The Chiefs waived three players Friday, including fullback Aaron Ripkowski. Defensive tackle Henry Mondeaux and receiver Josh Crockett were the other players Kansas City let go.

Ripkowski, 26, did not play last season after the Packers waived him at the start of the season. The Packers made him a sixth-round choice in 2015, and he spent three seasons in Green Bay.

He signed a futures contract with the Chiefs in January.

Mondeaux, 23, and Crockett, 24, have never played a regular-season game.

The Chiefs signed defensive end Tim Ward on Friday. Ward, an undrafted free agent, played at Old Dominion, where he made 31 tackles for loss and 14.5 sacks in his four-year career.

  1. Well, he was a Pro Bowl alternate in 2017, probably by default because there are about 3 full backs left in the NFL. I don’t recall anybody even talking about him when they cut him last year. But, hey, don’t let facts get in the way of a hot take.

  3. I was surprised by how quickly Ripkowski fell off the map. I missed something watching him play, because he seemed pretty effective at first when I saw him come into the league. It’s not a surprise that KC let him go, given the presence of Anthony Sherman, but I do find it strange that Ripkowski still hasn’t stuck to a roster, even with the disappearance of the FB on most teams’ offenses. Maybe someone here can enlighten me a little bit on why he fell off so hard.
