NFL Cuts: Expect Some Surprises From The KC Chiefs As Cut Deadline Nears

New, comments

As we've been hammering into your head for the last week, the Kansas City Chiefs and every other NFL team will have to trim their rosters down to 53 players today. When is the NFL roster cut deadline? 6 PM eastern time. 

So far, there haven't been any big surprises in the 12 players the Chiefs have cut. But if the KC Chiefs 2009 roster cuts are any indication, we should expect a couple of surprises.

The Chiefs' final round of cuts last year included 13 players. The biggest surprises of those cuts? S Bernard Pollard and G Colin Brown. Pollard apparently had issues with the Chiefs' brass and Colin Brown mysteriously ended up on the injured reserve list. Both were pretty big shockers to Chiefs fans. 

Looking at the current Chiefs roster, I don't see many opportunities to be surprised. However, this is Scott Pioli and Todd Haley we're talking about. Something odd is going to happen...

Who are the surprise cuts going to be? DT Shaun Smith? DE Alex Magee
