Chiefs cut Isaiah Buggs following multiple offseason incidents: report

The Kansas City Chiefs reportedly released defensive lineman Isaiah Buggs following the player’s recent arrests.

The Chiefs’ decision to cut Buggs from their roster was first reported by the NFL Network on Monday. The team signed Buggs to their practice squad in January and re-signed him to a futures contract in February.

Buggs has faced numerous startling allegations since the end of May.

He faced animal cruelty charges in Alabama and turned himself in to authorities on May 30.

The Tuscaloosa Police Department said two dogs were found “seriously malnourished” and emaciated” on March 28 on the back porch of a house Buggs had rented, according to court documents. According to court filings, a neighbor said a pitbull and a Rottweiler mix were left there for at least 10 days and had no access to food or water. Buggs moved out of the house on March 19, according to a witness.

Trey Robinson, Buggs’ agent, said in May that his client “vehemently denies” the allegations and the dogs didn’t belong to him.

Buggs didn’t appear in a game for the Chiefs.
