Ben Grubbs is getting a fresh contract in a fresh city.

The Chiefs gave their new starting guard a four-year deal worth $24 million, NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Friday, per a source involved in the deal. The 31-year-old receives $8 million guaranteed.

The two-time Pro Bowler was set to make $6.6 million this season in New Orleans, but the Saints wanted him to take a pay cut. Instead, Grubbs was dealt to Kansas City on Thursday in exchange for a 2015 fifth-round pick. 

Before the new deal, Grubbs was entering the fourth season of the five-year, $36 million contract he signed with the Saints in 2012.

Grubbs is coming off a down season, but he's been the model of durability over his eight seasons in the NFL, starting all but 10 games. He immediately upgrades a weak K.C. interior line that lost anchor Rodney Hudson to the rival Raiders earlier this week.
