According to the official NFL transaction report, the Kansas City Chiefs released wide receiver Jamire Jordan with an injury settlement on Thursday.

Jordan, 23, was signed by the Chiefs as an undrafted free agent out of Fresno State on May 4. After being redshirted, Jordan played four years for the Bulldogs, gaining 2,245 yards and scoring 13 touchdowns on 145 receptions.

Jordan was waived with an injury designation on May 7 in order to make room for other players on the 90-man roster. After he cleared waivers, the Chiefs placed him on injured reserve — where he would not count against the Chiefs 90-man roster — which raised the possibility the Chiefs might try to hang on to him through training camp and beyond; we’ve never learned of a specific injury to Jordan.

But now the Chiefs have cut ties altogether, which makes Jordan a free agent.

This leaves the Chiefs with six new wide receivers on the roster: Mecole Hardman, Cody Thompson, Jamal Custis, Felton Davis, Davon Grayson and Rashard Davis. They’ll all be pushing returning wideouts Tyreek Hill, Sammy Watkins, Demarcus Robinson, Gehrig Dieter, Marcus Kemp and Byron Pringle for playing time when phase three of the Chiefs offseason program begins next week.
