The Kansas City Chiefs have cut T Jared Gaither, according to Pro Football Talk.
This obviously comes as a huge shock considering mot KC fans have been screaming for the team to start Gaither instead of the revolving door that is Barry Richardson.
Gaither got in the game for a snap last week against the Steelers when Branden Albert came out with an injury. He promptly jumped offside and was promptly yanked on the next play when Albert came back in.
I’m guessing the Chiefs just haven’t been thrilled with Gaither’s progress and effort. They have absolutely no depth at the tackle position and for the team to cut him now is a major red flag that they are fed up with him for some reason.
If the report is true (the Chiefs haven’t confirmed it yet), then KC has an open roster spot. They might want to consider filling that spot with a tackle that can block someone.
Just a suggestion.
