KANSAS CITY, Mo. (March 2, 2006) -- Kansas City Chiefs President Carl Peterson announced that the club had terminated the contracts of LB Shawn Barber, CB Dexter McCleon, LB Gary Stills and CB Eric Warfield.


Shawn Barber has been limited 11 games played in the last two seasons due to injuries.
Barber played in 27 games (24 starts) for the Chiefs since joining the club as an unrestricted free agent from Philadelphia in 2003. He recorded 183 tackles (132 solo), two interceptions, 6.0 sacks, seven QB pressures, three fumble recoveries and 10 passes defensed. The eight-year NFL veteran has appeared in 92 career games (74 starts) with the Redskins, Eagles and Chiefs, producing 583 tackles (407 solo), 10.0 sacks, seven interceptions with two TDs, 20 QB pressures, five fumble recoveries, eight forced fumbles and 31 passes defensed. Barber has also started five postseason contests, registering 36 tackles (27 solo) and one forced fumble.

McCleon saw duty in 11 games (five starts) for Kansas City in 2005, producing 24 tackles (21 solo), two INTs and four passes defensed. After originally joining the Chiefs as a free agent in 2003, he played in 40 games (27 starts), registering 132 tackles (107 solo), 23 passes defensed, 10 interceptions and three fumble recoveries. The Meridian, Miss., native has played in 131 games (84 starts) during his nine-year NFL career with the Rams and Chiefs, posting 391 tackles (315 solo), 4 sacks, 90 passes defensed, 30 interceptions, six fumble recoveries, one forced fumble and one QB pressure. He has also started eight playoff contests, recording 37 tackles (30 solo), two interceptions and eight passes defensed.

Stills ranked second on the team with 25 special-teams tackles to go with a fumble recovery on special teams in 2005. The seven-year NFL veteran has played in 88 career games (one start), totaling 80 tackles (41 solo), 7 sacks, four fumble recoveries, 19 QB pressures and three passes defensed. He totaled a club-record 148 career special-teams tackles, in addition to four fumble recoveries and three forced fumbles. The Trenton, N.J., native played in one playoff game in 2003, recording two tackles and two special-teams tackles. Stills earned an invitation to the Pro Bowl as a special-teams performer following the 2003 season when he led the team with 29 special-teams tackles.

Warfield played in 11 games with 10 starts at right cornerback for the Chiefs in 2005, producing 63 tackles (54 solo), including two behind the line, an interception for a 57-yard TD, seven passes defensed and two fumble recoveries. He joined Kansas City as the first of the club's two selections in the seventh round (216th overall) of the 1998 NFL Draft. The Vicksburg, Miss., native saw duty in 115 games (77 starts) during his eight-year stay with Kansas City, tallying 393 tackles (317 solo), 63 passes defensed, one sack, 20 interceptions with three TDs, five forced fumbles, three fumble recoveries, one QB pressure and 31 special-teams tackles. He also started one playoff game, recording five tackles and two passes defensed.

Are you saying it IS or IS NOT official? All I know is Carl Peterson is referenced in the article I posted. That makes it OFFICIAL to me.

Thanks for clueing me in on the prior conversations. That being said, we can conclude that Warfield, Barber, Stills, and McCleon WILL be canned, barring a miracle.

Teams can elect to pull the players back if they want.

There's no need to pull these 4 players back.

Good luck because Bell is here to stay. I feel one reason he has stayed (beside a big cut) is the Chiefs are going to go to a 3-4 defense in 2007.

They will make him take a huge paycut, if he stays. As far as 3-4, I am sure someone on here knows.

Personally, I think there's something wrong with Bell beyond just not being used properly. He looks like he's still injured, or gunshy. That being said, I don't mind a 1.5 mil price tag for him.

why keep a linebacker who refuses to use one shoulder to tackle

People need to come off the 3-4 thing. We have 1 LB who can play in a 3-4 the rest of them are all 4-3 LB's. We also in no way shape or form have the Dline it takes to play that defense. We don't have the personel for the 3-4, quit trying to get us to play it.
