The Kansas City Chiefs have signed linebacker Brandon Siler to a one-year contract extension after he missed all of this season because of a torn Achilles tendon. Siler's agent, David Canter, confirmed the deal Saturday in a text to The Associated Press. Siler was expected to compete for time at middle linebacker alongside Pro Bowl selection Derrick Johnson after spending last season with the San Diego Chargers. He had a good start to training camp but was hurt in late August, and had surgery to repair his Achilles a few days later. Canter said that ''rehab's going well'' and Siler is looking forward to August. The former Florida linebacker made 12 starts in 58 games over five seasons with San Diego.
