AFC West: Cody Slate

Chiefs cut four players

August, 29, 2010
The Kansas City Chiefs got a jump on Tuesday’s first cut day by releasing four players.

They cut quarterback Bill Stull, running back Kestahn Moore, tight end Cody Slate and offensive lineman Tyler Eastman.

None of the cuts were surprising, although Moore was with the club last season. The release of Stull might be an indication that quarterback Brodie Croyle is close to returning from an arm injury. Stull was signed two weeks ago to be a camp arm while Croyle recovered from an injury he suffered in the first preseason game.

NFC West blogger Mike Sando has an interesting look at the turnover rate of each NFL team. The Chiefs and Raiders are among the leaders in retention. A big reason is because both teams are fairly young.

Denver signed veteran fullback Kyle Eckel and cut offensive lineman Maurice Williams. Eckel is likely a long shot to make the team.

Kansas City signed undrafted rookie tight end Cody Slate. He is from Marshall.
