There’s been some roster juggling in the AFC West on Monday.
ESPN’s Chris Mortensen is reporting the Chiefs have signed receiver Bobby Wade.
Wade played for Kansas City coach Todd Haley in Chicago and the Chiefs have a big need for receivers. Wade was a surprise cut in Minnesota last week. Wade is an experienced player, who should be able to help the Chiefs right away.
Meanwhile, the Chargers cut fourth-round pick Gartrell Johnson to make room for defensive end Andre Coleman.
The Chargers liked Johnson, a big downhill runner. But he was the team’s fourth tailback. The Chargers will likely put Johnson on the practice squad if he slips through waivers Tuesday. Coleman was on San Diego’s practice squad the past two years. He gives the Chargers some depth Monday night. They are banged up at defensive end with starter Jacques Cesaire not expected to play against Oakland on Monday night.
Oakland cut defensive tackle William Joseph for the second time in a week to make room for Richard Seymour, who is expected to play extensively Monday night.
