LB Corey Mays Completes Chiefs RFA Tenders

The Kansas City Chiefs extended tenders to all but two of their restricted free agents, according to various reports. Here's the run down on the Chiefs restricted free agents and their corresponding tender level:

First round level - LB Derrick Johnson ($2.621 million)

Second round level - QB Brodie Croyle ($1.759 million), LB Corey Mays ($1.759 million), G Ikechuku Ndukwe ($1.684 million), C Rudy Niswanger ($1.759 million), RT Ryan O'Callaghan ($1.759 million), S Jarrad Page ($1.759 million)

The biggest one here is Derrick Johnson, who could have been a candidate for a first and third round tender -- the highest level. Though it's highly unlikely anyone will give up a first round pick for him, the lower of the two tenders might indicate to the rest of the league that the Chiefs will listen to offers.

Here's a longer story I did on that topic this week.

It's also highly unlikely that any of the second round tenders will be matched. Croyle would be the only possibility and that's a stretch.

Two players were not extended tenders: OL Andy Alleman and RB Jackie Battle.

Alleman was a slight surprise considering the state of the Chiefs offensive line. Battle ended the season on IR and wasn't expected to make a serious run at a roster spot.
