The Kansas City Chiefs announced a few roster cuts on Monday.

All NFL teams must have their rosters cut to 80 players by 3pm CT on Tuesday. The Chiefs cut seven players on Monday and currently sit at 82 players on the roster.

The players that were cut were LB Eric Bakhtiari, RB Tervaris Johnson, DB Javes Lewis, WR Chris Manno, WR Josue Paul, DB Mario Russell, and WR Chandler Williams.

None of these players were all that surprising and were long shots to make the team anyways. There should be more news coming shortly on the last two players that the Chiefs need to cut in order to be at the 80 player maximum.

The final cuts for teams to get to the 53 man roster will be by Saturday, September 3rd.
