Chiefs release WR Da'Rick Rogers ahead of minicamp

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) The Chiefs released wide receiver Da'Rick Rogers and offensive lineman Kelvin Palmer and signed offensive lineman Tavon Rooks before the start of their mandatory minicamp Tuesday.

Rogers, once a college standout for Tennessee, was kicked off the team for disciplinary issues and transferred to Tennessee Tech. But he's been unable to make it in the NFL, catching just 14 passes for 192 yards and two touchdowns while bouncing through three franchises.

In May, Rogers spent one day in jail after pleading guilty in Indianapolis to drunken driving.

The release of Palmer and the signing of Rooks, a former Kansas State player, is basically a swap of players deep on the depth chart.
