Chiefs cut YouTube star's NFL dream short after four days

BY foxsports • August 3, 2015

LaVance Taylor's Twitter stunt was crazy enough to work -- but not for a full week.

The YouTube star -- who tweeted his highlights to the team and asked for a job -- was released after Sunday's practice. 

Taylor was shaping up to be a story for the Chiefs. He was born and raised in the area and starred at nearby Central Missouri. He even rocked the same number Marcus Allen did for his tenure in town.

The team replaced Taylor with Darren Reaves, formerly of the Carolina Panthers.

Such is life as a end-of-roster signee in a league where seniority rules.
