Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Derrick Johnson is expected to return to the Chiefs after being tendered at the original draft round level.
Johnson, 27 has spent all five years of his career in the NFL with the Chiefs. The most talented of all linebackers with the Chiefs, is coming off of his worst season in the NFL.
Part of the reason of such a poor statistical season was the lack of opportunity to make plays. Head coach Todd Haley who made it apparent as early as training camp, that he had a "beef" with Johnson as a player, cut most of his playing time the entire season since becoming the Chiefs head coach. Playing in 15 games last season, Johnson only was allowed to start in three of those games.
Currently, Johnson is a restricted free agent. According to Adam Caplan of Scout.com, Johnson is "expected to sign his restricted free agent tender in the coming days".
