KANSAS CITY, Mo. — One of the 14 cuts made by the Kansas City Chiefs was sixth-round draft choice Braden Wilson, the former Kansas State University fullback.

The Chiefs made their first roster cuts to get down to the 75-player limit before Tuesday’s deadline.

Other cuts included quarterback Ricki Stanzi, who was beat out for the third quarterback by Tyler Bray.

Wilson was in competition with Anthony Sherman, who was acquired from the Phoenix Cardinals.

He appeared in 29 games the past two seasons for the Cardinals.

Wilson was known as a pure lead-blocker for the Wildcats.

Wilson carried the ball just 39 times in four seasons at Kansas State.

Third-round pick Knile Davis helped his cause with a 109-yard kickoff return Saturday in the 26-20 overtime victory over Pittsburgh.

The Chiefs need to get down to the 53-man roster by Saturday.

The other cuts included:

CB Vince Agnew

DE Miguel Chavis

WR Terrance Copper

OL Ryan Durand

OL Hutch Eckerson

DB Otha Foster III

OL AJ Hawkins

DE Rob Lohr

CB Kamaal McIlwain

RB Jordan Roberts

WR Tyler Shoemaker
