The Chiefs and offensive lineman Cam Erving reached a deal Tuesday to keep him with the team through the 2020 season.
Erving, a former first-round pick, 19th overall, of the Cleveland Browns, received a three-year contract extension from the Chiefs. It will wipe out the final season of his rookie contract, which had him slated to earn $1.7 million in base salary this year.
He’ll now earn $10 million over the next three seasons, and the deal includes incentives that could push his compensation higher, a source told The Star.
A 6-foot-5, 313-pound former standout at Florida State, Erving was selected one pick after former Chiefs All-Pro cornerback Marcus Peters. Erving spent two seasons with Cleveland before the Chiefs acquired him in a trade late last August for a 2018 fifth-round draft pick.
