Cut Day: Tracking the Players that Might Interest the Chiefs

Cut day is coming at 3:00 PM (CST) today.  NFL teams must be down to 75 players.  Most are currently at 80.  

This will be used to track the players that are cut that the Chiefs could be interested in.  We'll definitely be keeping an eye on the guys that have the Pioli/Haley/Parcells connection since it seems that the Chiefs have been targeting many of those players.

I will be updating this as the cuts come in so continue to come back. 

Titans - C Matt Lehr 

Lehr is intriguing because the Chiefs appear to have a need at the center position.  He was drafted by the Cowboys in the 5th round of the 2001 draft and played under Bill Parcells for two seasons starting 18 games.

Here are his career stats.

Rams - TE Joe Klopfenstein 

2006 2nd round draft pick, Klopfenstein is 6'5", 250 pounds.  Chiefs appear to need tight end help.

Here are his career stats.

Broncos - WR CJ Jones 

I don't think the Chiefs would be interested in Jones (again) but they did previously sign him so you never know.

Broncos - TE Jeb Putzier

Like I said above, the Chiefs appear to be looking for tight end help.

Here are his career stats.

Broncos - C Blake Scheuter

Scheuter was a 7th round draft pick of Josh McDaniels and, as we all know, the Patriots connection doesn't stray too far.  The Chiefs also appear to be looking for help at center.
