Chiefs Release QB Terrelle Pryor

Thearon W. Henderson/Getty Images(KANSAS CITY, Mo.) -- The Kansas City Chiefs released quarterback Terrelle Pryor on Tuesday.

Pryor came over to Kansas City at the end of last season after the Seattle Seahawks released him. Pryor spent 2011 to 2013 with the Oakland Raiders before requesting a trade.

The Chiefs have four other quarterbacks on the roster that include starter Alex Smith, Chase Daniel, Tyler Bray and Aaron Murray.

During his time with the Raiders, Pryor completed 56 percent of his passes for 1,953 yards, nine touchdowns and 12 interceptions.

Chiefs Agree on Deal to Bring back Safety Ron Parker

Jason O. Watson/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- After testing the free agent market, defensive back Ron Parker has agreed on a deal to remain with the Kansas City Chiefs.

ESPN is reporting that Parker's deal with the Chiefs is for five years and worth $30 million.

Parker's new contract is quite impressive considering his NFL career prior to this past season. He came into the league as undrafted free agent in 2011 out of Newberry College. He played for the Raiders, Seahawks, and Panthers before landing with the Chiefs in 2013.

Before the 2014 season, Parker had just 20 career tackles. He was forced into the starting lineup once safety Eric Berry needed to be place on injured reserve after he was diagnosed with lymphoma.

Parker wound up being one of the team's most valuable defenders as he racked up 94 tackles, 1.0 sack, 1 forced fumble and 1 interception.

Chiefs Release Dwayne Bowe

Jason O. Watson/Getty Images(KANSAS CITY, Mo.) -- The Kansas City Chiefs cut receiver Dwayne Bowe Thursday.

Bowe has spent his entire eight-year NFL career with the Chiefs and is the second leading pass-catcher in team history.

"On behalf of my family and the entire Chiefs organization, I'd like to thank Dwayne for his contributions over the last eight seasons," Cheifs chairman Clark Hunt said in a statement. "During his time with the Chiefs, Dwayne established himself as one of the best receivers in club history. We wish Dwayne nothing but the best as he moves forward."

The 30-year-old Bowe played in 15 games last season, catching 60 passes for 754 yards and zero touchdowns.

If the Chiefs would have kept him, Bowe would have been a $14 million cap hit.

"It's been a pleasure working with Dwayne the past two seasons," Chiefs head coach Andy Reid said. "He showed up every day with a great attitude and did everything we asked of him. He was a productive player for a number of years here, and I have a lot of respect for what he was able to accomplish."

Earlier in the week, the Chiefs signed free-agent receiver Jeremy Maclin, making it easier to release Bowe.

Bowe finishes his time with the Chiefs with 532 catches for 7,155 yards and 44 touchdowns.

Report: Jeremy Maclin Headed to Kansas City

David Dermer/Diamond Images/Getty Images(KANSAS CITY, Mo.) -- Andy Reid has wooed one of his former first-round picks to the Kansas City Chiefs.

Jeremy Maclin will agree to a contract with Kansas City once free agency begins Tuesday, according to ESPN.

While with the Eagles, Reid selected Maclin with the 19th pick in the 2009 NFL draft. 

Maclin missed all of the 2013 season with a torn ACL. He bounced back for a career season under Chip Kelly last year as he caught 85 passes for 1,318 yards and 10 touchdowns.

To clear cap space for the move, the Chiefs have restructured the contract of defensive end Tamba Hali and are expected to release wide receiver Dwayne Bowe.

Chiefs Lose QB Smith to Lacerated Spleen

Jason O. Watson/Getty Images(KANSAS CITY, Mo.) -- Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith has a lacerated spleen that will keep him out of Sunday's game against the San Diego Chargers.

It's tough news for a Chiefs team that earns a playoff berth with a win and a Ravens loss coupled with a Texans loss or tie on Sunday.

Apparently Smith suffered the injury in the third quarter of the team's game against Pittsburgh when he took a shot to his abdomen.

"Generally (lacerated spleens) take six weeks (to heal) but everybody is different,'' Chiefs trainer Rick Burkholder said. "He's a young, healthy guy that's got a high metabolism. If we're playing three, four weeks from now, we'll rescan him and see where he's at."

With Smith out, Chase Daniel becomes the starter. This will only be Daniel's second start in five NFL seasons.

After Knocking Off Chiefs, Steelers Are Playoff Bound

Pittsburgh Steelers (NFL)

(PITTSBURGH) -- Ben Roethlisberger threw for 220 yards and a touchdown to lead the Pittsburgh Steelers past the Kansas City Chiefs 20-12 Sunday.

With the win, Pittsburgh (10-5) locked up a playoff berth for the first time in three years and will have a chance to win the AFC North title next week when they take on Cincinnati.

The Steelers pressured Alex Smith all day, sacking him six times. They also held star running back Jamaal Charles to 29 yards on nine carries.

Despite the loss, Kansas City (8-7) can still make the playoffs if they beat San Diego next week and get some help from other teams. The Steelers pressured Alex Smith all day, sacking him six times. They also held star running back Jamaal Charles to 29 yards on nine carries.

Chiefs At Steelers Preview

Jason O. Watson/Getty Images(KANSAS CITY, Mo.) -- The Kansas City Chiefs still have a lot to play for with two games remaining in the season.

Kansas City (8-6) sits in the seventh spot in the AFC wild card behind the Ravens (9-5) and Steelers (9-5).

"He is a guy that doesn’t get rattled," Chiefs defensive coordinator Bob Sutton said of Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. "He is one of those quarterbacks that just knows how to keep plays alive scrambling. He is not fast but he is deceivingly quick and just maneuvering and that’s what makes him great."

"I think you have to put him up there with one of the elite quarterbacks especially with the year he is having right now," Sutton continued. "He is just very efficient at what he does."

It's also an important game for the Steelers, who can clinch a playoff berth for the first time since 2011.

"We’re not looking at feelings," Steelers veteran linebacker James Harrison said. "We’re going to go out there and play each down and play each quarter and play each half and try to come out with enough good plays to get a ‘W'. We need to win this game. I’ll worry about anything else after we get through this next week."

Chiefs' Berry Diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma

Jason O. Watson/Getty Images(KANSAS CITY, Mo.) -- Kansas City Chiefs' safety Eric Berry has been diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma on Monday.

According to his doctor, Dr. Christopher Flowers, Berry will undergo treatment with the possibility of a full recovery.

"This is a diagnosis that is very treatable and potentially curable with standard chemotherapy approaches," Flowers said, through a statement released through the Chiefs. "The goal of Mr. Berry's treatment is to cure his lymphoma and we are beginning that treatment now."

After a Nov. 20 game against the Oakland Raiders, Berry, 25, began to experience discomfort in his chest. Tests discovered a large mass that was initially diagnosed as lymphoma. 

Hodgkins Lymphoma is a type of cancer that develops in the body's white blood cells, known as lymphocytes. The main difference between Hodgkins Lymphoma and non-Hodgkins Lymphoma is the determination of what abnormal cells are present, which a doctor can determine under a microscope. Other differences include age of those affected and treatment regimens.
