Who's Next?

Wednesday the Chiefs cut ties with Ty Law, James Reed, Kendrell Bell and Jason Dunn. With the start of free agency looming Friday, Chiefs head coach Herm Edwards has some more decisions to make. What other players get the axe? We think we've figured it out.

Potential Offensive Cuts:


WR Samie Parker - If Parker follows the same path as veteran Eddie Kennison, who was cut Tuesday, that leaves only Jeff Webb, Bobby Sippio and last year's first round pick Dwayne Bowe. That grouping won't be enough to fill the needs of Chan Gailey's offense, so expect the Chiefs to add at least one more wide receiver through the draft or free agency.

TE Kris Wilson - He lost his starting job to a converted linebacker, Boomer Grigsby, towards the end of the season. But don't feel too bad for him - the free agent class at tight end is so bad he's one of the best on the market.

WR Eddie Drummond - Awful performance on special teams last season.

QB Damon Huard - The Chiefs have done their homework on a bevy of quarterbacks entering the 2008 draft class. They spent time with Louisville's young gunslinger, Brian Brohm, at the NFL combine. What does that mean for Huard?


Potential Defensive Cuts:

DT Ron Edwards - He was someone who had to be re-signed last season prior to the NFL draft, due to KC's lack of depth at defensive tackle. But when the Chiefs drafted Turk McBride and Tank Tyler, it was apparent he would only be around for another year.

LB Keyaron Fox - He has some game, but likely won't get his chance in Kansas City. Fox might be better suited in a 3-4 defense. The Chiefs could bring him back if the free agent market doesn't prove profitable.

CB Benny Sapp - He has talent, but has never been able to stay focused enough to be a productive, every-game starter at cornerback.

S Greg Wesley - The team tried to trade him last year before the start of the regular season but could not close the deal on the two suitors (Denver and Houston) that showed the most interest to him.
