NFL Roster Cuts: Chiefs Cornerback Depth Chart

The Kansas City Chiefs made their cuts for the roster cut down day and didn't leave themselves a lot of depth at cornerback.

The Chiefs starting corners -- Brandon Flowers and Brandon Carr -- have very little competition. It looks like Maurice Leggett's trip to IR will guarantee Javier Arenas the nickelback job.

If any of those guys go down, I think you have a few worried coaches.

LCB: Brandon Flowers, Jackie Bates

RCB: Brandon Carr, Javier Arenas, Travis Daniels

The Chiefs released Mike Richardson and Ricky Price from the active roster and sent Leggett to IR last weekend.

Brandon Carr has been an iron man since coming onto the Chiefs while Flowers missed a game last year with a shoulder injury, so I don't think these guys will miss much if any time.

I think the backup cornerback role is the one some were hoping Donald Washington would occupy. But he's been moved to free safety and is listed on the third team there. The Chiefs cornerbacks are a strength, no doubt, but there's not a whole lot behind them. Javier Arenas would be the top cornerback replacement forcing another into the nickelback role.

Thoughts on the Chiefs cornerbacks after the cut to 53-men? Am I just being nit picky about the backups?
