KC Chiefs with 7 waiver wire claims; 6 more roster cuts made

The Kansas City Chiefs cut six players and claimed seven off of the waiver wire on Sunday, one day after the deadline to trim rosters to 53 players. The Chiefs are making a lot of moves.


The Kansas City Chiefs are one of the busiest teams in the NFL right now. They just cut six players and brought in a whopping SEVEN new players today alone. Think about that -- seven new Chiefs in one day. It's like the NFL Draft in September!

We have been tracking all of the cuts throughout the day right here. The NFL's personnel sheet has come in and confirmed all of the reports that we have. This should put the Chiefs at 53 players on the roster.

So this is where we're at right now....

Players that were cut by Chiefs

S Bradley McDougald, NT Jerrell Powe, LB Zac Diles, WR Devon Wylie, CB Jalil Brown, TE Kevin Brock.

Many predictions had every one of these players on the Chiefs 53-man roster but these were also all known bubble players. Practice squad could be a possibility for McDougald. Wylie is the most notable cut here as he was once thought to have a role as a return man.

Claimed on waiver wire from other teams

Seahawks CB Ron Parker, Seahawks TE Sean McGrath, Seahawks DT Jaye Howard, Browns LB James-Michael Johnson, 49ers CB Marcus Cooper, 49ers WR Chad Hall, Packers LB Dezman Moses.

Interesting combo of teams here. The 49ers and Seahawks have two of the best rosters in the NFL. The Chiefs should gladly pick up their released players. The Packers signing is the John Dorsey connection. The Chiefs played the 49ers and Packers this preseason.

Practice squad

S Malcolm Bronson, OL Tommie Draheim, OL Matt Reynolds, LB Darin Drakeford, WR Frankie Hammond, TE Demetrius Harris, FB Toben Opurum, OL Rokevious Watkins

All of these players were just cut by the Chiefs on Saturday night.
