Chiefs get largest rookie pool to pay draft picks

ESPN - Chiefs get largest rookie pool to pay draft picks - NFL

According to numerous experts, the Kansas City Chiefs had the best draft. Now, they have to pay for those players.

The Chiefs received the highest rookie pool numbers by the NFL, a source said on Wednesday. With 12 draft choices -- two first-rounders taken in the top 15 -- the Chiefs have a rookie pool of $8,221,790, tops in the league. Not only do they have two first-rounders to sign, but they have a second and three thirds.

Even though agents and teams get around the rookie pool with contract escalators, post first-year option bonuses and one-time incentives, the rookie pool was created to somehow slot the signings of draft choices by the position they were selected. Each selection in the draft is given a value, which is a predetermined cap number. All rookies, including undrafted rookies, have to fit within the assigned rookie pool.

Re: Chiefs get largest rookie pool to pay draft picks

we won't even need trickery with our picks i don't think. 3 guys at ~1mill each and some min deals more or less. surprised we got 4.5mill.

i mean, JAX had a top ten pick and they get less than us.
