Kansas City Chiefs waive an OLB, sign a former divisional rival to take his spot


Although teams aren’t forced to trim down their training camp roster to 75 players until August 26th, over two weeks away, the Chiefs are wasting no time handing out pink slips and sending players to the waiver wire.

According to ESPN’s Adam Teicher, the Chiefs have waived veteran OLB Dezman Moses. In turn, they signed OLB Devan Walker, a former Charger.

Moses, who Kansas City signed during camp nearly one year ago, racked up a mere five tackles while being active for a total of 13 games in 2014. As a rookie in 2012, though, the former Packer pieced together a very impressive campaign with 27 tackles and four sacks.

Walker, who the Chiefs signed following Moses’ release, was an undrafted free agent in 2013 out of Southeastern Louisiana and spent training camp with the Chargers, prior to being added to injury reserve last season.

With Moses’ departure, expect OLB Josh Martin to see an expanded role as the full-time backup OLB behind Justin Houston.
