Chiefs cut 14 to get down to 75-man roster limit

Associated Press Published: August 26, 2012

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Kansas City Chiefs have released 14 players ahead of the NFL's deadline to reach the 75-man roster limit, including former Kansas tight end Tim Biere.

The Chiefs made the cuts Sunday. The deadline is Monday afternoon.

There were no major surprises as the Chiefs trimmed their roster following a 44-14 loss to Seattle last Friday night. Kansas City plays its last preseason game against Green Bay on Thursday before a final cut to the 53-man limit the following night.

Other players released by the Chiefs were fullback Shane Bannon; defensive backs Dominique Ellis and Jean Fanor; linebackers Caleb Campbell and Dexter Heyman; offensive linemen Justin Cheadle and Cam Holland; defensive end Ethan Johnson; kicker Matt Szymanski; and wide receivers Jeremy Horne, Brandon Kinnie, Zeke Markshausen and Aaron Weaver.
