If someone wants to sign restricted free agent wide receiver Albert Wilson, it won’t cost them a draft pick.

PFT has learned, via a league source, that the Chiefs have tendered Wilson at the original-round level. That tender comes with a $1.797 million salary if Wilson plays out the year under its terms and gives the Chiefs the right to match an offer for Wilson, but there won’t be a pick attached because Wilson was not drafted coming out of college.

Wilson made the Chiefs in 2014 and has played 42 games for Kansas City over the last three years. He was a starter for much of the 2015 season and has caught 82 passes for 990 yards and four touchdowns over the course of his NFL career.

Wilson’s return would leave the Chiefs in position to bring back all of their top wideouts from last year as Jeremy Maclin, Tyreek Hill and Chris Conley are all under contract.
