The Chiefs on Monday released six players: RB Kolby Smith, QB Matt Gutierrez, TE Leroy Banks, OL Jermail Porter, DB Andre Jones and OL Nick Landry.â†µ
None of the players are a big surprise but the number (six) does indicate rookie signings are on their way.â†µ
The Chiefs are allowed to have 80 players under contract. Currently, they have 73. Not so coincidentally, the Chiefs have seven rookies to sign.â†µ
That means you can expect the Chiefs to start announcing the signings of some of these rookies.â†µ
The late round picks will start first then we'll make our way down to first round pick Eric Berry.
