Chiefs waive DB Thorpe, re-sign OL Mattison
The Chiefs waived Neiko Thorpe on Monday and re-signed offensive
lineman Bryan Mattison, who had been waived just last week to make
room for the rookie defensive back.
The Chiefs wanted Thorpe available to help on special teams and
provide some help in the defensive backfield in Sunday’s 9-6 loss
to the Baltimore Ravens. They waived Mattison, who has played 15
games over two seasons in St. Louis and Baltimore, to clear roster
space for him.
Injured backup defensive back Jalil Brown is expected back at
practice this week, and the Chiefs brought back Mattison to provide
depth along the offensive line.
