AFC West: Nate Swift


Posted by ESPN.com’s Bill Williamson


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:
