Maurice Leggett Tweets He's No Longer A Chief

Kansas City Chiefs CB Maurice Leggett sent out a few messages via Twitter indicating that he is no longer a Chief.

All good things must come to an end. Please show the same love to my friends....

Another user tweeted at him: "You're still a Chief, right?" His response: "no".

A disappointing day fore. A bigger chip is on my shoulder. Still will play in the pro bowl

The Chiefs aren't confirming, denying or announcing any of the news regarding player movement this week so keep that in mind. Also, we're not sure if the Chiefs have released him, or if he was simply not offered a tender. (Editor's note: To clarify, with the league year ending, not offering him a tender is effectively releasing him since his contract was expiring as a restricted free agent.)

Leggett was an undrafted free agent and the Chiefs 2008 rookie of the year. He ended the 2010 season on injured reserve after suffering a head injury in a preseason game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. 

Assuming Leggett's information is accurate, here are the restricted players we're waiting to hear news on: TE Leonard Pope, C Rudy Niswanger, QB Brodie Croyle, TE Brad Cottam, FB Mike Cox, S Reshard Langford and LB Corey Mays.     

[FYI: Is this his Twitter account? Yes. He has done live UStream videos from it, tweeted pictures of himself, interacted with other Chiefs via Twitter and the page is connected to his official website.]
