Reactions to Donnie Avery's release from Kansas City Chiefs

The Kansas City Chiefs release of Donnie Avery came as a surprise to ... no one. Unfortunately for Avery, the writing was on the wall when he never really fully came back from his sports hernia surgery. Add in a key fumble in the Broncos-Chiefs game and more than $3 million of cap space saved and you have the whole story.
