College career[edit]

Erving playing for Florida State in 2014

Erving played in three games as a defensive tackle as a true freshman in 2010. He recorded one tackle before an injury caused him to have a medical redshirt. He played in all 13 games as a redshirt freshman in 2011, finishing the season with 20 tackles and a sack. Erving was moved to offensive tackle as a sophomore in 2012.[1][2] He started all 14 games at left tackle.

As a junior in 2013, Erving was a first-team All-Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) selection.[3] He was also named a second-team All-American by the Associated Press. Erving started his senior season in 2014 as the starting left tackle, but was moved to center after an injury to Austin Barron.[4][5]

Erving is a member of the Florida State chapter of Phi Delta Theta fraternity.[6]

Cleveland Browns[edit]

On April 30, 2015, Erving was selected with the 19th overall pick by the Cleveland Browns in the 2015 NFL draft.[7]

Erving signed a four-year contract worth roughly $10 million, with a signing bonus of about $5 million.[8]

After long-time starting center, Alex Mack, left the Browns via free agency, the coach staff switched Erving from guard to center as his replacement.[9][10]

Kansas City Chiefs[edit]

On August 30, 2017, Erving was traded to the Kansas City Chiefs for their 2018 fifth-round pick.[11] He played in 13 games, starting four at guard.

On May 2, 2018, the Chiefs declined the fifth-year option on Erving's contract, making him a free agent in 2019.[12] On September 4, 2018, Erving signed a two-year contract extension with the Chiefs.[13] In the 2018 season, Erving became the Chiefs starting left guard.[14]
