Chiefs LB Belcher signs free agent tender
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP)
The team announced that Belcher had signed his tender Thursday.
Belcher went undrafted in 2009 out of Maine, but he's become a solid contributor in the middle of the Kansas City defense. He's made 34 starts in 48 games over three seasons.
He also has experience on special teams.
Belcher will compete with Brandon Siler for the middle linebacker spot alongside Pro Bowl selection Derrick Johnson this season. Siler missed last season after tearing his Achilles tendon early in training camp.
