Report: Anthony Hitchens to Sign Chiefs Contract After 4 Seasons with Cowboys

By Sports Wire on March 13, 2018

Anthony Hitchens is reportedly set to sign with the Kansas City Chiefs when free agency officially opens Wednesday.

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the former Dallas Cowboys linebacker's deal with the Chiefs will be worth $9 million per season.

Hitchens entered the league in 2014 when Dallas selected him in the fourth round of the draft out of Iowa, and he didn't miss a game in his first three seasons. However, he missed four games in 2017 because of a tibial plateau fracture suffered in a preseason game, although doctors initially told him on the field he tore his ACL, per Brandon George of the Dallas Morning News.

He played well in those 12 games with 84 combined tackles, a forced fumble and two passes defended. To hear him say it, he will be better in 2018 for his new squad.

"There is always room to get better, but overall I was pleased with my effort and the plays I made," he said, per George. "Me being a competitor, I left some plays out there. I'll be a better player next year."
