The Chiefs have released safety Steven Terrell, according to Terez A. Paylor of the Kansas City Star (via Twitter). The 26-year-old signed with the organization back in July.
The former undrafted free agent out of Texas A&M got an extended look from Kansas City during the preseason, and he ultimately compiled 17 tackles in four games. However, the organization was already eyeing a logjam at safety, and Terrell was seemingly the odd man out. The organization is now rostering three safeties behind starters Ron Parker and Eric Berry, including Daniel Sorensen, Eric Murray, and Leon McQuay III.
Terrell had spent the past three seasons in Seattle, and he had a bit of a breakout in 2016. After having appeared in 16 games between 2014 and 2015, the safety appeared in 16 games (five starts) in 2016, finishing with a career-high in tackles (27). Terrell has also spent time with the Jaguars and Texans.
