Chiefs sign FB Sherman to extension

Kansas City, MO ( – The Kansas City Chiefs signed fullback
Anthony Sherman, who serves as the lead blocker for Jamaal Charles, to a
contract extension on Wednesday.

Sherman has caught five passes for 49 yards and a touchdown in eight games
this season.

The 25-year-old Sherman was traded to the Chiefs from the Arizona Cardinals
last year in exchange for cornerback Javier Arenas. He caught 18 passes for
155 yards and one score over 16 games in 2013.

success as a team.”

In 52 career games with the Cardinals and Chiefs, Sherman has 36 catches for
315 yards and two touchdowns. On the ground, he owns five carries for 14
