Two of the Kansas City Chiefs exclusive rights free agents have signed their tenders. The NFL's daily transaction report shows that wide receivers Junior Hemingway and Frankie Hammond both signed their tenders, which formally puts them under contract for the 2015 season.

An exclusive rights free agent is a player who has two or less accrued seasons in the league. As the name suggests, the Chiefs hold exclusive rights over them, which means the player can accept the Chiefs tender or not play. There's no negotiation so this was a no-brainer for both players.

With the suspension to Dwayne Bowe last season and injuries to Donnie Avery and AJ Jenkins, Hammond ended up starting three games for the Chiefs last season. He had four catches for 45 yards on the season. Hemingway was set to be the Chiefs third or fourth receiver heading into the season but injuries cropped up which limited him. Both players should be considered on the roster bubble at this point.
