Just two days after putting together their eight player practice squad, the Kansas City Chiefs have already made one change. The team released WR Junior Hemingway and replaced him with OL Rich Ranglin.
The team felt they were heavy at wide receiver, but light at offensive line with just seven linemen on the active roster though there were already two on the practice squad.
It’s interesting to note that Hemingway, a 2012 seventh-round pick, was cut in favor of undrafted rookie Josh Bellamy. The other receiver on the practice squad is Jamar Newsome, who spent time on the Chiefs PS last season.
Once the Chiefs get settled with their 53-man roster, it shouldn’t come as a surprise if we see Hemingway again. The rookie was hampered by an injury in camp, but is familiar with the system, giving him a leg up on the other receivers on the street.
