The Kansas City Chiefs made a move some of us had been speculating after they traded for Cameron Erving. The Chiefs cut offensive lineman Jah Reid.

Once the Chiefs traded for Erving from the Browns we wondered where he would play. Terez Paylor said the Chiefs viewed Erving as a swing tackle and backup center which put Reid’s roster spot in jeopardy as he too is a swing tackle. Reid nor the other backup tackles looked great this preseason so I wouldn’t call this a surprise.
The Chiefs will have a lot more roster moves coming as they go from 90 to 53 players during cut downs this Saturday.
