NFL roster cuts tracker: Chiefs making moves on Saturday

UPDATEThe Chiefs cuts are in!

The Kansas City Chiefs deadline to get down to 53 players is at 3 p.m. (Arrowhead Time) on Saturday afternoon. The Chiefs made some cuts on Friday but they have plenty more to go. Then they’ll be putting together a 10-man practice squad by Sunday, along with scouring the waiver wire. This will be a busy day and we’ll be tracking it all.

Chiefs cuts (yes, we're still waiting on all of them)

These Chiefs have reportedly been cut. Click on the link for the source.

WR Rod Streater (traded to 49ers)

LB Tyrell Adams

WR Frankie Hammond

QB Kevin Hogan

OT Zach Sterup

DB Brock Vereen

DT David King: I thought he had a shot but it speaks to the Chiefs d-line depth. He could get picked up someplace. He made the Seahawks 53-man last year.

TE Brian Parker: He was the fifth tight end. He is a good blocker but doesn't have the receiving skills of Ross Travis.

C Daniel Munyer: Zach Fulton backing up the center position cost Munyer. He was promoted from the practice squad last year when Mitch Morse had a concussion so he could stick around on the practice squad.

OL Jarrod Pughsley: He can play guard and tackle and has been around. Could be a practice squad guy.

DE Jimmy Staten: He just tweeted something ominous that appears he has been cut. He's a good player who could get picked up someplace.

S Shak Randolph: Big guy who has some nice athleticism. I could see him being a practice squad candidate.

LB Terrance Smith: Inside linebacker and special teamer. He has enough upside to make the 53-man roster next year as an injury replacement this year.

RB Darrin Reaves: A minor surprise here as many of us had him making it. The Chiefs hope to put him on the practice squad.

QB Aaron Murray: Not a shocker but the biggest name here. He will end up on a team someplace. Will he be claimed?

LB Andy Mulumba: He was probably battling Dadi Nicolas for the final pass rusher spot.

CB Marcus Cooper (traded to Cardinals): Nice job by Dorsey to get something for a player they were potentially going to cut. He wasn’t on our radar as a trade candidate.

CB Deveron Carr: I actually like him. He had little shot of making the roster but he's worth spending more time with. Curious to see what happens.

OT Reid Fragel: Long shot to begin with. Maybe he’s a practice squad guy while Zach Sterup is suspended.

WR DaRon Brown: 2015 seventh round pick. Could be a practice squad guy or could be gone. Hasn’t made much of an impact.

S Jeron Johnson: Some people had him on the 53-man roster. He is one of the most experienced (five years) players in the secondary.

S Jamell Fleming: Moved from corner to safety this year. Not a surprising cut given where he was on the depth chart.
