Chiefs drop Mark Bradley

More than half the league is 12 days away from the offseason, so teams are begin to prepare their rosters for the future.

And the Chiefs have decided their future doesn’t include wide receiver Mark Bradley.

Kansas City dumped the former second-round pick of the Bears Tuesday, and signed wideout Quinten Lawrence.  Bradley revived his career last year late in the season, but continually struggled with mental mistakes in 2009.  He was fourth on the team with 320 receiving yards.

The Chiefs also placed tight end Brad Cottam on injured reserve.  Cottam suffered a cracked cervical
vertebra, according to the team.  No spinal cord damage was discovered.

    Sigh…
    Mark Bradley is a talented receiver. If the Chiefs won’t hold onto him, I hope he gets into a good system somewhere and finds success.
    Quinten Lawrence has already been released twice this year…

    he was talented till his confidence was broke or somethin…he dropped pass after pass this year and most of them were sure first downs on a third down conversion…they have him a chance but he couldnt hold onto that dang ball

    Chiefs drop Mark Bradley
    Hope he didn’t get a concussion. How far did he fall?

    Terrell Suggs says when they dropped Bradley they were trying to drop him on Terrells knee.

    wow what a shocker. A guy who wasnt a good enough WR for the Bears was cut. General rule of thumb if you arent good enough to start on the Bears offense you probably couldn’t play in Canada

    Is this the type of genius we got when we hired Pioli?
    I am unimpressed.

    Hopefully Bobby Wade isn’t far behind him.

    Not much of a shocker, Bradley has been dismal all season. He was showing some flashes when KC was rolling with Thigpen and the spread offense. Perhaps Cleveland could give him a shot. Moh-Mass, Stallworth, Bradley sounds serviceable.
    Next year, looks interesting with Cassel having a nice rapport with Chris Chambers. Hopefully Dwayne Bowe will stay away from the Merriman Muscle Sauce and continue to torment the AFC West.

    I suppose it is funny, all season long the Chiefs receivers have been dropping passes, so I guess the Chiefs finally got some revenge by dropping one of their receivers?
