Chiefs Dump Former #1 Draft Pick OT Eric Fisher

The Chiefs 2021 offseason purge of their roster began Thursday, as the team has parted ways with former first-round, first-overall pick tackle Eric Fisher.

Fisher, who didn’t appear in the Super Bowl loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers after he tore his Achilles in the AFC Title win over the Bills, played in 15 regular season games for the Chiefs in 2020, and played in the team’s AFC Divisional win over the Cleveland Browns.

The release comes as somewhat of a surprise, but overall it’s a huge money saver for the Chiefs as they will save roughly $12 million against their salary cap.

Fisher was the first overall pick in the 2013 NFL draft and has been a fixture at left tackle for Kansas City over the past eight seasons.

He’s played in 117 games since he was drafted first overall, starting in 113 of those 117 games.
