NFL roster cuts: Several former Kansas City Chiefs among players released
By Matt Conner
Ron Parker spent the last half decade with the Chiefs in their secondary, starting every single game for the last four years except for one and serving as their full-time free safety as recently as last year. The Chiefs decided to go young at several positions this offseason and released Parker in the process, but he landed a new role with the Atlanta Falcons in June. Unfortunately that lasted two months and Parker is now back on the open market. [UPDATE: Parker is re-signing with the Chiefs.]
Steven Terrell, Tennessee Titans
The Titans signed Steven Terrell earlier this offseason after he enjoyed a decent season with the Chiefs as a special teams ace and secondary depth. Terrell’s season ended with an injury but teams were able to see what he brings to the table for most of the season. However the Titans decided to go other directions for the regular season, so we’ll see if Terrell turns up elsewhere.
Devine Redding, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
The Kansas City Chiefs had Devine Redding on the roster as their running back in development last offseason but ultimately let him go after placing him on the practice squad for a few days. He only recently signed with the Bucs as a camp body to get through the final preseason game and was released just as quickly.
The Kansas City Chiefs bolstered their defensive line with the addition of Kendall Reyes two years ago after watching him play across from them with the Chargers for several years. These days, however, Reyes is having a harder time finding significant playing time after sitting all of last season as a free agent and now being cut by the Jets in what may be a last gasp in the NFL.
