Chiefs' Reid says cutting Maclin been in works for a while

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) Chiefs coach Andy Reid says the move to cut wide receiver Jeremy Maclin had been under consideration for a while, but Reid refused to discuss the reasons behind last week's stunning decision.

Reid spoke Tuesday for the first time since Maclin was released.

The Chiefs had been bumping up against the salary cap before the move Friday, and would have had trouble signing their three remaining draft picks. But by releasing Maclin after June 1, they saved about $10 million that they can add to the roughly $3.5 million they had available.
