Chiefs Cut CB Buddy Jackson


The Kansas City Chiefs announced last evening that they have decided to part ways with CB Buddy Jackson.

From the team’s press release:

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – The Kansas City Chiefs announced on Tuesday that the club has waived cornerback Buddy Jackson.

Jackson (6-1, 180) originally entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent with the Indianapolis Colts in 2012. He spent a portion of training camp with the Colts and then joined the Washington Redskins practice squad for the final seven weeks of the 2012 season. He was claimed off waivers by the Chiefs on May 14, 2013. Jackson played collegiately at the University of Pittsburgh. The Plantation, Fla., native prepped at Cypress Bay High School in Weston, Fla.

The Chiefs signed Jackson back on May 14th.

Here is what we said about him then:

Jackson was an undrafted free agent out of Pittsburgh. He was signed by the Indianapolis Colts and then landed on the Washington Redskins practice squad. He appears to be a raw prospect with heaps of athletic ability. Unfortunately, being strong and fast doesn’t always mean a guy will be a good football player.

Jackson was signed shortly after the Chiefs cut CB Dequan Menzie. He may have gotten an invitation to camp based on athletic ability but the Chiefs must have seen enough in practice to know that Jackson had no chance of making the team.

    Interesting cutting a player at this time if not cutting a player to make room to sign another player and maybe that’s what Dorsey and Reid are doing, making room for someone else but if that’s the case then who are they making room for? Dun dun dun!!!!…to be continued.
