Former Chiefs DL Wallace Gilberry Cut From Buccaneers

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have cut former Chiefs defensive lineman Wallace Gilberry, according to the Kansas City Star.

The lineman was popular with Chiefs fans but the line became too deep to justify keep Gilberry over a number of the younger players on the roster, especially with the potential that Allen Bailey presents at the position.

Gilberry was originally signed by the New York Giants as an undrafted free agent out of the University of Alabama, before signing with the Chiefs prior to the 2008 season. Gilberry played in 53 games overall for the Chiefs between 2008 and 2011, starting three, recording 57 tackles and 14 sacks overall. His best season came in 2010, when the lineman recorded 23 tackles, 7.0 sacks and two forced fumbles.

The Chiefs take on the Buffalo Bills Sunday, with kickoff slated for 12 p.m. CT.
