KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -Kevin Sampson, a former spot starter at offensive tackle whose career has been hampered by injuries, was among nine players released Tuesday by the Kansas City Chiefs ahead of the NFL's first mandatory cutdown deadline.
Sampson played in 16 games, starting seven, in three years with the Chiefs. His 2006 season ended early when he had back surgery in December.
Kansas City also released tackles George Batiste and Ramiro Pruneda, cornerbacks Marcus Maxey and Michael Bragg, defensive end Chris Harris, tight end Mike Pinkard and wide receivers Titus Ryan and Brent Little.
The Chiefs terminated the contract of wide receiver Rod Gardner and placed four players - guard Chris Bober, fullback Greg Hanoian, linebacker David Hicks and wide receiver Maurice Price - on injured reserve.
