    Default Roster Cuts


    0 Not allowed!
    Does anyone know when the roster cuts are coming. I know the first one has to be soon (this Monday maybe). If you have the dates for the other cuts, that would be much appreciated as well.

    Im looking at the roster, and I am not sure who is going to get cut. Unfortunately, not because we have a lot of depth, but because after the starters, I cannot tell who is worse. That is especially so with spots like the OL and WRs. I think we only keep 6 WRs and that is ONLY if one of them is a KR or PR.

    Right now, this is what I see, come start of season:

    WR - D.Boye, A. Toomer, A. Lelie or
    LT - B. Albert, H. Taylor
    LG - B. Waters, Wade Smith or Colin Brown
    C - Niswanger, Ghiaciuc
    RG - Goff, Alleman
    RT - D. Mac/Ndukwe
    TE - Sean Ryan, Cottam
    WR - Darling, Bradley, Engram
    QB - Cassel, Croyle, Thigpen
    RB - LJ, Battle, J. Charles
    FB - Mike Cox

    LE - TJ, Boone
    NT - Edwards, Tank
    RE - Dorsey, Magee
    LOLB - Vrabel, Studebaker??
    LILB - DJ, Beisel
    RILB - Zach Thomas/Corey Mays, D. Williams
    ROLB - Tamba Hali, McBride
    LCB - B. Flowers, Leggett, D. Washington
    RCB - Carr, Colclough
    SS - Pollard, Brown
    FS - Page, McGraw

    K - Succop
    P - Colquitt
    LS - Gafford

    That is 53 exactly. But, I dont know who of that bunch could return kicks other than Jamaal Charles.

    Im not sure if those 5 WRs are the ones we keep. They are the biggest names, but Im not sure if they are living up to the job.

    The ones with ? next to them, are because Im not sure they will make the final cut. If we see someone good on the waiver wire, they may be the ones to see the door to make room.

    Yes, I put Z. Thomas on the ? list, only because I do not think he has made it all the way through one practice. If I was the coach, and he hadnt made it through one full contact practice, I dont know why I would keep him around, "leader" or not. In the military they teach us that you cannot lead from the rear, you have to lead from the front (or lead by example). Same thing in football, you cant be the leader of the defense if you aren't ever on the field. Its tough to lead by example when you are constantly riding the exercise bike.

    Final cuts will come sometime between the last preseason game and the start of the regular season; if my understanding of the situation is correct. But, I don't know the exact deadline.

    After some searching, this is what I found. Someone please correct me if I am wrong:

    Sept 1st: First roster cut to 75 players.

    Sept 5th: Final cut to 53 players.

    Currently, I counted 80 players on the KCChiefs.com roster.

    I agree with most of your selections.....except RILB.....COREY MAYS WILL BE FIRST TEAM. Meaning there will be no competition, he has outperformed Zach.

    I agree with almost all of that, but Copper might make the team instead of Lelie. Actually I think the only safe bets at WR at this point are Bowe, Engram, Toomer, and Darling (since he's been running with the first team).

    I would love to see a solid signing off waivers. I know we won't get a star but at least someone who fits our system and can make an impact... Especially on the OL or at WR.
    GO CHIEFS!!!

    While we are talking cuts, we have 19 rookies in camp.
    Jackson, Succop and Belcher have pretty much played thier way onto the team. O'Connel might make it as the second tight end. Brown and williams will probably be on the practice squad. Lawrencee has pretty much playee his way off the team. McGee we haven't heard much about since camp started and Washingtton is the invisible man. Unless someone is making it on special teams it doesn't look good for most of our newbee's

    Here's my thoughts (in depoth chart order):

    QB - Cassel, Gutierrez, Croyle
    RB - LJ, Battle, J. Charles, Savage
    FB - Mike Cox
    WR1 - Bowe, Copper, Engram
    WR2 - Darling, Toomer, Lelie
    LT - Albert, Herb Taylor
    LG - Waters, Wade Smith
    C - Alleman, Ghiaciuc
    RG - Goff, Niswanger
    RT - Ndukwe, MacIntosh
    TE - Sean Ryan, Cottam, O'Connell

    27 total on offense.

    LE - Tyson Jackson, Boone
    NT - Edwards, Tank
    RE - Dorsey, Magee
    LOLB - Vrabel, Turk McBride
    LILB - DJ, Beisel
    RILB - Zach Thomas, Corey Mays, DeMorrio Williams
    ROLB - Tamba Hali, Studebaker
    LCB - Flowers, Leggett
    RCB - Carr, Washington
    SS - Pollard, Brown
    FS - Page, McGraw

    23 total on defense.

    K - Succop
    P - Colquitt
    LS - Gafford

    3 total on special teams.

    I think we trade Thigpen.

    Colin Brown, Belcher, Quentin Lawrence, and Javarris Williams go to the practice squad.
