Excelsior Springs High School graduate and former Tiger football player Chad Kilgore has been released from the Kansas City Chiefs to make room for cornerback Kennard Cox. Kilgore was waived prior to the Chiefs’ final practice Wednesday, Aug. 14.
Last season Kilgore spent time at the Raiders training camp but didn’t make the cut for Oakland either.
Kilgore also played at nearby Northwest Missouri State as a linebacker. There he led the Bearcats in tackles the last two seasons he played and was a two-time All American selection. He ranks fourth all-time at Northwest with 392 tackles and posted 2.5 sacks and 11.5 tackles for a loss as a senior.
