Chiefs cuts tracker: Who is gone?


The Kansas City Chiefs have started the process of getting down to their final 53-man roster. Here are the moves so far…

As the Chiefs continue to whittle down from 75 players to 53, we will keep tabs right here. With each move, we will add some brief analysis and what it could mean for the position group of the player cut.

Here we go…

With the release of Mulumba, general manager John Dorsey is saying he has faith in Dadi Nicolas to be alright after straining his neck. Mulumba played well on Thursday night, but could not finish on two easy sacks.

We all knew this was coming barring a trade. Murray was terrible on Thursday and generally underwhelming throughout the preseason. With Nick Foles on the team and Tyler Bray continuing to show a live arm, this was a matter of time.

Brown had no real chance of making the roster. He was going to be a practice squad guy at best, and could still be depending on other moves.

Again, Fragel never had a real shot of making these team. Dorsey should be looking early and often for a swing tackle.

Carr showed some promise in the second halves of the preseason games. Maybe he is someone the Chiefs like enough to put on the practice squad.

Johnson was not going to be on the 53-man roster, so this was predictable. It also keeps the hopes of Jamell Fleming alive.

Unfortunately, the Fleming hope is now extinguished. We still have 14 more cuts to go.

Reeves looked very good in the preseason, but couldn’t crack a very deep running back depth chart. He would be a great fit on the practice squad.

Smith is likely going to the practice squad, showing some skills that are worth developing.

Randolph made a very strong impression on the Chiefs this preseason. He could be a nice project.

This was the easy cut of the five tight ends. Do the Chiefs now cut O’Shaughnessy or Travis, or do they keep four?

Another predictable cut. Staten could be another guy the Chiefs would like to put on the practice squad.

Some believed he would be a nice backup to Eric Fisher. Apparently, Kansas City has some different ideas.

With Munyer’s release, it tells you the Chiefs are likely going with seven on the active roster.

With King out, the Chiefs have all but solidified their six defensive linemen.

Both Knile Davis and De’Anthony Thomas made it. We have our 53… for now.

We will continue to update all the cuts right here!
