Just before free agency kicks off around the NFL, the Kansas City Chiefs have tendered restricted free agent LB Jovan Belcher at the second-round level.
Belcher is free to negotiate with any team in the league, though any offer sheet he signs can be matched by the Chiefs or the team will get a second-round pick in return. Considering the team is already likely looking for his replacement, they would gladly take a second-rounder for Belcher.
After going undrafted out of Maine in 2009, Belcher has played in every single game during his three years with the Chiefs. He has started 31 of 32 games in the last two seasons, including every game in 2011.
If the linebacker ends up signing the one-year tender, he will make $1.927 million.
