KC Chiefs Roster Cuts Coming Soon

August 24, 2012; Kansas City, MO, USA; Kansas City Chiefs running back Nate Eachus (45) is congratulated by fullback Patrick DiMarco (49) after Eachus scores in the fourth quarter of the game against the Seattle Seahawks at Arrowhead Stadium. Seattle won

As noted the other day, the Kansas City Chiefs have to trim their roster down to 75 players by Monday afternoon at 3:00 p.m. (Arrowhead Time). That's the first of two NFL roster cut down dates with the second coming on Friday at 9:00 p.m. (Arrowhead Time).

I've been looking at the recent history of the KC Chiefs around roster cut down time and there doesn't seem to be any clues as to when the Chiefs will announce the cuts. They could wait right up until Monday's deadline. They could also begin trimming the roster with announcements this weekend. They've done it both ways in the past.

I would expect to hear of a cut or two this weekend, even if it's not an official announcement from the team. The Chiefs preseason game is done so nothing is stopping them from making cuts between now and Monday.

In 2011, the deadline was on a Tuesday and the Chiefs made seven of their nine cuts on that Monday.

In 2010, they made four of five cuts on the Sunday before the Tuesday deadline.

In 2009, the Chiefs made their cuts on the day of the deadline.

Chiefs practice ends at 2:00 p.m. on Monday. I don't know why they would allow players who are about to be cut to practice so logically it makes sense to make the decision before Monday's practice.

The Chiefs are at 89 players right now so they need to cut 14 to get down to 75 players.
