Chiefs formally waive OT Tavon Rooks, who had a heart attack at training camp last year

New, comment

The NFL's Friday transactions report showed the Kansas City Chiefs cut OT Tavon Rooks. Many of us didn't realize that Rooks was even still on the team given his NFL career is over.

Rooks was the one who suffered a heart attack during training camp last year, as Herbie Teope and Chiefs Digest detailed back then. The Chiefs reportedly made sure he could continue to afford medical insurance although not directly paying his bills.

I thought the Chiefs had reportedly waived him way back in roster cut downs last September but it sounds like the roster move this week is a formality.
