Chiefs Extend OL Cam Irving’s contract

General Manager Brett Veach signed offensive lineman Cameron Irving to a two-year contract extension on September 4.

Irving had one season remaining on his existing deal and with the extension, he could make up to $15.7 million over the next three seasons depending on playing time according to a source reported by Ian Rapoport on twitter.

The former first round pick will also get $6.45 million in guarantees, making him the highest paid swing O-linemen in the NFL.

Irving spent most of his time during the preseason and training camp as the starting left guard for the Chiefs but lost the job according to the team’s official depth chart. Instead, Andrew Wylie is listed as the starter at left guard and Irving will play in a backup role as a swing tackle.

Irving was drafted in the first round of the 2015 draft by the Browns and was shipped to Kansas City on August 30, 2017 after being less than an impact for Cleveland.
