Chiefs: Sean Culkin released by Kansas City on Monday

Back in February, Culkin signed a one-year deal worth $920,000. Upon signing with the team, Culkin had a shot to win the backup tight end spot behind star Travis Kelce. But then, Chiefs general manager Brett Veach made a plethora of moves after releasing Eric Fisher and Mitchell Schwartz while also restructuring the contracts of Patrick Mahomes, Chris Jones and Kelce.

Prior to the NFL Draft, the Chiefs signed former Dallas Cowboys tight end Blake Bell to a one-year, $1.1 million contract. The tight end depth chart grew further after the Chiefs decided to trade up in the fifth round in the NFL Draft to select Duke tight end Noah Gray. Add that to the team also having Nick Keizer and Evan Baylis on the positional depth chart, and that virtually spelled the end of Culkin’s time in Kansas City.

Through his four years in the NFL, Culkin caught two passes for 36 yards on three targets in 19 games.

Cullen will now look to sign on with a team ahead of training camp this summer.
