NFL teams across the league are cutting down their rosters ahead of Tuesday’s 80-man deadline. The Kansas City Chiefs announced some notable roster cuts on Monday.
The Chiefs officially released three players and waived two on Monday.
Among the roster cuts: quarterback Anthony Gordon.
Gordon, 23, went undrafted out of Washington State in 2020. He spent part of the 2020 season with the Seattle Seahawks, but was waived in early September. Gordon signed a reserve/futures contract with the Chiefs at the start of the 2021 year.
While the quarterback looked good at times this preseason, he was one of five roster cuts on Monday.
Defensive end Taco Charlton, defensive back Will Parks, guard Bryan Witzmann and linebacker Riley Cole were also cut.
