The Kansas City Chiefs are using their draft choices to collect some former high profile picks that didn’t necessarily pan out elsewhere. After landing 2016 2nd rounder Reggie Ragland from the Bills, the Chiefs went to work hammering out a deal for a former first round pick, Cam Erving. Without a home on Cleveland’s offensive line, Erving became expendable.
Ian Rapoport of NFL Network was the first to report the transaction:

Erving, 25, was taken 19th overall in the 2015 NFL Draft. Erving was rated fairly high on my draft board but didn’t have a true defined position. My thought was he was a better right tackle but the Browns worked him out at center, an experiment that didn’t work. It’s unclear what position the Chiefs plan on using him at.
Cleveland will likely continue their roster overhaul prior to the start of the season. Joe Haden fell victim to this after being released earlier today. No man is safe on this Browns roster as they look to acquire as many draft choices as possible moving forward.
