A person familiar with the deal says the Kansas City Chiefs have signed kicker Ryan Succop to a $14 million, five-year contract extension. ESPN.com, citing anonymous sources, first reported the deal. The contract includes a $2 million signing bonus, according to a person who spoke on condition of anonymity to The Associated Press late Friday because an official announcement had not been made.

But he's been quite relevant for the Chiefs this season, hitting 24 of 29 field goal attempts, including 22 straight to match a franchise record.
