Chiefs defensive lineman Tyson Jackson could be released this offseason, per Dave Skretta of the Associated Press.
“Defensive end Tyson Jackson, who’s been a disappointment since being the No. 3 overall pick in 2009, is due to make close to $15 million this season,” writes Skretta. “The Chiefs could try to restructure his deal or simply cut him in an attempt to create more money for filling in other holes.”
Former GM Scott Pioli is no longer making calls on the roster, so it would appear that Jackson’s only hope to stay with the team would be to take a pay-cut. With a team coming off of a horrid 2-14 season and new GM likely to be hired in the near future, the Chiefs could see a large turnover in their roster this offseason.
