Chiefs OT Jared Gaither is making a base salary of $685,000 this season. Teicher also reports that the team signed Gaither to a one-year deal.
Not bad for a player that could end up starting at one of the tackle positions.
As Teicher points out in his tweet, Gaither will be a huge bargain if he pans out. He also won’t suck the team dry of cap room if he doesn’t.
Scott Pioli continues to show he is a good bargain hunter. Let’s just hope his bargains bring in a big return in 2011.
