    Saturday to get to the 53-player roster limit Dexter Williams Jersey , leaving them with 22 players who are either rookies or entering their second year.They waived outside linebacker Aaron Adeoye, offensive tackle Marcus Applefield, cornerback Terrell Bonds, cornerback Maurice Canady, inside linebacker E.J. Ejiya, running back Tyler Ervin, fullback Christopher Ezeala, defensive tackle Willie Henry Jr. Max Scharping Jersey , tight end Cole Herdman, defensive back Bennett Jackson, receiver Sean Modster, inside linebacker Donald Payne, offensive guard R.J. Prince, tight end Charles Scarff, defensive tackle Zach Sieler, running back De'Lance Turner , receiver Antoine Wesley and defensive tackle Gerald Willis.They reached an injury settlement with cornerback Stanley Jean-Baptiste, and waived/injured kicker Cameron Nizialek. The Ravens released safety Brynden Trawick.They placed offensive lineman Randin Crecelius, running back Kenneth Dixon, inside linebacker Alvin Jones, defensive back Fish Smithson and cornerback Tavon Young on injured reserve. If/when the Chiefs apply the franchise tag to Dee Ford, they’ll surely designate him as a linebacker, because he has played linebacker in the team’s 3-4 defense. Ford may argue that he’s actually a defensive end, based on the number of times he rushes the passer versus the number of times he stands up and plays linebacker.It’s a difference of several million dollars under the tag Cullen Gillaspia Jersey , with the defensive end tender carrying the higher value. And while the tender is driven by the position at which the player took the most snaps in the prior year, officially adopting a 4-3 defense and, in turn, formally making Ford a defensive end, would create an avoidable point of contention in the potential grievance to come.That’s possibly why new defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo specifically avoided applying a label to the defense, or to Ford’s role in it, when talking to reporters on Wednesday.Eleven years ago, the Ravens and Terrell Suggs grappled over the issue Tytus Howard Jersey , resolving the grievance by creating a hybrid characterization — one that has never been adopted by the league for all potential similar situations. Ford could have a strong case for a similar outcome; his case for escaping the middle-ground hybrid role and being regarded as a defensive end could be even stronger if the Chiefs were to acknowledge that, in the 2019 defensive scheme, that’s what he’ll be.
