Dontari Poe, the Pro Bowl nose tackle of the Kansas City Chiefs, reportedly will remain with the team for at least another season.

The Chiefs have exercised the fifth-year option on Poe, keeping him under contract through 2016, NFL Media’s Albert Breer reported on Friday. The option year is worth $6.146 million.

The Chiefs selected Poe with the 11th pick in the 2012 draft, and the 6-foot-4, 350-pound lineman has been selected to the Pro Bowl the past two years while tallying 10.5 sacks from the middle of the line.
