The Kansas City Chiefs made some roster moves yesterday, cutting three players and signing six.

Here are the details:

DL Risean Broussard, S Greg Castillo, DE Miguel Chavis, S Justin Glenn, RB Jordan Roberts and DB James Rogers.

Broussard (6-2, 278) played in eight games in one season at Hinds Community College, recording 61 tackles (43 solo), six tackles for a loss, 6.0 sacks (-42.0 yards), an interception (-15.0 yards) and two forced fumbles. He attended LaGrange High School in Lake Charles, La.

Castillo (5-11, 187) played in 41 games (seven starts) at Iowa, recording 55 tackles (32 solo), two interceptions and four passes defensed. The Mount Laurel, N.J., native earned first-team all-Catholic and all-city honors at St. Joseph’s Prep (Pa.).

Chavis (6-5, 285) played in 47 games at Clemson and had 71 tackles (37 solo), 1.5 sacks (-9.0 yards) and a pass breakup. The Fayetteville, N.C., native prepped at Terry Stanford High School before playing football at Hargrave Military Academy.

Glenn (5-11, 214) appeared in 40 games (16 starts) in four years at the University of Washington, recording 152 tackles (93 solo), three tackles for loss, four fumble recoveries, three interceptions and four passes defensed. Earned honorable mention All-Pac-12 as a senior and was named the Most Outstanding Special Teams Player at the team’s postseason awards banquet. The Mukilteo, Wash., native prepped at Kamiak High School where he was a defensive back and running back.

Roberts (5-10, 222) played in 11 games for the University of Charleston as a senior in 2012, rushing 238 times for 1,572 yards (6.61 avg.) with 18 touchdowns, earning WVIAC Offensive Player of the Year honors. The Yawkey, W. Va., native prepped at Scott High School in Madison, W. Va., earning the Kennedy Award as the best high school player in the state of West Virginia.

Rogers (6-1, 188) played in 46 games (15 starts) at the University of Michigan as a defensive back and wide receiver, starting 13 games at cornerback and two games at wide receiver. He caught three passes for 64 yards (21.3 avg.) during his career and added three interceptions and four passes defensed, as well as 15 special teams tackles. The Madison Heights, Mich., native prepped at Lamphere High School where he was a three-year varsity letterman.


D’Imperio (6-3, 240) originally joined the Chiefs this offseason as a free agent on March 21. He played in 12 games (one start) in two NFL seasons with the Minnesota Vikings (2010-11). After spending the 2010 season on the club’s practice squad, D’Imperio was promoted to the active roster in October of 2011, recording two catches for seven yards. He originally entered the NFL as a seventh-round draft choice (237thoverall) of the Vikings in the 2010 NFL Draft. D’Imperio played linebacker at Rutgers. He prepped at Washington Township High School in Sewell, N.J.

Eachus (5-10, 212) originally joined the Chiefs as a rookie free agent in 2012. He played in 11 games (two starts) with the club last year, recording five rushes for 18 yards and one catch for 19 yards. Prior to joining the Chiefs, he played collegiately at Colgate. He prepped at Hazleton Area High School in Hazleton, Pa. 

Gumbs (5-10, 210) originally entered the NFL as a rookie free agent with the New Orleans Saints on April 30, 2012. Gumbs was released by the Saints on Sept. 7. He originally signed on with Kansas City’s practice squad on Dec. 5, 2012. Gumbs was a starter at Monmouth. He prepped at Hebron Academy in Hebron, Maine.

The six players the Chiefs added were all at the team’s rookie minicamp on a tryout basis. The Chiefs were pretty deep at the FB position so D’Imperio and Eachus were expendable. Eachus landed on the radar of KC fans last preseason when he had a couple of decent games carrying the football. He started at FB for multiple games in 2012.
