This weekend the Kansas City Chiefs can start talking with free agents around the league. Before those discussions kick off, GM John Dorsey made a couple minor roster moves, cutting ties with TE Dominique Jones and and LB Robert James.
Jones was promoted to the 53-man roster at the end of last season before landing on the reserve/non-football illness list. He was one of the many player head coach Andy Reid tried to use as injuries constantly rattled the Kansas City offense at tight end. He appeared in two games for the Chiefs without catching a pass.
The Chiefs added James to the active roster just days before their playoff loss to the Indianapolis Colts. A fifth-round pick of the Falcons in 2008, James saw action in 18 games during three seasons in Atlanta, including all 16 in 2012.
Both players represent positions of need for the Chiefs this offseason, so we shouldn’t expect to see either back in Kansas City.
