Chiefs and Mitchell Schwartz Agree to 1 Year Extension

 61 replies

The Kansas City Chiefs and Mitchell Schwartz have agreed to a 1 year contract extension keeping him in the fold through 2021.

While this was not the extension we were expecting, Schwartz has been a solid right tackle and extending him through 2021 is the right call. Terms have not yet been disclosed but we will update the post once they become available.

Updates:

Contract details have finally been released. It seems like a restructure with a year added on at the end and the first 2 years fully guaranteed.

One of the top O-Lineman in the league. Great move.

He’ll be 34 when the contract comes up again so this gets us through his best years. To put this in perspective, Roaf retired at age 36.

Hopefully our best WR doesn’t get locked up too.

I’ll see myself out.

I hope Mitchell Schwartz retires a Chief, and not by way of a 1 day contract.

Am I an idiot, or is this more of a restructure than an extension? It sounds like they’re changing how his money works these next two years as well.

Anthony Stratton

Both. It adds a year so an extension.

workingmansdead

Both? So he’s an idiot and it’s a restructure? 😉

Tony Sommer

This is true.

Welcome AG, I finally made my way over from the other site….

Smart move here by the Chiefs, Schwartz is locked up until he is 33 and we have 3 years now to find his replacement. (not entirely sure when OL start falling off but 33 seems like a good number

Druful

Yeah, you see a number of OL that retire around 34 or 35. Seems like a good decision for both.

A 1 year extension is probably just being done to free up money for another move.
Chris Jones come on down.

Chief-Blinders-On

That’s what I was saying in my other post thread.

But how sweet is it that we’re going to have one of the best tackles in the game for another season!

Awesome!

Fish isn’t horrible, but he does save 10 million if we cut him next season, I could see us replacing him after this year

Tristan Wirfs please

Chief-Blinders-On

Fish is making 13 million plus this season.

He’s better than the fans advertise him. But that’s a lot of money.

I think the Chiefs will extend him. Because they don’t really seem to be grooming a replacement. Hopefully it will a financially reasonable extension.

If they do cut him. What do you think they’ll do at left tackle?

Anthony Stratton

Better add Fish to your list!

Chief-Blinders-On

I don’t know. That’s a pretty big Fish to fry. Or some other more clever pun…

You got it!

Fish is the 10th highest paid LT both this year and next, but unless you’re getting a cheap good rookie, you’d probably lose money cutting him. Average cap hit this year is about 9-10 Mil plus the 3 mil in dead for fish and it’s a wash

CWil03

Eventually we are going to have to cut our losses somewhere. Mahomes more than likely gets a big deal next year and we do have a nice group of OL to choose from. Not saying it is the right decision, but Fisher is a guy that I can see them saving money on if they need too.

Mitko

I’m saying unless they have a cheap rookie contract guy, with Fisher’s dead money and the going rate of Average LTs you won’t save money by cutting Fish and picking up someone new

I could see them moving Schwartz over there and letting Erving play RT, Ryan Hunter (UDFA in 2018) is another guy that they could decide on letting play depending on how he develops. We have a good group of OL right now.

workingmansdead

Yeah, definitely seems like a cap maneuver.
