Kansas City Chiefs Reportedly Waive Atiyyah Ellison

The Kansas City Chiefs last week signed DL Atiyyah Ellison when the trade of DE Alex Magee created an open roster spot. His stay didn't last long. Adam Caplan of FOXSports.com reports that Ellison has been waived after the Chiefs "decided they didn't need him."

The timing of it all is pretty interesting.

Ellison previously played for the Jacksonville Jaguars so when he was signed the week of the Chiefs and Jaguars game I figured it was a situation where the Chiefs would get as much information out of him as possible. Todd Haley later said that Ellison's signing was not a "get something on Jacksonville" situation. Maybe it was, maybe it wasn't.

So the Chiefs now have an open roster spot.

Tuesday is usually the day teams bring in free agents to work out. Remember, there's a report that four of the players the Chiefs have worked out recently are three former New England Patriots --- WR Kelley Washington, WR Sam Aiken and LB Pierre Woods -- as well as former Cleveland Browns S Gerald Alexander.

Caplan also reports the previously reported news that WR Jeremy Horne was added to the practice squad.

The Chiefs will confirm the news via a press release (probably today) assuming the report is accurate.
