Kansas City Chiefs trim roster down to 85 players

The Kansas City Chiefs had until 4:00 p.m. ET to trim their roster down to 85 players in an effort to meet the NFL’s imposed deadline. And they’ve made the necessary moves in order to make it down to 85 rostered players.

On Tuesday, Kansas City waived defensive lineman Austin Edwards and wide receiver Devin Gray per Herbie Teope of The Kansas City Star. This comes a day after the club announced four others getting waived: wide receivers Omar Bayless and Gary Jennings, offensive tackle Evin Ksiezarczyk and cornerback Lonnie Johnson Jr

Those Monday moves, combined with the official signing of interior defensive lineman Danny Shelton, moved the roster total to 87 heading into Tuesday. As a result, the Tuesday cuts of Edwards and Gray were all the Chiefs needed in order to reach their required total.

Their next preseason game is Saturday, August 20th against the Washington Commanders.
