Reports have surfaced that the Kansas City Chiefs are bringing back fullback Anthony Sherman. Sherman, a 2018 Pro-Bowler, is rumored to have signed a one-year contract with the Chiefs for the 2019 season.
Players who have departed in free agency include Allen Bailey, Eric Berry, Justin Houston, Dee Ford, and a handful more. But, the Chiefs seem to want the 30-year-old fullback to help stabilize an offense which came within a mere game of being the AFC representative in Super Bowl LIII last season.
The former UConn Huskie has shown off a tremendous ability not just as a fullback, but also as a go-to-guy with sticky hands and speedy moves. Should one doubt, they need only replay the 2018 Pro Bowl appearance by Sherman.
Sherman has played every game for the Chiefs since being dealt by the Arizona Cardinals to the Chiefs in 2013. The Chiefs general manager at the time, John Dorsey, traded Sherman in a player-for-player deal for cornerback Javier Arenas with the Arizona Cardinals. He has played every single game since.
Sherman has played an impressive 96 straight season games. In that tenure, he has scored 4 touchdowns and racked up a total of 467 total yards from scrimmage. Last year, he also hauled in eight passes.
In 2018, Sherman signed a one-year, $2 million deal with the Chiefs. Terms of the new deal are not currently available. Yet, it is safe to assume that this year’s deal is in the same ballpark.
