Chiefs jettison Darling and Savage

The Kansas City Chiefs continue to shed players from the Carl Peterson regime.

Kansas City cut receiver Devard Darling and running back/returner Dantrell Savage on Wednesday. Both Darling and Savage were role players.

Darling was on injured reserve all of last season. He joined the team in 2008.

Savage had 34 kickoff returns for 793 yards in two seasons in Kansas City. He was brought in as an undrafted free agent in 2008. He also rushed for 98 yards on 25 carries. The previous regime thought Savage had a future as a return man, but he never really developed.
