Two minor Chiefs roster notes on Tuesday

Jordan Ta’amu clears waivers — and Andrew Wylie commits to the Chiefs for the coming season.

On Tuesday’s NFL transactions wire, there were a couple of minor items involving the Kansas City Chiefs.

The first was that quarterback Jordan Ta’amu has now cleared the NFL waiver process. Since no team claimed him after the Chiefs waived him on Monday, he is now free to sign with any club as a free agent.

This is the fourth time the Chiefs have cut ties with Ta’amu since he was first signed to a reserve/futures contract in March of 2020. This was on the heels of the XFL’s collapse, where the former Mississippi quarterback had started for the St. Louis Battlehawks.

The wire also revealed that Chiefs offensive lineman Andrew Wylie has signed his restricted free agent contract tender, which signifies his acceptance of the team’s one-year, $2.1 million contract for 2021. Once he was tendered the standard RFA contract on March 15, he was free to negotiate with other teams — but the Chiefs could match any competing offer to retain him.

With the signing, Wylie is tied to the team for the 2021 season— his fourth in Kansas City. Over the last three years, he’s appeared in 41 games, starting 35 of them at both left and right guard. After the 2018 season, he was named the team’s rookie of the year.
