Mays, 26, came into the league in 2006 as an undrafted free agent.
He's playing on his second round tender in 2010.
Generally a player signing a new agent means a new contract isn't far behind. It's unclear at this point if the Chiefs are interested in signing him long-term or if this means he's looking for a new deal.
At this point, it may be in the Chiefs best interest to let him play out the one-year deal he's got. Some players raise their game when the potential of a new contract is on the horizon.
