One fullback remaining
The Chiefs had two fullbacks on the roster -- Shane Bannon and Patrick DiMarco. Bannon was one of the 14 Chiefs cut today while DiMarco lives another day.
How are the Chiefs going to use the fullback? Will they even keep a fullback? The Chiefs next game is on Thursday night. Makes me wonder if DiMarco has a shot.
By the way, the depth chart really doesn't matter. Bannon was the No. 1 fullback.
Caleb Campbell is a mild surprise
I thought he'd make it through this first round of cuts. Campbell, Jeremy Horne and Bannon were the biggest names on the list. Caleb Campbell had a lot of talent ahead of him at inside linebacker. I'm not surprised that he was cut; just that he was in this first round of cuts.
Four receivers were cut
Aaron Weaver, Zeke Markshausen, Jeremy Horne and Brandon Kinnie:
WR Steve Breaston, Dexter McCluster, Josh Bellamy, Devon Wylie,
Aaron Weaver, Zeke Markshausen
WR Jon Baldwin, Terrance Copper, Jamar Newsome,
Jeremy Horne, Brandon Kinnie, Junior Hemingway, Dwayne Bowe
OK, so let's look at this. Definite keepers include Breaston, McCluster, Wylie, Baldwin and Bowe. They'll probably keep six, maybe seven receivers. Terrance Copper? Josh Bellamy? Interesting decisions ahead.
Camp kicker is gone
So long Matt Szymanski.
Teams bring in kickers for training camp and then they're cut at the end of camp. That's what happened with Szymanski. He had little to no chance to beat Ryan Succop.
Most experienced cut was Jeremy Horne

#Chiefs today. Was only member of the 14 released to have appeared in a game for KC.
Local connection is gone
Brandon Kinnie may have a shot on the practice squad but for now he's been cut. Kinnie is from Grandview, here in the KC area.
