Chiefs officially decline option on quarterback Nick Foles | The Kansas City Star

The Chiefs officially decline Nick Foles’ $6.75 million option on Thursday, a source confirmed to The Star.

"I just got annoyed and tired of people still asking me and telling me they wanted me to stay a Dolphin, but I had no choice. I’m not saying anything about anybody – when you are walking the streets, when you’re walking with your friends and back then everyone says they want you here, but you already know your fate. It was kind of hard, but now I know. I am excited to know where I am going. It’s announced and I can put that to rest and move on."

Chiefs decline to renew contracts of WR Kenny Cook, FB Trey Millard | Chiefs Wire

Both Cook and Millard were set to become exclusive-rights free agents, which means the Chiefs had the option to hit them with a one-year tender. Had Kansas City done that, the player would either have to sign that tender (usually for league minimum salary) or sit out the season.
