Chiefs cut Feely, four others

The first cuts are in, and one may surprise you. One day after the Chiefs signed veteran kicker Jay Feely, he was released. There are conflicting reports as to why - one says there were contract complications and the other cites an undisclosed injury. More information will likely come later in the week, so stay tuned to Warpaint Illustrated.com for updates.

The other cuts include defensive ends Jonal Saint-Dic and Trevor Johnson, tackle Ken Shackleford, and defensive tackle Maurice Murray. Saint-Dic and Shackleford have already been released and resigned by the Chiefs once this offseason. They were both released after OTAs and resigned during training camp.

They, like the rest of the Chiefs cuts, will hope to be signed to either another team or a practice squad this weekend. NFL rosters had to be cut down to 75 players by 4 pm on Tuesday. The final wave of cuts, reducing rosters to 53 players, are due in by 6 pm Saturday. Teams may then sign up to eight players to their practice squad beginning noon Sunday.

The first wave of cuts is not complete for Kansas City, as their active roster still includes 76 players – that means one more was supposed to be gone by 4 pm Tuesday. Warpaint Illustrated will update you on that situation as soon as possible.

Another transaction was completed Tuesday when the Chiefs placed wide receiver and return specialist Kevin Robinson on the physically unable to perform (PUP) list. Robinson has been hampered by a knee injury throughout training camp and the preseason. He initially held out hope to suit up this year, but will probably be placed on injured reserve instead. This increases the possibility that preseason standout Dantrell Savage will make the team.
