The Kansas City Chiefs are just about three weeks away from the start of training camp and according to a report from the National Football Post, KC has yet to begin negotiations with No. 1 overall draft pick, OT Eric Fisher.

From NFP:

"On the subject of contracts, Kansas City has yet to begin substantive negotiations with tackle Eric Fisher, the top pick in the draft. But the two sides should start serious bargaining in the next week or so."

Hmmm. This isn’t alarming but I do find it a bit curious. The new rookie wage scale included in the latest CBA makes rookie contract holdouts pretty much a thing of the past.

Second overall pick, Luke Joeckel is already signed so it stands to reason that Fisher would be following soon after.

The fact that there is a report that the Chiefs haven’t even really begun to negotiate probably signals that GM John Doesey doesn’t foresee any problems getting a deal done.

The Chiefs have plenty of time to iron out Fisher’s contract so he will almost certainly be in camp on time.

What do you think, Addicts? Are you worried that the Chiefs haven’t started negotiating with Fisher?
