It was clear that a roster cut was coming for the Kansas City Chiefs with the return of Tamba Hali to the active 53-man roster. However it was a complete guess as to who the cut might be. Cameron Sheffield is now the answer, according to a report from Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun.
One player had to go since Hali's one-game suspension for violating the league's substance abuse policy took him off the roster.
We asked AP readers yesterday for their best guesses and the results ranged all over the place, but it should have been obvious that someone from the same position would be leaving. Sheffield plays the same outside linebacker position, but it's a shock to those who believed the Chiefs really valued Sheffield as a burgeoning OLB and pass rusher.
Perhaps Sheffield now makes it to the practice squad if he can clear waivers. Or maybe this is the end of his career with KC.
Were you surprised that the Chiefs cut Cameron Sheffield?
