Kansas City Chiefs Start Trimming Down Roster To Meet NFL Cut Day Deadline

The Kansas City Chiefs have to trim their roster by 27 players by Saturday afternoon at 6 p.m. ET. That means a lot of tough decisions are being made today and tomorrow by the Chiefs' brass. 

We have word that two of those decisions may have already been made. Via their respective Twitter accounts, it appears that CB Reshard Langford and LB Micah Johnson have both been casualties of the roster trim down. 

Langford only became a Kansas City Chief in December 2009, although it seems like longer for some reason. He played six games last year, mostly on special teams. On an eyeball level, Langford appeared to make plays on special teams and his release comes as somewhat of a surprise to the Chiefs' fanbase. However, Langford was existing on that very thin plane of special teams/practice standout. It wasn't long before the Chiefs felt like they had seen enough in Langford and decided to give another player a chance. 

There's not much you can say about LB Micah Johnson. The Chiefs' signed him in December 2010 and he didn't play. 

Langford tweeted out not too long ago:

So it's been fun KC. Maybe I'll see you on the other sideline in time. Thanks for taking me in. Much love to the fans Thanks for the support

And Johnson tweeted this out about 5 p.m. ET today:

Jus got released..no love lost no tears shed!! On to the next one..keep ya posted..thanks for the support!!

It's not official but I'm pretty sure Langford and Johnson are gone. That means the Chiefs have 25 more roster cuts to make.
