Chiefs Waive Safety Bradley McDougald

The Kansas City Chiefs announced this afternoon that the club has waived safety, Bradley McDougald.

From the Chiefs’ press release:

The Kansas City Chiefs announced on Monday that the club has waived safety Bradley McDougald.

McDougald (6-1, 209) originally joined the Chiefs as a rookie free agent on May 1, 2013. He was active for one contest vs. Dallas on Sept. 15, but did not play. Prior to joining the Chiefs, McDougald played in 47 games (33 starts) seeing action on both sides of the ball at the University of Kansas. He recorded 194 tackles (148 solo), 16 tackles for a loss, 2.0 sacks, six interceptions, three forced fumbles. He also had 52 catches for 558 yards (10.7 avg.) with one touchdown and six rushes for 31 yards. He prepped at Scioto High School in Columbus, Ohio.

Interesting. Letting McDougald go could mean the Chiefs are about to make a roster move. It could mean they are planning to add a free agent or they could be looking to elevate one of their practice squad players.

McDougald will have to pass through waivers so if he is not claimed he will be free to sign with any NFL team, including the Chiefs. KC may want to move McDougald to their practice squad, should he clear waivers.

    TE Brock added. Not sure when we will see Kelce in action, knee bruise, whatever that means.

      I’ve had some knee bruises before,i still go to work… Would be nice to see Kelce sometime this season.would be nice to see a large TE presents during the Thursday night game.

        I also go to work with injuries but my job doesn’t consist of getting hit by large men with helmets on

        • obrien5

          Yes but large women are another story.

            Lmfao now that’s a scary thought

  • freshmeat62

    I kind of hate to see this. I was rooting for the kid. He made some plays in the preseason. Hope he makes the practice squad.

  • chiefridgy

    He’ll be back…..they had to make room for the tight end they just signed.
