Kansas City Chiefs make seven roster moves
On Tuesday afternoon, the Kansas City Chiefs shook up the roster in the wake of rookie minicamp finishing. General manager John Dorsey is showing us he’s still a mover-and-shaker, signing four players while sending three home, per Terez Paylor of the Kansas City Star. Here are the moves that were made:
RB Keshawn Hill, Sam Houston St.
C Daniel Munyer, Colorado
OT Kevin Palmer, Baylor
G Melvin Meggs, South Alabama
OT Charles Sweeton, Tennessee-Martin
RB Manasseh Garner, Pittsburgh
TE Earnest Pettway, Villanova
None of these moves exactly qualify as Earth-shattering. All of these men were undrafted-rookie free agents who Kansas City gave a look over the weekend. Unfortunately, three of them did not make the initial cut. With months before the actual training camp begins in St. Joe, there will be plenty more turnover coming.
Of the players signed by the Chiefs immediately after the NFL Draft, it would be an upset if more than one makes the actual 53-man roster. Earlier, I provided my best guess as to which player that might be and tabbed cornerback DeVante Bausby out of Pittsburg State, who happened to grow up a Kansas City fan. Last year, it was Albert Wilson cracking the team and ultimately making a substantial contribution both on offense and special teams.
Currently, the Chiefs have 90 players on their roster, hitting the limit. By the time we see the regular season, Kansas City will have only 53 running onto the field. There’s a ton of work to be done.
