The Kansas City Chiefs announced the release of offensive lineman Tommie Draheim from the team's practice squad on Tuesday. The team had to move a player since their previous one-game exemption for Rokevious Watkins had expired and the team has a maximum of eight practice squad slots.

Draheim is likely a connection from former Green Bay general manager John Dorsey, since Draheim originally entered the league with the Packers. From the team's official release:

Draheim (6-4, 309) originally entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent with the Green Bay Packers in 2012. He was released by the Packers before the start of the regular season and was added to the Seattle Seahawks practice squad on Sept. 6. Draheim served a short stint on the New England Patriots practice squad before spending the rest of the 2012 season on Jacksonville's practice squad. Prior to entering the NFL, Draheim started 33 games for San Diego State University. The Lakeside, Calif., native prepped at El Capitan High School.

Right now, the Chiefs have eight players on their practice squad: safety Malcolm Bronson, linebacker Darin Drakeford wideout Frankie Hammond, tight end Demetrius Harris, guard Rishaw Johnson, fullback Toben Opurum, offensive tackle Matt Reynolds and offensive lineman Rokevious Watkins.
