Chiefs shaking it up

By Bill Williamson

When a team is 1-7, shakeups are to be expected.

And the Chiefs are shaking it up.

The Kansas City Star is reporting the Chiefs cut cornerback Stanford Routt and coach Romeo Crennel has replaced himself as defensive coordinator with linebackers coach Gary Gibbs.

Routt replaced Brandon Carr, who the Chiefs chose not to re-sign.

Crennel chose not to hire a defensive coordinator when he was promoted to permanent coach from being the interim coach.

I will have more thoughts on these moves and their meaning later.
