Chiefs Cut Down To Final 53

In addition to David Amerson, the Chiefs will release longtime depth cog Frank Zombo.

The outside linebacker’s been in Kansas City since the Andy Reid regime began in 2013. He started 11 games in 2016, when Justin Houston missed most of the season with knee trouble, but will not be part of the 2018 team. The Chiefs drafted Breeland Speaks in the second round and plan to use 2017 second-rounder Tanoh Kpassagnon more extensively than they did last season.

Here’s the full list of players who won’t be on Kansas City’s initial 53-man roster.

B.J. Daniels, Makinton Dorleant Suspended

Free agent running back/wide receiver B.J. Daniels has been suspended four weeks, and free agent cornerback Makinton Dorleant has been banned for one week, according to veteran NFL reporter Howard Balzer (Twitter links).B.J. Daniels (vertical)

Daniels, 27, was a collegiate quarterback at South Florida but has had a difficult time finding a home in the NFL, vacillating between running back and wideout. He hasn’t been able to stick with a club, either, as he’s spent time with six different teams since entering the league in 2013. Most recently, Daniels was thought to be in contention for the Falcons’ third running back job, but an injury ended that hope.

Dorleant, meanwhile, appeared in four games for the Packers in 2016 after going undrafted out of Northern Iowa. He’d spent most of the season on injured resrve prior to that, however, and was placed back on IR in January. Dorleant, whose arrest is most likely tied to a March arrest for public intoxication, has worked out for the Bills, Chiefs, and Jets over the past month.
