Chiefs Waive Safety Bradley McDougald


John Rieger-USA TODAY Sports`

The Kansas City Chiefs announced this afternoon that the club has waived safety, Bradley McDougald.

From the Chiefs’ press release:

"The Kansas City Chiefs announced on Monday that the club has waived safety Bradley McDougald. McDougald (6-1, 209) originally joined the Chiefs as a rookie free agent on May 1, 2013. He was active for one contest vs. Dallas on Sept. 15, but did not play. Prior to joining the Chiefs, McDougald played in 47 games (33 starts) seeing action on both sides of the ball at the University of Kansas. He recorded 194 tackles (148 solo), 16 tackles for a loss, 2.0 sacks, six interceptions, three forced fumbles. He also had 52 catches for 558 yards (10.7 avg.) with one touchdown and six rushes for 31 yards. He prepped at Scioto High School in Columbus, Ohio."

Interesting. Letting McDougald go could mean the Chiefs are about to make a roster move. It could mean they are planning to add a free agent or they could be looking to elevate one of their practice squad players.

McDougald will have to pass through waivers so if he is not claimed he will be free to sign with any NFL team, including the Chiefs. KC may want to move McDougald to their practice squad, should he clear waivers.
