CHIEFS PLACE BARTEE, HOLMES ON RESERVE/PUP; RELEASE 14 OTHERS

Chiefs President Carl Peterson announced on Monday that the club has made 16 transactions in order to comply with the NFLís first mandatory cutdown deadline. The Chiefs have trimmed their roster to 75 players.

The Chiefs placed S William Bartee and RB Priest Holmes on the Reserve/Physically Unable to Perform List (PUP). Kansas City waived CB Jerald Brown, WR Kyle Brown, DT Arrion Dixon, TE Robert Docherty, G Steve Franklin, G Peter Heyer, WR Darrell Hill, TE Adam Johnson, G Tyler Lenda, WR Scott McCready, CB Justin Perkins, LB Nick Reid, WB Jeff Smoker and WR Craphonso Thorpe.

Holmes has started 61 games for the Chiefs, rushing 1,275 times for a club-record 5,933 yards (4.7 avg.) with 76 TDs and catching 246 passes for 2,360 yards (9.6 avg.) with seven scores. He originally joined the club as an unrestricted free agent from Baltimore in 2001. He has played in 109 career regular season contests (80 starts), carrying the ball 1,734 times for 8,035 yards (4.6 avg.) with 86 TDs and catching 334 passes for 2,945 yards (8.8 avg.) with eight TDs. The Fort Smith, Arkansas native has played in five postseason contests (two starts), including a start in an AFC Divisional Playoff Game vs. Indianapolis (1/11/04) with Kansas City when he rushed 24 times for a Chiefs single-game record 176 yards (7.3 avg.) with two TDs.

Bartee was a second-round pick (54th overall) of Kansas City in the 2000 NFL Draft. He has played in 87 games (31 starts), recording 226 tackles (177 solo), 3.5 sacks (-28.5 yards), 30 passes defensed two QB pressures and 56 special teams tackles. The Daytona Beach, Florida native produced five tackles in his lone postseason appearance with the Chiefs vs. Indianapolis (1/11/04).

Each team must finalize its 53-man roster on Saturday, September 2nd and can create an eight-man practice squad beginning on Sunday, September 3rd.

I thought Dixon was doing well, in the small spurts I saw him (In RF and during games), but it's interesting that Ville is still around, I think.

Thorpe surprises me.

It was pretty clear he was not on the "good kids list", even among the scrub WRs competing for the 4th (and maybe 5th) roster spots.

I didn't think he'd make the final roster, but I thought we might try to get him on the PS.

FWIW, now that #12 is available, think Croyle will get dibs on it?

They left off Bartee's interception stats.

Yeah, that does kinda suck. But he didn't have a great chance here. This team is deep at LB. Perhaps they'll put him on the practice squad (if he clears waivers).

I'm not surprised by any of them except for that Siavii made the 1st round of cuts. I however am a bit dissapointed about Nick Reid.

Naw, Siavii is still injured. If they cut him they'd have to do an injury settlement.

Well I hope that piece of crap gets healthy soon so he can be cut with no injury settlement.

Darrell Hill cut himself in the first preseason game.
Was he the guy hat let the punt bounce into the end zone when he could have easily downed it near the 1?

So he's a cutter, eh? Nasty habit.

Surprised, but not shocked, by Dixon and Thorpe. :hmmm:

Thought Perkins & Reid might make it to next week. Guess not.

So much for that 1st round talent if he hadn't been injured...

Only surprise to me is Bartee is gonna stick around?

08-28-2006, 01:19 PM
What about the Holthus rumors about surprise cuts? Didn't Herm say there would be vet cuts first so they could latch onto some other team?

Seems a little early to be giving up on Thorpe. I wonder if Washington will pick him up.

LB Nick Reid, WB Jeff Smoker and WR Craphonso ThorpeDamn.

I was hoping Smoker would provide much-needed depth on the wings.

I guess Webb will be the 4th WR this year. I just don't see N. Curry, C. Hannon or J. McIntyre beating him out.

So is this a permanent PUP, or like the training camp PUP, where they can remove them any time they like? I didn't think they needed to officially put anyone on the PUP list until right before the season. Hopefully no more than a temporary numbers game for Bartee, I don't want that guy gettin paid any more than necessary, a greyhound ticket outa town!

I hope for Bartee's sake that he graduated from college before coming to the NFL, me thinks he's gonna need it.

Not that anyone here has been trying to make that point for the last two years or anything.
