The Kansas City Chiefs have made a couple of more transactions today claiming nose tackle Anthony Toribio (pronounced tuh-RIB-ee-oh) off waivers from the Green Bay Packers. To make room for Toribio, the Chiefs released wide receiver Quinten Lawrence. Toribio was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Miami Dolphins in in 2008 and spent the last 2 seasons with Green Bay. From KCChiefs.com:
Toribio (6-1, 315) played in one game with Green Bay in 2009 after originally entering the NFL as a rookie free agent with Miami in 2008. He recorded 59 tackles, 21.0 tackles for loss and 9.5 sacks in four seasons at Carson-Newman. Toribio earned all-state honors as a senior at Miami Central High School in Miami, Florida.
You may remember recently I told you the Chiefs were cutting ties with members of the disappointing 2009 draft class. Yesterday the team released Colin Brown and Javarris Williams and now that Lawrence is gone, only five of the eight rookies taken in 2009 remain.
Something tells me the Chiefs aren’t finished shaking up the roster. The departure of Lawrence and the placement of Jerehemy Urban on IR leaves the Chiefs dangerously shallow at WR.
