Eric Fisher signs deal with Chiefs, reports to training camp

Posted: Updated:
ST. JOSEPH, MO (KCTV) -

The Kansas City Chiefs and their top draft pick, Eric Fisher, have agreed to a long-term contract.

Fisher, 22, has signed his new contract and is at training camp in St. Joseph. Once Fisher completes all the NFL requirements, he will be cleared to practice, which could come as soon as this afternoon.

Training camp began this week and Friday is the first day for all players to be present.

By virtue of their 2-14 record, the Chiefs had the first pick in the NFL draft in April. They chose Fisher, an offensive lineman who played at Central Michigan.

The deal is $22 million for four years with an option for a fifth year. This contract would be on par with the two previous No. 1 picks to have been signed since the NFL instituted a new rookie wage scale with the most recent collective-bargaining agreement.

The Chiefs have signed all their eight draft picks.

Wide receiver Dwayne Bowe is in camp and doing yoga and stretching, but has a chest virus that stopped him from practicing.
