The Kansas City Chiefs have been making moves to the roster since the 2024 NFL Draft.

Over the weekend, the Chiefs signed undrafted free-agent wide receiver Reggie Brown to the roster. He would not last more than 48 hours.

Reggie Brown, a wide receiver out of James Madison University, was the first cut even though the Chiefs signed him right away.

Jaaron Hayek, an undrafted wide receiver who was invited to minicamp as a tryout, was signed by Kansas City on Tuesday.

According to Arrowhead Live, the Chiefs sacked Brown in return.

Hayek, who went undrafted out of Villanova, caught 170 passes for 2,744 yards and 29 touchdowns in five seasons in college.

As for now-former Chiefs WR Reggie Brown, he broke out in his senior year with James Madison, totaling 53 catches for 1,054 yards and nine touchdowns. He had a difficult challenge ahead of him, but with the Chiefs’ shortage of wide receiving depth and their selection of just one wideout in the draft, he had a genuine shot at contending for a roster position or, at the very least, a berth on the practice squad.

Last year, Brown recorded 53 receptions for 1,055 yards and a team-leading nine touchdowns.

Following his release, Brown will look to land a minicamp tryout with another franchise.

Kansas City took Xavier Worthy with the No. 28 pick in the 2024 NFL draft to give Patrick Mahomes an elite deep threat for the team.

Worthy has the chance to fill the void left by Tyreek Hill, as the team traded him two years ago.

The Chiefs are fresh off their second straight Super Bowl and are looking to make history by becoming the first team in league history to win three straight Super Bowls.
