Kennison came to the Chiefs midway through the 2001 season. After a turbulent stay at Denver, Kennison was released but found a home in Kansas City under former head coach Dick Vermeil.
After some initial struggles, Kennison spent the next six seasons as KC's best wide receiver. He set personal bests in 2005, catching 68 passes for 1,102 yards, with five touchdowns.
Kennison's 2008 salary was set at $2.5 million. The Chiefs saved approximately $1.5 million by releasing him.
Warpaint Illustrated has also confirmed that center Casey Wiegmann, a starter with the Chiefs since 2001, won't be re-signed. Wiegmann hit unrestricted free agency this offseason.
