KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A report Tuesday suggests that the Kansas City Chiefs and wide receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling are parting ways.

ESPN NFL reporter Jeremy Fowler posted on social media the club is set to release Valdes-Scantling, saving $12 million on the team’s salary cap.

Valdes-Scantling was key in the Chiefs’ playoff run, catching a pass to seal the team’s win in the AFC Championship Game over the Baltimore Ravens. He then caught a touchdown pass to give the Chiefs new life in the third quarter in their Super Bowl LVIII victory over the San Francisco 49ers.
