The Kansas City Chiefs have cut nose tackle Alameda Ta’amu to make room for the Nick Foles signing. This according to a tweet from the Chiefs shortly after they confirmed the Foles signing.
Roster Move: We placed Alameda Ta’amu (NT, Washington) on waivers.— Kansas City Chiefs (@Chiefs) August 5, 2016
That’s too bad. Ta’amu had the thing that everyone has: potential. Unfortunately, he must not have flashed it enough at camp. He was signed in January of this year after a bit of a history. The Chiefs defensive line is deep so it’s a tall task to make that position group.
