BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — The Kansas City Chiefs have released former Bismarck High and University of North Dakota standout wide receiver Weston Dressler.
The Chiefs announced the move Monday morning on the team website. Dressler was among 11 players cut.
The Canadian Football League’s Saskatchewan Roughriders released Dressler early this year to give him the opportunity to sign with an NFL team. The Chiefs signed him in February.
Dressler played six seasons with the Roughriders, topping the 1,000-yard receiving mark five times. He also was the CFL’s rookie of the year in 2008 and won a Grey Cup championship with the team last year.
Greg Hardin, another former UND receiver, was waived by the Denver Broncos on Sunday.
