Zach Fulton, G. Fulton’s displayed the ability to play center in an emergency. With starter Mitch Morse having two concussions on his resume, having depth is important. However, much like other positions, Fulton could be a casualty of numbers. Not saying he will or should, but, it’s possible.
Kevin Hogan, QB. While I certainly doubt that Hogan will be released, he’s my candidate for surprise and unknown injury. Aaron Murray was likely the odd man out coming into camp. With the signing of Nick Foles, either Tyler Bray or Hogan will have to go. It’s hard to envision the Chiefs keeping four quarterbacks.
As Bray has far and away been the best of the Murray/Hogan/Bray backup group, my hunch is that the Chiefs find a way to keep both the better Bray and the young and cheap Hogan.
Tyler Bray, QB. Piggy-backing off what was mentioned above, if the organization simply decides to not play the bizarre injury/IR game or decides to move forward with Smith/Foles/Hogan, Bray will be a goner.
Eric Berry, S. Yes, I listed him as a candidate to not make the final 53-man roster, and yes, it’s possible. No, I don’t think it will happen. However, if this holdout gets deep into the preseason or even appears as if it will enter the regular season, it would not surprise me if the organization moves on.
Berry, unless he does a dramatic and drastic about face on his contract demands, is not back with the Chiefs in 2017.If the current group at safety appears like they can fit the bill, the Chiefs may view Berry’s money as an asset for Dontari Poe.
