The Kansas City Chiefs roster needs to be reduced to 75 players from 90 by 3:00 p.m. on Tuesday. It looks like GM John Dorsey and head coach Andy Reid don’t plan on waiting until the deadline to make those cuts.
According to his agent, WR Terrance Copper is the first of fifteen cuts coming in the next couple of days.
Copper, a special teams standout since coming to the Chiefs in 2009, was fighting to hold on as the final receiver. He faced an uphill battle to make the final roster and wasn’t on our latest predictions.
Since coming into the league in 2004, Copper has yet to be without a team and I find it hard to believe that will start now. There is always a market for great special teams players that are good in the locker room, putting the veteran in solid position to find work again.
One team to watch is the Pittsburgh Steelers. Former Chiefs head coach Todd Haley is a fan of Copper’s and the Steelers offensive coordinator would no doubt push hard to find a way to get him to Pittsburgh.
