The Chiefs have made a small roster move that will most likely not create too many ripples.

Still, our goal here at Arrowhead Addict is to always keep you up to date on the latest and greatest going on in Chiefs Kingdom, so let’s get to the news.

According to a press release from Chiefs Communications, Kansas City has released practice squad member Tommie Draeim:

"KANSAS CITY, Mo. – The Kansas City Chiefs announced on Tuesday that the club has released offensive lineman Tommie Draheim from the club’s practice squad roster."

Chiefs Communications also provided some information on Draeim:

"Draheim (6-4, 309) originally entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent with the Green Bay Packers in 2012. He was released by the Packers before the start of the regular season and was added to the Seattle Seahawks practice squad on Sept. 6. Draheim served a short stint on the New England Patriots practice squad before spending the rest of the 2012 season on Jacksonville’s practice squad. Prior to entering the NFL, Draheim started 33 games for San Diego State University. The Lakeside, Calif., native prepped at El Capitan High School."

So, for the record, he was on three practice squads in 2012 and four teams.

He didn’t make it long on Kansas City’s practice unit, despite the fact that he’s 6’4”, 309 pounds.

At his size, chances are he’ll end on with another team helping the players on the roster prepare for games if he wants to. The goal of any practice squad is to give the roster good looks, and at the very least, Draheim has NFL size.

We wish him the best of luck moving forward with his career.
