Kansas City Chiefs cut 3 players, sign 6

The Kansas City have six new players in the house: RB Jordan Roberts, DT Risean Brousard, DT Miguel Chaviz, DB Greg Castillo, DB Justin Glenn and DB James Rogers. Three more players were cut.


The Kansas City Chiefs just made nine roster transactions, cutting three players and signing six more. All six of those players are tryout players from last weekend's rookie minicamp.

The players cut: FB Ryan D'Imperio, RB Nate Eachus and DB Jose Gumbs

The players signed: DL Risean Broussard, S Greg Castillo, DE Miguel Chavis, S Justin Glenn, RB Jordan Roberts and DB James Rogers

Among the players released, Eachus is the only one who is a minor surprise but with the fullbacks acquired this offseason (via trade and the draft) it's not shocking by any means.

We don't know much about the tryout players signed. 36 of them were in the house last weekend and six of them signed. Here's the Chiefs bio on each of these guys:

Broussard (6-2, 278) played in eight games in one season at Hinds Community College, recording 61 tackles (43 solo), six tackles for a loss, 6.0 sacks (-42.0 yards), an interception (-15.0 yards) and two forced fumbles. He attended LaGrange High School in Lake Charles, La.

Castillo (5-11, 187) played in 41 games (seven starts) at Iowa, recording 55 tackles (32 solo), two interceptions and four passes defensed. The Mount Laurel, N.J., native earned first-team all-Catholic and all-city honors at St. Joseph's Prep (Pa.).

Chavis (6-5, 285) played in 47 games at Clemson and had 71 tackles (37 solo), 1.5 sacks (-9.0 yards) and a pass breakup. The Fayetteville, N.C., native prepped at Terry Stanford High School before playing football at Hargrave Military Academy.
