The Kansas City Chiefs have cut their roster down to the 53 man limit for the start of the season. Here is a breakdown of how that roster looks for 2016.
The Kansas City Chiefs have completed their final cuts to get down to 53 men on their roster. Actually, the Chiefs are at a (recognized) 54 due to a roster exemption for Eric Berry. That will expire soon, but it does give the Chiefs some time to continue working trade angles. However, we do have a pretty good idea of the roster the Chiefs will field in 2016.
Expectations are high for the Chiefs in 2016. There are several pundits even picking KC as a Super Bowl contender. To be honest, those expectations are not unwarranted. The Chiefs have been a good team for the past three years, and this roster is looking pretty good.
There are some holes, of course. Every team has holes in their roster. For the Chiefs, that most notably comes at pass rusher with Justin Houston currently injured. There may also be a hole in the secondary where the Chiefs are very young and inexperienced.
There will be more roster moves to come over the next few days as the Chiefs look to fine tune some of their concerns. Already, Kansas City has worked out multiple players at various positions. That shows that John Dorsey is aware of the current status of the roster and the need to always get better. As for the current roster, Chiefs fans have a lot to be encouraged by.
