Chiefs RG Jon Asamoah triggered an escalator in his rookie deal, raising his 2013 salary from $575,000 to $1.323 million.
Asamoah, a 2010 third-round pick, has started 31 of a possible 32 games at right guard for Kansas City over the last two seasons. He's part of a strong offensive line group, which should make new coach Andy Reid smile. Asamoah projects as an above-average run-blocking guard over the long-term. He's entering the final year of his contract.
