Several former Chiefs lose jobs around the NFL with roster cuts
By Matt Conner
Munyer entered the NFL with the Chiefs in 2015 as an undrafted free agent and stuck around for two years before being released. He climbed the depth chart in Arizona to play in 14 games last season and make his first NFL start. This offseason he signed with the Colts but was just released. Given the need for offensive linemen, he’s likely to find a few more tryouts before all is said and done.
The Colts were quick to take a chance on tight end Ross Travis after the Chiefs released him last year but apparently the whole basketball player turned tight end transition doesn’t work so well for everyone as it does for the likes of Tony Gonzalez.
West has tried to get work as a scatback for other teams outside of Kansas City but so far, it’s proven harder than anticipated. West returned to the Chiefs last year after being released and that’s a possibility once again if something happens to the depth chart in K.C. this season. For now, the Colts and Jets have both passed on West in recent years. It will be interesting to see where he lands next.
Charles spent all of last offseason with the Chiefs but failed to make the active roster in the end. After several NFL seasons, he was forced to sit away from the league but played well enough in the now defunct AAF to earn a look this offseason with the Falcons—one that didn’t work out in the end.
The former Chiefs kicker was facing competition from Matt Gay with the Bucs, and the team made the final call today to go with the rookie. Santos now becomes a likely first call for any team with jitters at the position.
