Chiefs Release Studebaker

The Chiefs gained just over $2 million under the salary cap for the coming season on Monday with the release of LB Andy Studebaker.

The backup and special teams performer was in the final season of a 4-year, $5.89 million contract that he signed in 2009.

Since he was signed off the Philadelphia Eagles practice squad in November 2008, Studebaker has played in 70 games with 8 starts. Defensively, he had 51 total tackles, 2.5 sacks, 2 interceptions, 1 forced fumble and 1 recovered fumble. On special teams, he had 45 tackles and scored a touchdown when he recovered a fumbled punt in the end zone.

It’s hard to commit $2 million to a backup that’s not been able to advance his career in five seasons.

The Chiefs also announced the signing of LB Edgar Jones that went down more than a week ago.

    He was one of the really good guys on the Chiefs. He was a hustler who got a lot out of his limited ability. I hope he catches on with another team. I wish him the best.

    Studebaker has his chances. Had a nice career in KC for the talent he displayed. Hope he catches on with another team.

    Vol workout and Albert is reported as skipping it. No Biggee but got to be concerned about if this will effect the draft or Reid’s view of the future. Also are there attitude issues that could effect a long term contract. A Worry.
