Just because yesterday was the “cut down day” in the NFL, doesn’t mean general managers across the league are done tweaking their 53-man rosters. In fact, I would expect most rosters to look quite different next week than they do right now. Chiefs general manager John Dorsey is no different. Thus far this morning, three more Chiefs have become former Chiefs.
LB Zac Diles, DB Jalil Brown and Kevin Brock have turned in their playbooks and joined the unemployment lines this morning. All this from Adam Caplan’s Twitter feed.
Thus far it appears the Chiefs have only made one roster move to replace the three released players. Former San Francisco 49ers wide receiver, Chad Hall was claimed off waivers this morning.
We’ve said all offseason long here at AA that Dorsey would continue to tweak the bottom third of his roster up to and most likely into the regular season. These moves are quite indicative of that thinking. While the Hall signing confuses me a bit, considering the Chiefs released some viable receiving talent yesterday in Rico Richardson and Josh Bellamy, I’m sure Dorsey has something up his sleeve.
Sound off, Addicts. What do you think about these transactions? Good depth moves or senseless signings? Let us know!
