[Kansas City.com] The Chiefs on Tuesday terminated the contract of linebacker Napoleon Harris, one of the team’s highest-paid and least-used players.
Harris hadn’t played in a regular-season game and had been relegated to reserve duty, behind Pat Thomas and Weston Dacus. Harris, 29, was in the second year of a six-year contract worth $24.5 million, about a third of that guaranteed. Harris was a fully vested veteran, requiring the Chiefs to terminate his contract to part ways with him.
The Chiefs signed eighth-year linebacker Rocky Boiman to replace Harris on the active roster. Boiman signed a one-year deal.
