The Kansas City Chiefs continue to churn the roster. Shortly before Will Shields Hall of Fame speech on Saturday night, the Chiefs cut two players and signed two more.
#Chiefs Transactions: 8/8 Waived: WR, Armon Binns and LB, Sage Harold Signed: T, Anthony Dima and WR, Adam Drake— Kansas City Chiefs (@chiefs) August 8, 2015
Dima's signing comes after another tackle, Garrett Frye, was injured during Chiefs practice. I wonder if this is related. Dima is a 2014 uhndrafted free agent out of Massachusetts who briefly spent time with the Cleveland Browns and Houston Texans. He stands 6'6 and 295 pounds. He will need to put on a very, very good camp to have a shot at making this team.
Drake comes out of Tony Romo's alma mater, Eastern Illinois, where he had over 1,300 yards and 12 touchdowns last season. He was highly productive on that level so we shall see if he can translate any of that to the NFL. Drake's signing comes after the Chiefs lost several receivers to injuries, including Chris Conley, Junior Hemingway and Jeret Smith.
The release of Sage Harold is a little surprising to me. While I haven't seen every Chiefs offseason practice, Harold's name has come up a few times. I would not have put him as the 90th man on the roster. He would've been closer to the bubble for me. I'd be curious to hear the reasoning behind this one.
Binns, meanwhile, was injured during training camp last week.
