Wide receiver Sammie Coates‘ stay in Kansas City came to an end on Friday.

Field Yates of ESPN reports that the Chiefs have released Coates. He signed with the team in February after spending most of last season with the Texans.

Coates played 12 games for the Texans, but only saw 37 offensive snaps and caught one pass for 12 yards. He made four tackles while appearing on special teams.

Coates was a Steelers third-round pick in 2015 and was traded to the Browns in September 2017. He had 28 catches for 516 yards and two touchdowns over his first three seasons in the NFL.

The Chiefs now have 12 wide receivers on the 90-man roster. Barring a change in Tyreek Hill‘s status, only 11 of them are going to be participating in the team’s offseason program.

    KC has definitely regressed since the season ended.

    Although events and reports certainly would give that impression keep in mind that statement gets made about the Patriots at some point pretty much every year.

  2. KC’s regression started when they made two recent draft picks, Hunt and Hill…

    Like you said…that’s the PATRIOTS. The Chiefs are utterly incomparable to the Patriots. We’re all glad your breakout QB had a great first year as a starter. But the reason the Patriots are who they are, every year, is because of two individuals – Bill Belichick and Tom Brady. Which would lead one, in comparing the Chiefs with said Patriots, to stand each of Belichick and Brady’s counterparts up in comparison – Andy Reid and Pat Maholmes. With Reid, we have enough of a body of work to analyze in concluding that he shouldn’t be mentioned in the same breath. Mahomes has done once, what Brady has done for nearly 20 years now, year-after-year. Long way of saying, don’t ever compare these two organizations as if to presuppose some level ground.

  4. The story is not about the Patriots. Wash. Rinse. Repeat.

    KC has regressed because they cut Sammy Coates. So did everyone else. And they certainly aren’t the only team who have hired potential felons *coughs Aaron Hernandez*. Besides….they got Mahomes.

  5. They released a guy who contributed 1 catch for 12 yards and 4 tackles all season. Regression? Lol.

    I think you totally missed the point of the comment instead getting triggered by the P word.

    It was actually about the Chiefs and explaining why no one should be counting them out despite some tough events and reports recently.

  7. I think this means thatTyreke Hill will soon be FREE, and exhonerated.
    Too bad for all the haters
