The Kansas City Chiefs have signed defensive end Tyson Jackson, the team's first-round draft pick and the third player taken overall in the NFL draft.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed Friday. But a source told ESPN.com's John Clayton that the two sides had been working on a deal worth $57 million over five years, with $31 million guaranteed.
Jackson was at Chiefs camp in River Falls, Wis., and headed to the practice field to take the team's conditioning test.

Jackson, from LSU, is expected to help an anemic Chiefs pass rush that set the all-time NFL record for fewest sacks last season, with 10. Jackson had 18 sacks and 122 tackles in 53 games at LSU.

This is why the owners want to renegotiate the Agreement. Bowlen spoke of the need to control the rookie deals. We just might see the League go to the mat over making changes in the rookie compensation deals.

The fact that it's KC means I really don't give a shat. But because it can affect the rookie payouts in future years bothers me. I think the owners are nuts to pay that kind of money, and this seems to me to be the reason why Crabtree is holding out. I hope the 49ers hang on and let him stew for awhile.

I would not mind if the Broncos held out on Morino if he was asking for something in that ball park. Not worth it.......

Where is the seat at the CBA table representing the fans?

We are like the American Indians. so much power and complete lack of ability to organize, effect change and REDUCE the costs to attend a game.

Athletes play for a corporate NFL teams that realizes billions annually why not ask for a reality check for NFL teams/owners as well.

Remember an NFL career on average only 4-8 years....so the players gotta make the money while they can. Whereas the owners will continue to rake in 100's of millions if not billions over 20 to 30 years.

What is ridiculous about the rookie contracts is that Jackson drafted at #3 gets 31 million guaranteed, while Moreno drafted 9 slots later gets 13 million guaranteed. It is plain nuts. Drafting in the top ten is more of a curse that anything as if you don't hit on the prospect it puts you in financial burden to go out and get quality free agents in the off season. Rookie contract caps should be apart of the next CBA.

He sucks as a RDE.

In a 4-3 scheme as a complementary pass rusher, he's an above average player.

Jackson won't be raping anybody. He went in the first round because he's a solid DE who can really hold his own against the run. He's not an elite pass rusher by any means. The Chiefs were stupid enough to pick him at #3 and he's not even a pass rusher, now they proved they are just as stupid by giving him this kinda money. Man, the Chiefs got alot of money tied up in that Dline, which so far aint done jack.

This. Bolt fans were expecting him to fall down into their territory and most of them didn't even want to take him there. This will be a large bust I am pretty sure.

That's just brutal. The top fifteen and especially the top five are the biggest joke in sports. They need to kill that. Jackson is a "safe" choice for a team trying to rebuild that will probably never live up to the money he's getting even if he pans out like he is supposed to.

ROFL!

So what else should he have done? Kept a TE that wanted out? Getting a 2nd round pick for any 30+ year old TE that is at the end of his career is a steal.

And Pioli didn't alienate Waters. Waters was mad at Haley's comment to him that "22 players off the street could win 2 games". It was very obvious that Pioli didn't want to put up with a whiny player so he didn't go to KC to hear him complain. Instead he decided to get ready for the draft.

Apparently the no-nonsense approach is working because Waters is in camp and not complaining anymore.

this is why even if we tank this year I am glad we wont have a top pick(unless the Bears tank)

It is getting to the point where it is becoming a punishment instead of a gift to have these high picks.

There really is no way Jackson can live up to his contract unless he becomes even better than Richard Seymore

That's correct to the extent neither are pass rushers, nor is Aaron Curry, whom the Seahawks just signed.

Orakpo and Maybin were the sack guys, and they both went after Jackson, Curry and Ayers.

I think you guys are missing something. There isn't one player in the entire draft worth the kind of money Jackson got. The Chiefs and every team drafting that high were hostages to this arcane system were each slot gets a 10% increase over the previous season.

Hell, it's not even confined to the draft look at the ridiculous contracts of Cassel, Manning, R. White, Suggs, Haynesworth this past season. It is unsustainable. The league is not growing at the rate of these contracts.
