Chiefs re-signed restricted free agent ILB Corey Mays to a one-year, $1.759 million contract.
Mays exceeded expectations as a starter last season, finishing as the Chiefs' third-leading tackler. He should retain his starting job, but the team is going to have to do something to get better alongside him. Demorrio Williams is a big-time liability, so perhaps Derrick Johnson will get a shot.

The Chiefs have extended a second-round tender to restricted free agent ILB Corey Mays.

Originally undrafted out of Notre Dame, Mays became a 16-game starter for the first time in his career last season. The Chiefs could find a better option, but value Mays' workmanlike mentality so much that he may keep his job.

Corey Mays and Demorrio Williams were the Chiefs' starting inside linebackers in Sunday's opener.

We're betting Derrick Johnson, who made a big play off the bench while K.C.'s starters were gashed by the Baltimore run game, will pass Williams shortly. Mays, playing the ILB spot the Chiefs originally ticketed for Zach Thomas, is probably safe. He's also more experienced than Williams in the 3-4 system.

Chiefs beat writer Kent Babb suggests that Corey Mays could overtake Zach Thomas to start at inside linebacker.

Babb loves stirring the pot with talk of depth chart moves, but this probably isn't happening unless Thomas' undisclosed injury lingers. After four years in the league, we know what Mays is -- a solid reserve and special teamer. Thomas was signed to start and help install K.C.'s new defense.

Chiefs signed LB Corey Mays, formerly of the Bengals.

Cheap, smart, and versatile, Mays can back up both inside linebacker positions in KC's 3-4 defense and will play special teams. He's a Notre Dame alum.

The Bengals will not extend restricted free agent LB Corey Mays a tender offer, making him an unrestricted free agent.

Mays, 25, will still likely find a new home. The Notre Dame graduate can back up all three linebacker positions and help someone on special teams.

Bengals acquired LB Corey Mays off waivers from New England.

The Bengals were desperate at linebacker after placing Lemar Marshall in IR. Mays was a special teamer with NE in Week 1, but was released after being inactive for Weeks 2 and 3.
