Chiefs Cut RB Akeem Hunt & DT Stefan Charles, Claim TE Alex Ellis


The Kansas City Chiefs officially claimed TE Alex Ellis off of waivers from the Saints on Tuesday and waived RB Akeem Hunt with a failed physical designation.

The Chiefs also released DT Stefan Charles.

Hunt, 25, originally signed on with the Giants as an undrafted free agent out of Purdue back in May. However, he was unfortunately among their early roster cuts. The Ravens later signed him to their practice squad, but he lasted just a week in Baltimore.

The Texans signed Hunt to their practice squad in November of 2015 and he was on and off of their roster the past few years. The Chiefs signed him to their practice squad and eventually called him up a few weeks into the regular season last year before eventually placing him on injured reserve.

In 2017, Hunt appeared in 15 games for the Chiefs and rushed for 23 yards on eight carries (2.9 YPC) to go along with four receptions for 31 yards receiving and no touchdowns. He also contributed 611 kick return yards.
