Opurum was cut just this week. The team cut Jayhawk Bradley McDougald from the 53-man roster and then signed him to the practice squad. Opurum, another former Jayhawk, was the one that was cut to make room for McDougald.
And now Miller has been cut to make room for Opurum.

It looks like both McDougald and Opurum will be shuffled around this season. Many people thought during the preseason that McDougald had 53-man roster potential. Opurum likely isn't getting his 53-man roster shot this season (barring injury) as Anthony Sherman has actually looked pretty good.
Here is Miller's Chiefs bio if you were unfamiliar with him:
Miller (6-1, 316) originally entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent with the Chicago Bears on July 26, 2011. He spent the first 16 games on the Bears practice squad before being signed to the active roster on Dec. 27 for the club's postseason run. He was signed by the Green Bay Packers on Oct. 23, 2012, where he spent time on both the practice squad and active roster. He played collegiately at Southern University, recording 90 tackles (42 solo), 15.5 sacks, two fumble recoveries and a forced fumble in 31 career games with the Jaguars. Miller prepped at Largo High School in Marlboro, Md.
OK, back to your college football Saturday.
