[KC Chiefs.com] The Chiefs announced today that LB Derrick Johnson and G/T Ikechuku Ndukwe have signed their restricted free agent tenders.
Johnson was one of over 200 NFL players affected by new, uncapped rules for 2010. He was scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent after five seasons in the league, but when that number increased to six accrued seasons for an uncapped 2010, Johnson lost those UFA rights.
By signing the tender offer with Kansas City, Johnson is guaranteed to make $2.475 million this season based off his reported tender level.
Ndukwe was tendered by the Chiefs before the beginning of the 2010 unrestricted free agency period. He was one of two offensive linemen to come to Kansas City, via trade, from Miami on August 24th. The other, G Andy Alleman, was not tendered this offseason and signed with the Colts earlier this month.
