Chiefs waived/failed physical RB Akeem Hunt.

It appears the Chiefs are moving on from Hunt instead of trying to stash him on injured reserve via the waived/injured designation. Hunt ended the 2017-18 season on injured reserve with an ankle injury. He touched the ball 12 times in 15 games last season and pitched in on special teams. A fourth-year UDFA, Hunt turned 25 in February. He will try to get healthy and hunt for reserve work.

Chiefs waived DL Rakeem Nunez-Roches.

It is a somewhat surprising move considering the Chiefs tendered Nunez-Roches as a restricted free agent in March. Perhaps they will look to bring him back at less than the $1.9 million he was owed.
May 8 - 11:08 AM

Chiefs OL Cameron Erving will compete for an interior position.

Erving has the ability to play all five positions but doesn't perform well at any of them. It's possible he wins a starting spot over LG Bryan Witzmann, but Erving will likely open the year as a utility sub for a team that's lacking quality on their interior line.
Apr 20 - 12:51 PM

The Chiefs hosted free agent OT Cornelius Lucas.

It's the first interest in Lucas this offseason. Lucas has appeared in just six games since 2015 and was limited to one spot start with the Rams last year. He would be a depth signing in Kansas City.
Apr 11 - 5:02 PM

Colts signed CB Kenneth Acker, formerly of the Chiefs.

Acker played 209 nondescript snaps for Kansas City last season and visited the Seahawks along with the Colts this spring. In Indy, the 6'/195 former sixth-rounder will provide depth should he make the final 53-man roster.
Apr 11 - 9:33 AM

Free agent RB Kerwynn Williams worked out for the Chiefs.

Williams drew six starts for Arizona last year but was mostly ineffective, averaging just 3.6 yards per carry with one touchdown over 130 touches (120 carries, 10 catches). He'd give KC some backfield depth behind starter Kareem Hunt.
Apr 6 - 4:55 PM

Bills signed CB Phillip Gaines, formerly of the Chiefs.

BuffaloBills.com reports Gaines will compete in the slot. That's where Gaines primarily played in Kansas City, though he was amongst the league's worst defensive players. The Bills will be in trouble if Gaines ends up as one of their top three corners.
Mar 29 - 4:27 PM

Rams signed ILB Ramik Wilson, formerly of the Chiefs.

A 2015 fourth-rounder, Wilson has played more than 130 snaps one time in three years. He will provide depth/options at a soft spot for the Rams' defense.
Mar 22 - 7:16 PM

Free agent WR Kendall Wright is visiting the Chiefs on Thursday.

Wright spent last season with the Bears, catching 59 passes for 614 yards and a touchdown. With Albert Wilson now in Miami, the Chiefs need an option in the slot, and Wright would be a good, low-cost way to fill the gap. Unfortunately, Wright would have a difficult time finding fantasy value behind Tyreek Hill, Sammy Watkins, and Travis Kelce in the pecking order.
Mar 22 - 8:30 AM

The Chiefs are hosting free agent RB Damien Williams.

Kansas City may be targeting a replacement for incumbent passing-down back Charcandrick West, although Williams wouldn't necessarily be an upgrade. Williams has averaged 3.6 yards per carry in his four-year career and isn't particularly dynamic after the catch. He wouldn't threaten Kareem Hunt's workload.
Mar 19 - 4:34 PM

The Chiefs hosted Cardinals restricted free agent DT Xavier Williams over the weekend.

The Cardinals tendered Williams at the original-pick level. Because he went undrafted out of Northern Iowa, Arizona would receive no compensation if the Chiefs signed Williams to an offer sheet and the Cards failed to match. Williams is a run-stopping nose tackle at 6-foot-2, 320. The Chiefs appear to be moving on from disappointing free agent NT Bennie Logan.
Mar 18 - 4:59 PM

Free agent RB Thomas Rawls is visiting the Chiefs on Friday.

Rawls wasn't tendered an offer as a restricted free agent by the Seahawks earlier this week. He's been absolutely dreadful since his 2015 broken ankle but ran behind one of the worst offensive lines in Seattle.
Mar 16 - 9:39 AM

Bears signed QB Tyler Bray, formerly of the Chiefs.

Along with Chase Daniel, Bray is another ex-Chief who has experience in new coach Matt Nagy's offense and can help sophomore Mitch Trubisky.
Mar 16 - 9:15 AM

ESPN's Jeff Darlington reports the Chiefs are "an option" for free agent QB Matt Moore.

Kansas City needs a veteran backup behind Patrick Mahomes, and Moore is one of the better ones available. The Chiefs have also been linked with Chad Henne.
Mar 15 - 11:16 AM

ESPN's Jeff Darlington reports free agent QB Chad Henne will visit the Chiefs on Thursday.

Henne will visit the Titans in the morning before heading to Kansas City, assuming, of course, he does not get a deal from Tennessee. The veteran backup has also been linked with the Dolphins.
Mar 15 - 10:50 AM

Texans agreed to terms with OL Zach Fulton, formerly of the Chiefs.

Per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the deal will pay him $7.5 million annually. Fulton played multiple positions along the line in KC but the Texans are expected to use him exclusively at center. He should be a solid upgrade on last year's starter Nick Martin, who earned PFF's No. 33 center grade out of 38 qualifiers in 2017.
Mar 14 - 10:30 AM

Browns signed CB Terrance Mitchell, formerly of the Chiefs, to a three-year, $12 million contract.

A journeyman for much of his career, Mitchell saw significant snaps in the Chiefs' secondary last year while filling in for an injured Steven Nelson. He gives Cleveland some depth behind starters Jason McCourty and Jamar Taylor.
Mar 14 - 10:17 AM

Dolphins signed WR Albert Wilson, formerly of the Chiefs, to a three-year, $24 million contract.

Miami was thought to be the "front-runner," and they got the deal done on Tuesday. Wilson broke out for 42 catches, 554 yards, and three scores as primarily a slot receiver for the Chiefs last season, a spot the Dolphins need help following the Jarvis Landry trade. Wilson is unlikely to see the same volume as Landry, but this is still a great landing spot for his fantasy prospects.
Mar 13 - 9:43 AM

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports the Packers, Chiefs and Bears are interested in free agent Sammy Watkins.

Rapsheet has also linked the Bears and Pack to Allen Robinson. CBS' Jason La Canfora reported Sunday that the Rams were "working actively" to re-sign Watkins but it's quite possible the market quickly gets away from them. The Bears have the cap space and dire need to make a huge offer.

Mar 12 - 1:55 PM

CBS' Jason La Canfora reports free agent Muhammad Wilkerson will visit the Redskins after the Chiefs.

Wilkerson is making the rounds, which means he isn't receiving great offers, or at least what he was hoping for. Washington will be Wilkerson's fourth visit, while La Canfora reports "several" other teams hope for an audience.
