Chiefs release Huard, Surtain, Edwards

The Chiefs released quarterback Damon Huard, cornerback Patrick Surtain and linebacker Donnie Edwards today. Also released was tight end Mike Merritt.

Huard, Surtain and Edwards were veteran players who didn't appear to fit with the new philosophy of general manager Scott Pioli and coach Todd Haley, so the moves were no surprise.
