Chiefs offensive tackle Mitchell Schwartz has signed a one-year contract extension, his agent Mike McCartney announced Wednesday.

Schwartz was under contract through 2020. This move extends the deal to 2021.

The one-year extension is worth $11.255 million, making him the second-highest paid right tackle in the league, a source told The Star. Schwartz has $13.2 million left on the old deal, and he’ll get that plus the $11.255 million.

Schwartz got $11.25 million to sign and the first two years are fully guaranteed.

Schwartz, 30, signed a five-year, $33 million contract with the Chiefs in 2016 after spending his first four NFL seasons with the Cleveland Browns. He has been the most steady presence on the Chiefs’ offensive line, not missing a game — or a snap — in his career. His consecutive snap streak surpassed 7,000 late last season.

In 2018, Schwartz was chosen first-team All-Pro after earning second team honors the previous two years.
