The Kansas City Chiefs have cut TE Kevin Boss and WR Steve Breaston.
This shouldn’t really come as a surprise. At some point the new regime was going to start making some moves and Breaston and Boss appear to be collateral damage.
Boss never really got started in KC. He had a serious head injury that ended his season in 2012. Boss has had a number of concussions in the NFL and while he does have some talent, his spotty history with head trauma could make him a risk the Chiefs aren’t willing to take.
As for Breaston, despite some initial success, he didn’t really produce last season. In fact, his numbers were so poor when he did play early in the season that Romeo Crennel eventually benched him.
Breaston wasn’t terribly expensive but he was was due $3.8 million in 2013. If the Chiefs are really ramping up to re-sign Dwayne Bowe and Branden Albert than it makes sense that they would start dumping some veteran salaries. Neither Bowe nor Albert will come cheap.
What do you think, Addicts? Did the Chiefs do the right thing cutting Boss and Breaston or do you think they should have been given a chance to land roster spots?
