Chiefs Cut Chandler Burden and Sign WR Rashad Ross To Practice Squad


The Kansas City Chiefs meet the Denver Broncos in Denver in less than a week in what will arguably be the biggest game of the 2013 season to date. Meanwhile, star receiver Dwayne Bowe was arrested for possession of marijuana.

There’s certainly a lot going on around the Chiefs right now and we could talk about the Denver game or Bowe ad nauseam. Still, with all this major news happening, Chiefs’ general manager John Dorsey is still wheeling and dealing on that practice squad.

According to a press release, the Chiefs have released Chandler Burden and have signed wideout Rashad Ross.

Here’s the take on Ross, per the report:

Ross (6-0, 181) originally entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent with the Tennessee Titans on May 9, 2013. He served on the Titans practice squad until being released on Oct. 29. Ross played collegiately at Arizona State where he appeared in 26 games (14 starts) and caught 55 passes for 864 yards with seven touchdowns over two seasons. He added 28 kickoff returns for 779 yards with two touchdowns and was a member of the Sun Devils track and field team. Prior to his time at Arizona State Ross played at Butte College. He prepped at Vallejo High School in Vallejo, Calif.

Burden had been with the Chiefs’ practice squad since early October. He was an undrafted free agent in 2012, who played college ball at Kentucky.
