The Kansas City Chiefs continued to shuffle their roster on Tuesday by signing WR Quinten Lawrence to the practice squad a day after he was released from the active roster.
Lawrence saw duty in six games with Kansas City in 2009, returning 16 kickoffs for 317 yards. The Carencro, Louisiana native played collegiately at McNeese State, catching 99 passes for 1,905 yards with 15 TDs. The Chiefs released DT Garrett Brown from the club’s practice squad.
The shuttle between the active roster and practice squad continues for Lawrence. Todd Haley’s offense is the only one the second-year wide receiver has ever known which makes him the ideal practice squad candidate.
It is a shame to see a big potential kid like Brown get his walking papers so quickly. With so few options in the middle, he looked like a player that had the inside track on one of those last spots on the 53 man roster and at worst be in a position to continue his development on the practice squad.
To me it would have made more sense to swap Lawrence for fellow WR Verran Tucker.
