The Kansas City Chiefs have waived a former top-10 draft selection. Wide receiver John Ross, who was taken ninth overall in 2017, has been waived from the reserve/retired list and is now able to be picked up by another team.
NFL Network’s Mike Garofolo reported the news via Twitter on Tuesday.
Ross played college football at Washington before impressing at the NFL Combine with the fastest 40-time in the history of the pre-draft event (4.22 seconds). That showing propelled him to the top-10 in the NFL Draft, where he was chosen by the Cincinnati Bengals.
After four years as a Bengal, he bounced around to the Giants and Chiefs before finding himself on the waiver wire at time of writing. Ross has 62 receptions in the NFL for 957 yards and 11 touchdowns. He never appeared in a regular season game for the Chiefs.
