According to Adam Caplan, the Kansas City Chiefs have agreed to a three-year deal with former Indianapolis Colts WR Donnie Avery.

The deal, according to the report, is worth $11 million over course of the three years.

Though we don’t know the exact terms of the deal, $11 million broken up evenly that would give Avery around $3.6 million a year.

This is a pretty solid contract. If Avery can at the very least, replace some of the production the Chiefs got from Steve Breaston back in 2010, then this is a worthy investment.

I do have concerns about Avery’s hands but his speed should hep to keep defenses honest, even if Alex Smith’s arm doesn’t.

What do you think, Addicts? A lot of folks think the Chiefs are overpaying free agents. Did GM John Dorsey spend too much on Avery?
