The Chiefs renegotiated the contract of guard Andrew Wylie to guarantee him a roster space for the year and create a much needed $1.2 million in cap space. Wylie, who was a restricted free agent this offseason, agreed to a new contract that will guarantee his $920,000 salary for the 2021 season. Wylie will still be a free agent after the season.
The Chiefs now have in the ballpark of $3 million in salary cap room for the year. That number is inclusive of their Practice Squad additions so this should be enough for them to function during the year without the need for any more contract modifications.
