Ex-Chiefs Out of WorkSeptember 12th, 2009 by Lee Eldridge
Heard an interesting tidbit yesterday. Was listening to an interview with Chiefs’ general manager Scott Pioli. He said that the Chiefs have released 30 players who were on the roster at the end of 2008, and only two of them are now with other NFL teams. And that includes Tony Gonzalez.
Wow. That’s 28 players who were good enough to play for the Chiefs and nobody else! Now a few of those guys will still end up getting jobs like safety Bernard Pollard. The Chiefs also sustained a ton of injuries last year, and were forced to continue to add available players to their roster. That’s not completely their fault. But it says a lot about the talent level of this team last year when these guys can’t get jobs with other teams.
