Cornerback Conroy Black's NFL dream won't be happening with the Kansas City Chiefs, who released Black on Tuesday morning. Black, who just joined the Chiefs at the start of camp, will be replaced on the roster by Semaj Moody, who comes from the Arena League's Chicago Rush.
Moody went to South Carolina State, coming out as an undrafted free agent before the 2011 season. He was listed at 5'9, 188 pounds coming out of school while the Rush list him at 5'10, 195 pounds.
Here's his Chiefs bio:
Moody (5-10, 195) joins the Chiefs after playing one season in the AFL for the Chicago Rush (2012). He played in all 18 games for the club and led the team in tackles with 86.5. Moody added three interceptions, 10 passes defensed and two fumble recoveries, returning one for a touchdown. Prior to his stint in Chicago he played collegiately at South Carolina State as both a receiver and defensive back. Moody prepped at Denmark-Olar High School in Denmark, S.C.
He will be one of many bodies that come and go during Chiefs camp. Impressing the coaching staff after coming in so late will be very difficult for him.
Andy Reid said everyone will play in the first preseason game, unless someone hardly has any practice time under his belt. It remains to be seen if Moody will get in Friday's game.
