Ward inked a second-round restricted free agent tender with the Chiefs on Thursday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

The tender will set Ward to make $3.384 million with the Chiefs this season. The Middle Tennessee product handled a starting role at cornerback for much of the season last year, recording 51 tackles (38 solo), one sack and six pass breakups in 14 games. Sticking in Kansas City, Ward is expected to handle another sizeable role in the Chiefs' secondary in 2021.
