NFL Roster Cuts: Kansas City Chiefs Release WR Lance Long

The Kansas City Chiefs got down to 75 players on Tuesday by releasing WR Lance Long.

Long, 25, came to the Chiefs on Sept. 16, 2009 and was placed on the practice squad before being activated in week seven.

Expectations for Long in Kansas City were slightly inflated when, in his second game as a Chief, he caught eight passes for 75 yards. He didn't have another game in the 2009 regular season or the 2010 preseason where he caught more than two passes in a game.

Long had two receptions for 12 yards in the second preseason game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He snagged a 39-yard pass against the Philadelphia Eagles in the third preseason game.

Long was originally brought to Kansas City because of his familiarity with Todd Haley while with the Arizona Cardinals in 2008.

The Chiefs are now down to 75 players before the 3:00 p.m. (CDT) deadline.
