On Thursday, the Kansas City Chiefs announced that LB Jovan Belcher had officially signed his restricted free agent tender, basically guaranteeing him a one-year, $1.972 million deal in 2012.
Also on Thursday, Chiefs scouts went out looking for the next Jovan Belcher.
The University of Maine held their pro day, the same even where Chiefs scouts checked out Belcher three years ago. If you're looking for a draftable player, safety Jerron McMillian appears to be it.
In February, safety Jerron McMillian participated in the NFL Combine at Indianapolis, where he led all defensive backs with a vertical leap of 36½ inches. On Thursday, he jumped 39½ inches. McMillian (5-11, 203) said he has received interest from a handful of NFL teams and is projected by NFL.com to have "sixth-round value" as a run-support safety.
