Reactions to Donnie Avery's release from Kansas City Chiefs

The Kansas City Chiefs release of Donnie Avery came as a surprise to ... no one. Unfortunately for Avery, the writing was on the wall when he never really fully came back from his sports hernia surgery. Add in a key fumble in the Broncos-Chiefs game and more than $3 million of cap space saved and you have the whole story. Chiefs fans reactions to the Avery release were not surprising ones. One thing folks did bring up is Albert Wilson, who will have a shot to get those snaps at receiver.

Chiefs release receivers Avery, Jenkins

Kansas City expected to re-work receiving corps The Chiefs officially began their remolding of their 2015 roster on Tuesday, as the team formally announced the release of receivers Donnie Avery and A.J. Jenkins on the eve of the annual scouting combine. By releasing both, the Chiefs created approximately $4.8 million in 2015 cap room. (Kansas City Star) FF Today's Take: No Chiefs receiver finished in the fantasy top 60 at the position in 2014. Dwayne Bowe led all Chiefs receivers with 754 yards and he may be a salary cap casualty as well. Bowe is due $11 million next season.
