Jermelle Cudjo DL DET 7 Months

Cudjo was released by the Chiefs on Monday, ESPN Kansas City reports.

Kudjo was released by the Rams in May and subsequently signed by the Chiefs less than a week later to add depth on the defensive line. His preseason must not have been impressive enough to keep him on the roster, as he was one of 12 casualties during the first round of cuts.

The Rams are getting a head start on paring their overflowing defensive line. A reserve defensive tackle, Cudjo was ineffective across 214 snaps last season, struggling as a run stopper while generating zero pass-rush heat.

Rams re-signed DT Jermelle Cudjo to a two-year contract.

Cudjo was a restricted free agent. A reserve defensive tackle, Cudjo played 351 snaps last season, notching 21 tackles and one sack. Going on 27, Cudjo is not a high-ceilinged prospect, and should remain a backup in 2013.

Rams signed DT Jermelle Cudjo to a one-year, $540,000 deal.

Cudjo missed all of 2011 with a back injury after appearing in 10 games in 2010, where he notched 13 tackles and 0.5 sacks. With new coach Jeff Fisher revamping the defensive line, Cudjo will have a hard time cracking the Rams' final 53.

Rams placed DT Jermelle Cudjo on injured reserve with a back injury, ending his season.

They also waived DE Kenneth Charles and S John Dempsey, both undrafted free agents. Cudjo, 25, had nine tackles and a half sack in 13 appearances last season. He was washed out against the run too often to make the 2011 roster.
