Chiefs news for 14 June 2019
The Chiefs and Butker agreed to terms of a five-year contract extension, he confirmed Thursday on Twitter. The deal is worth about $20 million, a source confirmed to ESPN, and the $4 million annual average on the extension would tie him for eighth among the league’s highest-paid kickers.
“We told them we’re not going backwards when we get to training camp,” Mahomes said. “When you’re at training camp you’re adding on and getting better every single day. You don’t want to lose all the stuff you’ve work for in OTAs and minicamp.
“So go out and enjoy the break but make sure you come back ready to go the first day.”
The Kansas City Chiefs added former Jets tight end and Belmar native, Neal Sterling, to their roster on Thursday.
Sterling produced six catches for 47 receiving yards last season. He appeared in only five games but made four starts for the Jets. Sterling initially joined the Jets in 2017 but he was cut midway through that season and eventually signed with the Chiefs’ practice squad.

“Being used to the program—he was here the whole offseason—and then used to the offense, he was able to play faster,” said Andy Reid to reporters on Thursday. “He’s in great shape and did a heckuva job. He had a nice camp. He got a lot of reps, obviously, and wanted those. Overall, again, I just thought he did a very nice job.”
