Alex Tanney may be able to hit a moving truck from his living room, but he won’t be connecting with receivers at Arrowhead Stadium.

The Chiefs cut four players including the quarterback. Tanney was on injured reserve last year after being signed as an undrafted free agent. He was never considered a NFL top prospect. Tanney, though, was a national curiosity because of a YouTube video that created a star. Tanney is a trick-shot artist and the video showed him making several incredible passes.

But that doesn’t mean anything in the NFL world.

With Tanney gone, former fifth-round pick, Ricky Stanzi, may be next on the chopping block. The Chiefs have four quarterbacks on the roster; Alex Smith, Chase Daniel, Stanzi and undrafted free agent Tyler Bray. If Bray performs well in training camp, he is expected to be the No. 3 quarterback.

The Chiefs also cut fullback Patrick DiMarco, offensive lineman Bryan Mattison and linebacker Cory Greenwood.

In another AFC West note:

In an Insider piece, Chris Sprow thinks Insider Oakland and Kansas City could be in the market for a top quarterback in the draft. I’d add the Chargers to that list if Philip Rivers has a bad year.
