It appears the Chiefs have seen enough from quarterback Tyler Bray to keep him around for a while.

The Chiefs have signed Bray to a two-year extension through 2017, a source confirmed to The Star on Thursday.

According to ESPN’s Field Yates, who reported the news first, the extension is worth $1.925 million, though Bray could earn up to $4.425 million.

Yates also reported that the Chiefs agreed to pay Bray’s full salary of $510,000 for 2015 while he is on non-football injury list.

The Chiefs signed Bray, 23, as an undrafted free agent out of Tennessee in 2013. He has not attempted an NFL pass. He spent 2014 on injured reserve, and tore his ACL in January.

Bray has not practiced since then, and was placed on the Non-Football Injury (NFI) list on Tuesday.
