Brad Cottam Released By Kansas City Chiefs

New, comments

The Kansas City Chiefs have released TE Brad Cottam, according to the latest press release. Cottam came to the Chiefs as a third round pick in the 2008 NFL draft.

He suffered a scary looking neck injury in the 2009 season which kept him out for all of 2010. The Chiefs briefly released him prior to the 2010 season only to re-sign him and put him on IR.

With TE Tony Moeaki currently on the PUP list, the Chiefs are a little thin at tight end. 

Tight ends available right now are UDFA Charlie Gantt, Jake O'Connell and Cody Slate. GM Scott Pioli always seems to keep a healthy number of tight ends on the roster so I wouldn't be shocked to see someone else picked up.

Assuming he's not re-signed at some point, he ends his Chiefs career with 16 receptions for 183 yards and no touchdowns.
