The Kansas City Chiefs cut 14 players to get down to 75 players well ahead of Monday's NFL roster cut down deadline.
The 14 players cut are:
Name Pos. Ht. Wt. Exp. College
Shane Bannon FB 6-3 245 1 Yale
Tim Biere TE 6-4 260 R Kansas
Caleb Campbell LB 6-2 237 1 Army
Justin Cheadle OL 6-2 290 R California
Dominique Ellis DB 5-11 195 R South Carolina State
Jean Fanor DB 6-1 200 R Bethune-Cookman
Dexter Heyman LB 6-3 238 R Louisville
Cam Holland OL 6-2 320 R North Carolina
Jeremy Horne WR 6-2 193 2 Massachusetts
Ethan Johnson DE 6-4 300 R Notre Dame
Brandon Kinnie WR 6-3 220 R Nebraska
Zeke Markshausen WR 5-11 185 1 Northwestern
Matt Szymanski K 6-1 196 R SMU
Aaron Weaver WR 6-2 220 R Syracuse
From that group, Bannon and Campbell are the only mild surprises in there. Both were on the bubble but had a better shot of making the roster than the others on that list.
Some of these guys will make up the Chiefs practice squad. So they may not be gone forever.
We'll be back shortly with more...
