Kansas City Chiefs cut Da'Rick Rogers and one other player

Andrew Weber-USA TODAY Sports

The Kansas City Chiefs made a somewhat surprising move on Tuesday by releasing WR Da'Rick Rogers. Additionally, T Kevin Palmer has been released and T Tavon Rooks has been signed.

The release of Rogers is the slight surprise here. While he wasn't a lock to make the roster by any means his raw talent drew the interest of many fans and media.

When Jeremy Maclin and Albert Wilson were hurt earlier this offseason, the Chiefs lined up Frankie Hammond and rookie Chris Conley at receiver. I thought that because of the lack of depth that Rogers had a shot to make it.

Here's an interesting observation from ESPN's Adam Teicher:

The Chiefs essentially swapped tackles with the release of Kevin Palmer and the signing of Tavon Rookis, who went to Kansas State.
