“The Right 53” 2012 Version 2.0

The Kansas City Chiefs have made their first cuts, getting the roster down to 75 players. By the end of the week they will have to make an even bigger cut, taking the team down to 53.

Before we see which way GM Scott Pioli and head coach Romeo Crennel go with their final decisions, we decided to take our second stab at what the Chiefs roster might look like on September 9 when the Atlanta Falcons come to town.

It’s been quite a while since the Chiefs had this much talent on their roster, making for some difficult decisions.

Take a look at our predictions and see if this is “The Right 53”.
