The Kansas City Chiefs and Denver Broncos got a head start on cutting down to the 53-man roster by Saturday’s deadline. The Chiefs cut eight players. The Broncos cut nine players.
The biggest name on the Chiefs’ list is right tackle Damion McIntosh, who previously was a starter. But McIntosh has not played well and he was on the bubble. Barry Richardson is expected to start at the spot.
The Broncos’ early cuts included two draft picks from Mike Shanahan’s final class -- guard Kory Lichtensteiger and defensive lineman Carlton Powell.
Here are Kansas City’s cut list Friday:
No. Name Pos. Ht. Wt. Age Exp. College
46 Jed Collins FB 6-1 249 23 1 Washington State
23 Travis Daniels CB 6-1 195 26 5 LSU

66 Corey Smith LB 6-1 225 22 R Cincinnati
75 Herb Taylor T 6-3 295 24 3 TCU

The Kansas City Star is reporting former Chiefs coach Marty Schottenheimer is not likely to re-join the team. Schottenheimer talked to Chiefs' ownership last week. The team is currently concentrating on New England executive Scott Pioli.
Here's an interesting interview with Chargers coach Norv Turner. He talks about the Chargers' up-and-down season and he is treated in the city of San Diego. It's a good read.
Watch out for San Diego personnel man Jimmy Raye Jr. to get looks for some of the open general manager opening. Raye has a good reputation as an up and coming evaluator and team leader.
The Broncos signed tackle Clint Oldenburg to a future contract. He has spent time with New England, the Jets and St. Louis.
