Chiefs Waived DT Rakeem Nunez-Roches, Promote G Jordan Devey To Active Roster

The Chiefs announced Saturday that they’ve placed DT Rakeem Nunez-Roches on waivers and promoted G Jordan Devey to their 53-man roster.

Nunez-Roches, 23, is a former sixth-round pick by the Chiefs of the 2015 NFL Draft. He signed a four-year, $2,370,484 rookie contract that contained $90,484 guaranteed and was set to make $525,000 this season to go along with another $615,000 next year and $705,000 in 2018.

In 2015, he appeared in seven games for the Chiefs and recorded four total tackles during that span.

Devey, 28, originally signed on with the Ravens as an undrafted free agent out of Memphis back in 2013. He was unable to make the team’s 53-man roster coming out of the preseason but later signed on to the Patriots’ practice squad before returning to New England on a future/reserve contract.

The Patriots wound up trading him to the 49ers in return for TE Asante Cleveland during the preseason.

The Chiefs later claimed Devey back in May after he was cut by San Francisco. Kansas City signed him to their practice squad after he was among their final roster cuts.

In 2015, Devey wound up being active for 15 games last year and was rated by Pro Football Focus as the No. 73 guard out of 81 qualifying players.
