Chiefs Make First Two Cuts

The Kansas City Chiefs have made their first of 15 required roster moves to get down to 75 men by Tuesday.

Tight end Adam Schiltz, who was signed immediately after the retirement of Sean McGrath, has been let go by the team. The Emporia State alumni participated in only two preseason snaps according to PFF, so it is not a surprise he is gone. Kansas City has Anthony Fasano, Travis Kelce, Demetrius Harris, and Richard Gordon remaining on the roster at tight end.

Cornerback Vernon Kearney was also let go. An undrafted free agent from 2013, Kearney played in only 14 snaps in the preseason. Kansas City still has ten cornerbacks remaining on the roster so it would not be a surprise to see a few more corners cut before Tuesday’s deadline.

The Chiefs have to make 13 more moves between now and Tuesday to meet the NFL’s 75-man requirement. We discussed some possible cuts on Sunday afternoon and made our most recent 53-man roster predictions before Saturday’s game against the Vikings. You can check both of those things out to try and get an idea of who may be cut.
