Seventh round draft pick Junior Hemingway has been cut from the Kansas City Chiefs practice squad to make room for offensive lineman Rich Ranglin, according to the team. The move is one of need on a roster that was deep in wide receivers but weak along the offensive line.
A 6-foot-1 receiver, Hemingway was selected by the Chiefs 238th overall in the 2012 draft. Hemingway finished his 2011 college football season with 699 yards on 34 catches for the Michigan Wolverines.
Ranglin, who played at Central Connecticut State from 2003-07, was signed by Kansas City in May as an undrafted free agent but did not make the final 53-man roster.
He has spent time in the Arena Football League the past three years. The 6'2, 315 pound Ranglin was the offensive lineman of the year in 2011 while playing with the Kansas City Command, and he was most recently with the San Jose Sabercats.
