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.
