Although there is no final word on the matter yet, it looks like the Kansas City Chiefs are extending right guard Laurent Duvernay-Tardif. Ian Rappoport has tweeted,
Sources: #Chiefs and star G Laurent Duvernay-Tardif are finalizing a 5-year, $41.25M extension. Huge payday for the Canadian doctor-to-be.

LDT took a huge step forward in 2016 — from 2015 — and nailed down the right side guard position on the Chiefs offensive line. This represents a firm commitment to a member of a line that performed at or near the middle of the pack and had a number of breakdowns especially in the playoffs. We can only hope LDT makes as big a step forward in 2017 as he did last year.
Congratulations to Laurent Duvernay-Tardif.
