Chiefs Find First Version of 53-Man Roster

Posted Sep 4, 2010

Take a peek at the Chiefs 53-man roster and compare it with last year's first version

The Chiefs made the necessary roster moves on Saturday evening to reach the NFL’s mandatory 53-man roster limitation.

After releasing seven players yesterday, Kansas City needed to trim its roster by 15 bodies before 5:00 PM (CST) on Saturday afternoon. The club did so today by releasing 13 players and placing two on injured reserve. The Chiefs also traded S Jarrad Page to the New England Patriots for an undisclosed draft pick.
