The Chiefs released Golden on Wednesday at his request, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran safety believes he didn't receive a fair shake from the coaching staff, so he will give it another go elsewhere and expects to find a new team in the near future.

Golden signed a contract with the Chiefs on Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

Golden was cut by the Steelers in mid-March after serving as a special teams player and depth defensive back in 2017. The 27-year-old would likely serve similarly in Kansas City if he earns a spot on the 53-man roster.

Golden was released by the Steelers on Wednesday, Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

Golden spent the past six seasons with the Steelers but was never been much of an IDP prospect -- especially after reverting to more of a special-teams player in 2017. His best year came in 2014 when he racked up 40 tackles and four pass breakups in 16 games. While the 28-year-old still has something left in the tank at this stage in his career, he's unlikely to land somewhere with a role that could propel him to fantasy relevance.

Golden, who recorded one tackle (solo) in the Week 17 win over the Browns, finished the 2017 season with 19 tackles (13 solo) an interception, and five yards on one kick return, playing in all 16 games.

EDGE Analysis

In what was otherwise a pedestrian effort for Golden, the play that likely makes the season highlight film came in Week 7 against the Bengals when he completed his only pass attempt for 44 yards to Darrius Heyward-Bey on a fake punt. It was his second pass completion in as many attempts in his six-year career, and his first since 2014.

Golden (ankle) did not participate in practice Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

Golden suffered an ankle injury during Week 16 versus the Ravens, while the issue remains bothersome and may keep him out of the regular season finale with the Steelers' playoff spot already secure. If he's ultimately sidelined, expect Jordan Dangerfield to draw the start at strong safety.

Golden may be limited this week due to an ankle injury, Dale Lolley of the Observer-Reporter reports.

EDGE Analysis

Golden injured his ankle in Sunday's game against Baltimore and his availability for Week 17 is now in question. He'll likely miss some time during the week and, with Pittsburgh already locking up a division title, may be rested in order to be ready for the playoffs. Jordan Dangerfield and Sean Davis will likely see some added time if Golden is sidelined come Sunday.
