Chiefs Release WR Bobby Engram; RB Kolby Smith to Active Roster

As we've been speculating all day, the Kansas City Chiefs released a player in order to make room for RB Kolby Smith on the 53-man roster. That player is WR Bobby Engram.

Via the mothership:

Engram served as a veteran leader amongst Kansas City’s wide receivers core, but had been a healthy inactive in two of the past three games. Engram’s departure opens the door for Lance Long to receive more playing time as Kansas City’s slot receiver. The arrival of Chris Chambers earlier this week gave the Chiefs eight rostered receivers, the most they had carried under head coach Todd Haley.

Although it may not seem that long ago, Engram was signed by the Chiefs way back on March 17th.

Bobby Engram played in five games for the Chiefs, catching five passes for 61 yards. He's in his 13th year in the NFL, which means his future as an NFL WR is definitely in question.

Here's how the Chiefs' WR stack up now:

  • Dwayne Bowe
  • Bobby Wade
  • Chris Chambers
  • Mark Bradley
  • Terrance Copper
  • Lance Long
  • Quinten Lawrence (Practice squad)
