Chiefs release QB Kyle Shurmur

The Kansas City Chiefs released QB Kyle Shurmur on Monday, according to ESPN’s Dan Graziano.

The Chiefs signed Shurmur as a UDFA after the 2019 draft. Shurmur spent most of the season on the practice squad but spent time on the active roster backing up Matt Moore when Patrick Mahomes was injured.

The move leaves the Chiefs with three qiarterbacks on the roster in Patrick Mahomes, Chad Henne, and recently signed Jordan Ta’Amu. Ta’Amu is set to be the team’s third string quarterback.
