Chiefs drop a pair

The Chiefs spent much of 2009 evaluating their poor in-house options at the skill positions, and they’ve decided who they don’t want back in 2010.

The team will release running back Dantrell Savage and wide receiver Devard Darling Wednesday, according to Josh Looney of the team’s website.

Darling is a former third-round pick of the Ravens; he caught 17 passes in 2009. Savage was an undrafted leftover from the Herm Edwards regime that helped on returns.
