Closer To 53


Hat tip to bannyc9 for finding this list of early cuts from WPI. The rumor is that Bobby Sippio (no!) and Will “Route 71″ Svitek (YES!) have been cut by the Chiefs, but those reports are unsubstantiated rumors at this juncture. Here are the 17 cuts so far, and a nugget of info as well:

1. OC Rob Smith
2. OG Travis Leffew
3. OG Edwin Harrison
4. OT Anthony Alabi
5. TE Michael Allan
6. TE Michael Merritt (PUP)
7. WR Kevin McMahan
8. WR Sergio Joachim
9. WR Jabari Arthur
10. DE Jason Parker
11. DE Johnny Dingle
12. DT Derek Lokey
13. LB EJ Kuale
14. LB Steve Octavien
15. CB Rashad Barksdale
16. S Khayyam Burns
17. PK Connor Barth

There are no real surprises amongst this group but Warpaint Illustrated.com has learned that the Chiefs will carry five running backs to begin the season.

Kuale, McMahan and Parker are the best players on that list, and should land at least on a practice squad somewhere. The only other significant cuts were Alabi, Allan and Barth, three players some had high hopes for. Five cuts left…
