The Kansas City Chiefs have agreed to one-year deals with defensive tackle Mike Pennel and fullback Anthony Sherman, continuing their trend of keeping low-cost valuable contributors to their Super Bowl run on the roster. The cash-strapped Chiefs have been relatively quiet in free agency, though they have retained several of their own. That includes franchising defensive tackle Chris Jones and signing backup quarterback Chad Henne on a two-year deal.
Also earlier today, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell instructed the 32 teams to close their facilities to all but a select few employees until at least April 8. In a memo to the teams, Goodell says the restrictions are meant as a safeguard against the new coronavirus, and after two weeks will be re-evaluated, using advice from medical experts and health authorities. The few exceptions include trainers and doctors treating players, security and technology personnel.
