In what is probably a prelude to picking up another player that was cut on Saturday and needing to free up a spot on the 53-man roster, the Kansas City Chiefs announced that they traded linebacker Edgar Jones to the Dallas Cowboys in exchange for an undisclosed draft pick.
The trade puts the Chiefs current roster at 52 players, one under the league-mandated limit.
Jones played in 57 games during six seasons with Kansas City (2012) and Baltimore (2007-11). Almost all of his action has been with special teams, recording 39-career tackles, one forced fumble and three fumble recoveries, including one returned for a touchdown.
Every NFL team had to get their rosters down to 53 players by 5:00 p.m. CT on Saturday, and as always happens this time of year, some players that could help the Chiefs are passing through waivers and could be available to them Sunday.
But don’t worry, Chiefs fans, it’s highly doubtful that the team will sign former Gator legend, Tim Tebow, released by the New England Patriots on Saturday.
