NFL Roster Cuts: Kansas City Chiefs Release Seven Players

The Chiefs on Friday evening released seven players.

By Saturday at 5:00 p.m., they will need to go from 75 players to 53 players.

Here are the players released:

  • TE Leroy Banks
  • WR Rich Gunnell
  • C Lemuel Jeanpierre
  • G/T Ikechuku Ndukwe
  • CB Mike Richardson
  • LB John Russell
  • G Dan Santucci

There are only two slight surprises on that list: Ndukwe and Richardson.

Ndukwe was the second team guard and most figured he had a decent chance to make the roster. Richardson was on the team last year as a special teamer.
