Chiefs Place LB Martrell Spaight On Retired List

The Kansas City Chiefs officially placed LB Martrell Spaight on the reserve/retired list on Monday.

This is just a procedural move from the Chiefs’ standpoint, as it ensures that they still hold Spaight’s rights in the event he decides to unretire at some point. 

Spaight, 25, is a former fifth-round pick by the Redskins in the 2015 NFL Draft. He was entering the final year of his four-year, $2,517,948 contract when Washington waived him as they trimmed their roster down to the 53-man limit.

Spaight had brief stints with the Jaguars and Dolphins last year before signing a futures contract with the Chiefs this past January. 

For his career, Spaight appeared in 37 games and recorded 87 tackles, four tackles for a loss, no sacks, one interception, a fumble recovery and three pass defenses over the course of four seasons.
