Kansas City Chiefs cut Justin Cox one day after his arrest

Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports

Well that was quick.

News surfaced this morning that Cox, who was a Chiefs UDFA signing in May, had been arrested in Mississippi and charged with domestic assault. This marks the second domestic violence incident that Cox has found himself in. The Chiefs predictably cut ties with him soon after the news came out.

It's difficult for an undrafted player to overcome something like this. It's questionable whether Cox will get another NFL shot at this point.

The Chiefs now have an open roster spot before training camp starts next week.
