The Kansas City Chiefs remained busy on Tuesday. According to ESPN's Bill Williamson, Kansas City defensive end Tyson Jackson agreed to restructure his contract, and will remain with the Chiefs in 2013.
Prior to restructuring, Jackson was set to have a base salary of $14.7 million, and would cost the Chiefs $17.4 million against the salary cap. Jackson restructured his contract last April as well, in a move that saved Kansas City money against the 2012 cap.
Kansas City selected Jackson with the No. 3 overall pick of the 2009 NFL Draft. Jackson held out of his first training camp, and eventually signed a five-year contract worth over $57 million.
Through his first four seasons with the Chiefs, Jackson has recorded just 167 tackles and five career sacks. Jackson hasn't forced or recovered a fumble yet in his professional career.
Jackson was an impact player while at LSU. and was named to the second team All-SEC on two occasions. Jackson ended his four-year LSU career with 121 tackles and 17 sacks, with 19 pass deflections.
So far, his college success hasn't translated to the NFL -- but the Chiefs aren't quite ready to give up on the former LSU standout.
