Chiefs Still Have Open Roster Spots For Training Camp

New, comments

The Kansas City Chiefs, like most other teams, still need to fill their training camp roster to the maximum 90 players. In years past the max was 80 players during camp but so far the Chiefs haven't used the extra room they have this year.

Right now, the Chiefs roster has 75 players listed. Two of those -- LB Tamba Hali and LB Justin Houston -- are currently unsigned. (At least we believe Hali hasn't signed his franchise tender yet.) Let's assume both those guys sign soon and the Chiefs roster is at 75 players.

Three more players will come if/when the restricted free agents sign which includes CB Brandon Carr, OT Barry Richardson and DE Wallace Gilberry

So that's 78 players. 

We know the Chiefs are trying to pick up players in free agency but they've only signed two veteran free agents from other teams (WR Steve Breaston and NT Kelly Gregg). They've re-signed nine of their own free agents, too. FB Mike Fox Cox is the only restricted free agent to sign but they can't practice until Aug. 4 anyway.

Basically, 12 more players can sign in KC in addition to the current roster and expected signings. I wonder if the Chiefs will even make it to 90 players considering a lot of their focus has to be on getting the top 53 ready to roll.
