The Chiefs released two players that served as reminders of the last regime's failures, writes Bill Williamson. Blog
The team announced the moves Tuesday in a statement on its website.
Breaston was lured to Kansas City in 2011 by former coach Todd Haley and general manager Scott Pioli, and signed a $22.5 million, five-year deal. But he fell out of favor last season under coach Romeo Crennel, catching seven passes for 74 yards in 10 games.
Boss signed a $9 million, three-year deal last offseason, but only had three catches for 65 yards before sustaining a season-ending concussion in Week 2 against Buffalo.http://espn.go.com/nfl/story/_/id/8963930/kansas-city-chiefs-release-steve-breaston-kevin-boss
