Under the radar moves so far:
 
https://www.chiefs.com/team/transactions/

Something sneaky happened recently: the Chiefs released WR Kalija Lipscomb, and signed WR Chad Williams.

3 years of experience, out of Grambling State.

6'2", 204 lbs

His career.

Yeah, was looking at it today.

1, Lipscomb was thought to be the cream of the UDFA crop and most felt he was draftable. He was extremely productive given the team he was on in the SEC. He can't hold a PS spot over Maurice Ffrench? Damn.

2, Williams has been nothing more than a shit show ever since the Senior Bowl a few years back, even though he was productive in college and has some burners.

I'm not questionining the move that much, but it certainly seems odd.

Edit: What's crazier yet about it is that the Chiefs didn't HAVE to release Lipscomb. They have two open spots on the PS.

Consecutive years that the team has snagged some big shit UDFA w/ a high-dollar offer only to cut 'em almost immediately.

I don't recall the guy they did it with last year but my memory was he had a shot at sticking with someone this year.

EDIT: Cody Thompson. Jamal Custis was another one - he got the peak signing bonus but never got as much traction in camp as Thompson did.

Near as I can tell Thompson is on the Seahawks practice squad and Custis is bagging groceries somewhere.

Last year it was Mark Fields :evil:

I posted about this in the Lounge but the Chiefs actually, bizarrely, signed our punter's brother, who is also a punter, to the Practice Squad on Tuesday.

His brother Johnny signed a 4 year contract with the Raiders in 2018, but was cut the following year and bounced between a couple teams until we inked him.
