Chiefs roster cuts: First 11 players have been released

The 2015 NFL roster cut season is upon us with the Kansas City Chiefs making their roster moves.

The Kansas City Chiefs trimmed 11 players ahead of Tuesday's deadline to get the roster down to 75 players. The Chiefs released the list of players released and there aren't any major surprises on there.

It appears the long snapper battle has been decided with Andrew East getting cut. Looks like James Winchester has won the job. WR Kenny Cook was someone who made some plays in OTAs but he didn't make it. DE Vaughn Martin was on some of our early 53-man roster projections but he was released.

The Chiefs will be making a 10-man practice squad next Sunday and some of these players could be on it. The Chiefs will need to be down to 53 players by next Saturday.

Here is our most recent Chiefs 53-man roster prediction.

More cuts are coming but here's where the Chiefs stand now:

WR Kenny Cook

OT Anthony Dima

LS Andrew East

CB Aaron Hester

DE Vaughn Martin

CB Kenneth Penny

G Marcus Reed

TE Adam Schiltz

WR Jeret Smith

OL Charles Tuaau

WR L'Damian Washington
