News: Chiefs Waive Four Players

The Kansas City Chiefs waived four players today: LS Thomas Gafford, WR CJ Jones, DT TJ Jackson and LB Darrell Robertson.

Only Gafford, who served as long snapper in nine games, and Jackson, appeared in four games, were on the Chiefs roster last season.

Jones was signed this offseason after he spent time on the 53-man roster of the Patriots last season.  He started his college career at Garden City (Kan.) Community College before moving on to be a starter at Iowa.

Robertson was also signed this offseason after spending last year on the New England practice squad.  He spent his college years at Georgia Tech under current Chiefs offensive coordinator Chan Gailey.

None of these moves comes as a huge shock.  Gafford was expendable after the Chiefs signed Tanner Purdum in April, Jones is a journeyman and Jackson failed to impress in his four games last season.  The only mild surprise is Robertson.  Not only did he have the much desired “Pioli connection” from his time in New England, but he also was well known by Gailey.  The Chiefs roster currently sits at 81 and will need to be cut by one before training camp starts.
