Chiefs LB Derrick Johnson Will Sign His Tender "In The Coming Days'

The Kansas City Chiefs offered LB Derrick Johnson an original pick tender (DJ was a first round pick) and, according to Scout.com, he will be signing it soon.

Johnson, a first-round pick in the 2005 NFL Draft, was tendered at the original draft round level, which is $1.226 million. However, his salary will be $2.475 million. According to the CBA, he had the option of taking 110 percent of the previous year's salary of $2.25 million.

Basically his tender meant that -- as a restricted free agent -- he could sign an offer sheet with another team. The Chiefs then would have then had the option of matching the contract offer or losing DJ and receiving a first round pick as compensation.

But it appears he'll be under contract -- "in the coming days" -- to the Chiefs for at least 2010.

DJ will be the first Chiefs RFA to sign his tender if that happens (or the first reported one).
