Roster Cuts / 53 Man roster - asskickingboots - 08-31-2019

No word yet on any roster cuts yet alone the 53 man roster, but some related news nonetheless.

The Chiefs have traded UDFA CB Mark Fields to the Vikings. No word yet on compensation, but getting anything out of a UDFA is almost universally a good thing.

EDIT: Conditional 2021 7th round pick, probably based on being on the roster through 2019 or a certain number of weeks.

It's always good when you can maybe get something for a guy that was gonna get cut.

Cody Thompson didn't make the cut. This most likely means our receivers are Hill, Watkins, D-Rob, Hardman, DAT, and Pringle. Thompson could be on our practice squad.

Khalil McKenzie was cut. His dad works in Miami, so that's probably what's going to happen.

Traded hyde to the texans for Rankin a g/t that would have been cut.

Probably why mckenzie was released. Good enough deal for us but I still hate the signing bonus we gave to hyde.

Yeah, but he's fuckin' gone.  Let the Darwin Thompson era begin!

We saved something like $700k guaranteed money we wouldn't have gotten if we cut him, so this is a goddamn miracle!

Plus, NOLA is right. This officially makes it Darwin Thompson chance to get some playing time early.

Going to be some changes for sure, but most of this is as expected. Chad Henne had to be on the roster week 1 so he could be IR with possibility of return. I doubt we waste one of our returns on him, but it's smart to set him up to return if necessary.

Jeff Allen was a mild surprise cut, but he was expendable after trading for Rankin from the Texans. Still, he could be back after Henne comes off the roster, but DAT is getting added back too following a suspension. Not sure how the math will work, especially if there's a trade yet to come later this weekend (very possible).

Both Tremon Smith and Byron Pringle making it is a little bit of a surprise. I figured they were both competing for one returner spot.

Also, let's face it, Veach is going to poach someone that got cut elsewhere, which knocks someone off this roster.

I imagine that hennes spot is filled by allen in a day or so. Then a different ol or a d lineman (ivie maybe) gets cut for a pickup from the cut lists. When DAT gets back I figure that ends Smith's time on the roster.

Chiefs are signing Shady McCoy for too damn much money, $3M guaranteed, per Adam Schefter.

This is a combination nostalgia signing and a spite signing because the other team interested was the as of yet Gordon-less Chargers (they granted Gordon the opportunity to seek trades). I think this is a mistake, but it's also kind of hilarious just to piss in the Bolts' eyes.

Shady has been awful the last couple years, but I wouldn't be completely shocked to see him have a mini-resurgence under Reid.

I'm guessing this means Darrell Williams or Tremon Smith is gone. Might be delayed a week depending upon when Henne gets taken off the roster, but one of them will be gone.
