The Kansas City Chiefs need to make two more roster moves in order to be down to the league-mandated 80-man roster limit by 3:00 p.m. (Arrowhead Time) today. They were at 89 players yesterday morning and made seven moves to get down to 82 players, where they stand now.
It's easy to predict that the Chiefs next two moves will be a couple of undrafted free agents, or other players we never thought had a legitimate shot at making the team. However, I could see a veteran getting the axe now so that he has enough time to find another team. Maybe that's how it happens, maybe not. But it's something to keep in mind.
Like we were talking about the other day, the Chiefs also need to be watching out for the cuts other teams are making. There aren't many holes on the Chiefs roster but there are some so I'm interested in seeing who else becomes available.
While we wait on the next two cuts, I've (once again) posted the entire depth chart after the jump. Two more players' names will be gone from that list by this afternoon and on Sept. 3 it'll be trimmed down to 53 players.
