Chiefs Release Hicks, Sims

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) _
The Chiefs released Hicks today, three days after taking
Tennessee defensive lineman Claude ``Turk'' McBride in the second
round of the N-F-L draft.
Hicks played in 128 games in nine seasons for the Chiefs, making
104 starts, after being signed in 1998 as an undrafted free agent
out of Maryland. He became a full-time starter in 1999, but has
seen his role diminish with the emergence of Jared Allen and Tamba
Hali.
A couple of hours after Hicks was officially let go, Kansas City
parted ways with Sims, who has been a disappointment since the
Chiefs picked him in the first round of the 2002 draft.
Kansas traded the often-injured Sims to Tampa Bay for a future
draft pick.
