Chiefs Waive Rakeem Nunez-Roches, Promote Jordan Devey

Following one-plus seasons with the organization, the Chiefs have cut bait with a former draft pick. Terez A. Paylor of The Kansas City Star tweets that the team has waived defensive tackle Rakeem Nunez-Roches, replacing him with offensive lineman Jordan Devey.

Rakeem Nunez-RochesThe Southern Mississippi standout was selected by the Chiefs in the sixth round of the 2015 draft. Born in Dangriga, Belize, Nunez-Roches was the first Belizean-born NFL player. The 23-year-old played in seven games as a rookie, compiling only four tackles. The defensive tackle didn’t make an appearance during the Chiefs’ season-opener.

The team will be filling Nunez-Roches’ roster spot with Devey, who was experience playing all over the offensive line. The 28-year-old lineman has made 22 NFL appearances (13 starts) since going undrafted out of Memphis in 2013. The lineman won a Super Bowl with the Patriots in 2013, and he started four games for the team in 2014. Last summer, Devey was traded to the 49ers, and he proceeded to start a career-high nine games for the squad. The lineman was claimed by the Chiefs earlier in the 2016 offseason, and he ultimately made the team’s practice squad.
