Recall On That 90-man Roster: Chiefs Cut 4 players

The Chiefs made some roster moves on Thursday, releasing 4 players from their roster, and dropping the roster to 86 names with 78 players under contract.

The surprise release would be LB Cory Greenwood, one of their best special teams players in the past two seasons. But the new regime sent him packing along with FB Patrick DiMarco, QB Alex Tanney and OL Bryan Mattison.

Last season, Greenwood was second on the team with six tackles in the kicking game and in three years had 34 special teams stops. He played in 48 games over the 2010-12 seasons with the Chiefs.

DiMarco was added to the active roster for the last 5 games of the 2012 season, after signing with the team as a free agent in training camp. He spent the first 12 weeks of the season on the Chiefs practice squad.

Mattison was on the active roster for 4 games last season. He signed with the team on September 26 after the season-ending injury suffered by C Rodney Hudson.

Tanney was signed last year as an undrafted free agent out of Division III Monmouth College in Illinois. He went to the injured reserve list at the end of the pre-season with a ligament injury on his passing hand.

The decisions make obvious that the Chiefs did not feel the players would improve the competition level on the team.

    Trick Shot Tanney will go down with Bobby Sippio and R-Kal Truluck as Chiefs players who I wish stuck around longer.

    Agree with you, Dio. Would have liked to see Tanney get a chance to develop under a QB friendly coach like Andy Reid.
