Chiefs Slice 4 From Roster

The Chiefs are getting ready to announce the undrafted college free agents they have signed, and to do that, they needed to whittle away at their roster to create some room. They released four players on Tuesday.

The only name of note in the group was quarterback Terrelle Pryor, once a supplemental draft choice by the Oakland Raiders out of Ohio State University. The Chiefs are the third team where he’s washed out, after Oakland and Seattle.

Also getting their walking papers were linebacker JoJo Dickson, long snapper Jorgen Hus and wide receiver Corbin Louks.

With Pryor gone, the Chiefs now have four quarterbacks, and they’ll likely add another one before the start of training camp given the physical status of Tyler Bray after he suffered a torn ACL back in January.

    Signed early in process, cut before training camp. Wonder what the thought process was/is?

    Apparently they were not impressed. Plus, word is they signed Bo Wallace of Ole Miss.


  • May 5, 2015  - el cid says:

    I agree but what do you think they were not impressed with? Doubt he had a uniform yet, maybe he used someone’s toilet not reserved for roster members? Or parked in Andy’s spot or ate Andy’s lunch? The mental images are endless.

    I hear ya, last I heard he was in the building everyday working his rear off. You are probably right, the guy is athletic enough he just can’t read.

    Personally I think they treated Pryor rather poorly. Would have been nice if they kept him around to atleast take a few snaps and see what he could have done. Kinda like getting a job and then getting the call “don’t come in” your fired. Makes no sense whatsoever.

    I’m going to miss many of you guys but I’m tapping out on the Chiefs. Why? Jr Hunt is an entitled rich kid moron whose ego will never allow the football people to do their jobs without feeling they need to kiss his ass on big decisions.

    This leads to fear and, ultimately, bad decisions and moves. Why? Andy is a good coach but has blind spots, especially with Alex Smith who has or never will take his team down a long field for a winning score in crunch time.

    Not that you care, but I live fairly close to Nashville and, as hard as it
    will be after several decades invested
    with my hometown Chiefs, I’m jumping the f-ing shark as they say. Good luck to all here.

    Oh, RW, get a grip. “Entitled Kid Moron”? The first you ever read about? I don’t think you see what’s happening. Reid and Dorsey are taking over. Jr is backing off.

    What in the Hell do you want RW. We are building. Hunt is backing off. He has gone from 4 foot two to, shorter.

    Dorsey/Reid runs this team. Best since, and maybe better, than Peterson/Marty.

    Why leave now?

    RW do what you have/need to. At my age, every off spring, I keep telling my self I am done with the stupidity of being an NFL fan. Fully believe there is an expiration date stamp on fans feet and the next guy, younger guys have to step up and be crazy. Yet here I sit, after a visit to the VA today, sitting is all I can do.

    Best wishes and remember it is supposed to be the toys in the attic of the brain…. anything else is nuts.

    TO THE PERSON WHO KIDNAPED EL CID: “toys in the attic of the brain…anything else is nuts”. Dude, keep him going like this and I might change my mind and actually pay a ransom. Not much, mind you, but something.

    Tell cid that just coming back from the VA is a moment to reflect upon. Less than 1% of Americans can say that. And way less if you read a paper. Less than 30% of Americans would qualify to go where he has been.

    Sitting is all he can do? That’s sixteen games, at least. Tell him it’s OK even when all he can do is lay there. Lenny Dawson is on the radio.

    R W; We will miss you. I feel that way sometimes but I have stuck with the Chiefs thru thick and thin. None of us agree with all their decisions but I do know that the salary cap kinda controls what they are able to do. Go Chiefs!!!!


  • May 7, 2015  - R W says:

    Last post for mainly those who might question my authenticity. The Chiefs got into my blood many ways. I went to the preseason camps at Wm Jewell in Liberty. I leaned over the picket fence to talk with Jerry Mays on what benefits he was getting from his rope-pull isometric device.

    I also hanged at Zites in the 60s..a niteclub just south of Bannister on the Blue Ridge Parkway. It was a big player loaf spot at that time. Yeah, I’ll namedrop some here.

    Fred Arbanas was a good dude. Rough around the edges? Yes, but notable all the time. He and I once tabled with Ed Budde, a great guy, who treated me as an equal to all those wanting their attention.

    Anyway, this is hard to walk away from after nearly 50 years. But……., but….., write your own finish. I’m out.


  • May 7, 2015  - Johnfromwichita says:

    RW, RW and RW. After only 50 years. Damn, another fair weather fan.

    Wimp.

    Wait until you sniff the air in September. You’ll hear the sound of pads hitting, smell the grills a glowing and see nothing but red. I can already remember the taste of a Sam Adams at 8:30 in the parking lot of Arrowhead.

    See you then.

    Turns out Pryor is just as knot headed as Tebow. Both of these guys would be fun to watch. They both have the talent to play in the league, just not as a QB.


  • May 9, 2015  - el cid says:

    Back to Pryor, I had hoped he would be a good enough backup to replace Daniel. Nothing to do with either kid but Daniel is to darned expensive and we will need that money as the roster develops.

    Seahawks are having issues, they drafted and UDFA kids who won their super bowl and made them a power in the NFC. Now they got to pay for the second contract. Unlike the Chiefs with Houston, they are holding out signing a deal with Wilson the star QB, will take over 100 mill for 4 years to sign him up and they are balking…. why? Because there will be no money to pass around to the other 21 starters. Not to mention 4-5 starters due with Wilson. We seem stuck with overpaying a super, super star and running out of money for other.

    You are looking at the winner of the signed Priest Holmes jersey from Chiefs Kingdom Awards. Awesome!!!!
    Now I can look as cool as my buddy JohnfromWichita!

    Go CHIEFS!

    I’ll miss ya RW. I’m a little confused by your Clark Hunt reference. We all have our reasons for walking away. To have passion for something for so long with little comfort and joy in return. Well, it can eventually become overwhelming.

    This old camels back of mine has been on the brink of fracturing for many a season. Oh well, I must love the pain. I’ll probably end up taking this team with me when I’m six feet under.

    Sounds like we grew up in the same neighborhood. The 60′s was a great time to meet and shake hands with the players. (before they were treated like gods and worked 2 jobs)

    I digress.
    Go Chiefs.


  • May 9, 2015  - Johnfromwichita says:

    BigJim, way to go. Now we can pass as twins. Except I’m forty years older and you’re five feet taller.

    Well we can tell everybody that asks that Mom was feeling a little off that night. Actually, a lot off.

    Really, I wear Priest’s jerseys because it might be my only chance to get into Heaven. That and because Holmes did not have the talent of Gayle Sayers or Barry Sanders or even Marcus Allen.

    All he had was desire. No great speed, no great size and no great moves. He just got the ball and wanted to go forward more than the defense wanted to stop him.

    Geez, if I could condense that into an epitaph upon my tombstone…

    Come to think about that, be a whole lot cheaper just to spay paint a number 31 every year.


  • May 9, 2015  - Johnfromwichita says:

    jimbo, relax. Digression and distractions are the best rewards of aging. I, too, will miss RW. But how could you walk away from a love, after fifty years?

    Imagine your fifty year with your wife. Nice restaurant. Pre-dinner drinks. And you say “sorry sweetie, I’m done with you”. Hope to hell someone will call 911 but don’t count on it.

    If you want to be a fan than you need to be a fan. Know a guy that changes “favorite team” every three years. That’s not a fan; that’s an idiot.

    RW will be back before the start of the season. You cannot walk away from fifty years of red and gold. But trust me on this: I will be on his ass!

    If I can raise enough for cid’s ransom, ( am hopeing he’ll help.


  • May 9, 2015  - FlintTipFan says:

    Cid I agree, Chase needs to go but he needs to be replaced by one of the young QBs stepping up, not by signing a QB that hasn’t caught on anywhere else. I believe they were hoping they could convince Pryor to change positions and after he refused they let him go.


  • May 9, 2015  - ObscureDave says:

    Could Dorsey and Reid know that they need Daniel’s cap dollars by the start of the season and intend to cut him by then if needed. But they are hanging on until September in the hope that a QB hungry team will offer a trade before they have to pull the trigger? If so, good for them.

    Risky to enter the season with Murray and Bray as backups? Yes. But the Donkeys have played three seasons with a backup that has thrown maybe twenty passes in his career. So not unheard of.

    Time will tell.
