James Winchester (Choctaw Nation) to be Named to Final Roster for the Kansas City Chiefs


KANSAS CITY – The Kansas City Chiefs waived 11 players on Sunday afternoon to prepare for the NFL’s mandated 75-player roster limit by Sept. 1. Notably not on the list was Indian Country’s very own James Winchester (Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma) who was signed earlier this spring to tryout for the Long Snapper position. He was in closely contested battle for the position along side rookie long snapper Andrew East who was 1 of the 11 players waived by Kansas City.

“I think both of them are going to snap in this league,” Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid said. “I think they’re both really good. I think it came down to just the velocity of Winchester. He was just a hair faster.”
