NFL Cuts: KC Chiefs Checking Out Former Bills DT Lonnie Harvey

New, comments

With a big hat tip to tomahawk44 in the FanShots, FoxSports.com NFL writer Adam Caplan tells us that the Kansas City Chiefs worked out former Buffalo Bills' defensive lineman Lonnie Harvey. The work out happened late this week, after Harvey was waived by the Bills earlier in the week.

If the Chiefs did sign Harvey, it wouldn't be an earth shattering event. As Caplan notes, Harvey was originally signed as an undrafted free-agent with the Carolina Panthers in 2009. He was waived by Carolina before the season started and joined Buffalo's practice squad in late November.

When Harvey was waived, Buffalo Rumblings editor Brian Galliford said, "Harvey failed to make waves at the nose tackle position, where he was unremarkable during preseason play. He, too, has a shot at the practice squad."

So the Chiefs would be looking at a potential nose tackle in Lonnie Harvey. Perhaps they're not comfortable with who they have now? That would be Ron Edwards, Shaun Smith (he can play NT even though he is listed as a left defensive end), Garret Brown and potentially Derek Lokey

The Kansas City Chiefs also checked out a nose tackle a few weeks ago, Kendrick Clancy. He was re-signed by the New Orleans Saints on August 30th. 

You waiver wire hawks keep an eye out for potential nose tackles that are being released. They could be on the Chiefs' radar.
