The Kansas City Chiefs are releasing wide receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling, which will save $12 million against their salary cap.

Valdes-Scantling played two seasons with the Chiefs after signing as a free agent from the Green Bay Packers. He caught 42 passes in 2022 and 21 last season but often had his biggest moments in the playoffs.

Rashee Rice was the Chiefs' leading pass catcher in 2023 with 79.
