Also, the Chiefs have given starting center Rudy Niswanger and backup tackle Ikechuku Ndukwe tender offers with a second-round draft choice as the compensation. For four-year veteran Niswanger, that's a one-year deal of $1,759,000 and for three-year player Ndukwe that's a tender worth $1,684,000.
Second round tenders for both players. They'll definitely be safe at that level.
Niswanger, 27, started every game for the Chiefs last season.
Ndukwe, 27, was brought to the Chiefs in a trade from the Miami Dolphins. He saw a little action in 2009 but his future is definitely in question.
