It wasn’t that long ago the Chiefs thought Rakeem Nunez-Roches was worth $1.9 million.

They no longer feel that way.

According to Terez Paylor of Yahoo Sports, the Chiefs have released the defensive lineman.

He signed his restricted free agent tender on April 27, and at some point in the less-than-two weeks since, they deemed him no longer cost-effective.

He played in every game last year, starting 11 games.

  1. YEP Class act are those Chiefs, wait until free agency and the draft is over to release a decent player.. Good luck buddy.. My Vikings might pick you up.. A good player and good person.. you deserve better than that..

  2. Bro, they picked up 2 DT’s in the draft. As they say, it’s a business. Clearly he was on the fringe anyway with a minimal contract.

    *COUGH* Teddy Bridgewater *COUGH*

  4. Teddy was a free agent. Completely free to sign wherever he wanted. His agent pushed
    for his contract not to toll. His choice. Instead if he choses it to toll he’s making $1.8M this year instead of $500k. Chief’s guy was a RFA. They kept him off the market until after the draft. It will be tough to find a job.

    “The Minnesota Vikings will not exercise the fifth-year option on quarterback Teddy Bridgewater, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Monday.” Don’t think he was a free agent by choice.

    Teddy passed some tests but was not ready to play, as was his 3 Plays against the Bengals last year, Two Incomplete passes and an INT, he couldn’t move. NOBODY loves Teddy more than us in Minnesota, He is a great kid and most of us wanted to keep him, but he will never start an NFL game again.. Love you Teddy….

    Just give it up dude.

  8. From May 7th “…the Vikings released three rookies and a second-year player. The most recognizable of those released is WR Armanti Foreman, the brother of 2017 second-round running back D’Onta Foreman. In addition to him, the Vikings released rookies Nick Dooley, a long snapper, and FB Kamryn Pettway, along with second-year DT Cashaud Lyons.”

    Yeah real class act those Vikings. Wait until free agency and the draft is over to release four players. They deserve better than that..SMDH
