Insider Blog: Only One Remains

Posted Apr 20, 2010

LB Corey Mays signs his tender papers, making S Jarrad Page the only remaining RFA left to sign his tender offer

The Chiefs now have just one tendered restricted free agent left to sign.

Tuesday afternoon, LB Corey Mays officially inked his second-round tender offer that Kansas City extended to him back on March 5th. Mays was a surprise find last season in free agency as he started 13 games an inside linebacker for the Chiefs and set single-season career highs in tackles (100), passes defensed (1) and quarterback pressures (4).

Of the Chiefs seven tendered RFA’s, only S Jarrad Page has yet to sign his tender. He represented the final of the Chiefs RFA’s to sign his tender a year ago as well when he inked those papers on May 29th.

For those a bit confused with the RFA process, the next deadline to pay attention to is June 15th. RFA’s who don’t sign their tender by June 15th could see their 2010 salary reduced from their tendered amount to 110 percent of their 2009 salary. The June 15th deadline also means that RFA’s could skip most of the off-season program without facing penalty.
