The Chiefs cut four players on Friday. None were major figures on the team.

The team cut long-snapper Thomas Gafford, who played in nine games last season. Earlier this offseason, the team cut J.P. Darche, another long-snapper, earlier this offseason. The only exclusive long-snapper Kansas City currently has on the roster is Tanner Purdum. He is an undrafted free agent from Baker.

The other three players Kansas City cut were receiver C.J. Jones, defensive tackle T.J. Jackson and linebacker Darrell Robertson. Jackson played in four games for Kansas City last season.

The Kansas City Chiefs signed one of their more important free agents, safety Jon McGraw.

McGraw, a key special-teams player, will be entering his third season with Kansas City and his eighth NFL season.

The Chiefs also signed linebacker Darrell Robertson, who was on New England's practice squad last season. He had 11.5 sacks during his collegiate career at Georgia Tech and he will have a chance to make the Chiefs' roster. The team is in dire need of pass-rushers.

The Chiefs still have plenty of salary-cap room remaining and are considering several free agents, particularly on defense.

Meanwhile, former Chiefs quarterback Damon Huard had some interesting things to say during a Seattle radio interview. Huard, who the Chiefs did not want to bring back, signed with San Francisco this week.
