Back on active roster

Finds new home in Miami

Shown door in Kansas City

The Chiefs waived Kemp on Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Analysis: Kamp logged 10 games for the defending champions, playing sparingly on offense and catching his lone target for an 11-yard gain. If he clears waivers, there's a good chance Kemp lands on the Chiefs' practice squad.

Elevated to active roster

The Chiefs signed Kemp to their active roster Saturday, Matt Derrick of Chiefs Digest reports.

Back down to practice squad

Kemp reverted to the Chiefs' practice squad after being activated for Sunday's 35-9 win against the Jets, per the NFL's official transaction log.

Analysis: Kemp played 19 special-teams snaps along with 12 offensive snaps for the Chiefs' high-powered attack, though he was unable to make any notable contributions on the stat sheet. The Hawaii product has already suited up in seven games for the defending champions this season, meaning he very well may be right back up to the active roster for a Week 9 home test against Carolina.

Rises to active roster

The Colts elevated Kemp to the active roster Saturday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Analysis: Kemp was elevated for last week's blowout win over the Chiefs and recorded an 11-yard reception on his lone target. Sammy Watkins (hamstring) is still out of the lineup, and since Sunday's game against the Jets could out of hand quickly, Kemp may garner some garbage time reps.

Drops back to practice roster

Kemp reverted to the Chiefs' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's official transaction log.

Analysis: Kemp logged his first offensive snaps of the season Sunday against the Broncos and caught his lone target for 11 yards in the blowout win. He may be elevated again Week 8 against the Jets depending on whether Sammy Watkins (hamstring) is available.

Elevates to active roster

The Chiefs elevated Kemp to the active roster Saturday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Analysis: Kemp was elevated to the active roster last week with Sammy Watkins (hamstring) out, so he'll get the call again with Watkins sidelined for Week 7. The 25-year-old has yet to see a snap on offense this season, seeing all of his 55 snaps on special teams.

Oct 25, 2020 7:22 AM EST


Returns to practice squad

Kemp reverted to Kansas City's practice squad Tuesday, per the NFL's official transaction log.

Analysis: The 25-year-old served as an extra player for Monday's win over the Bills and played a pair of offensive snaps. Sammy Watkins (hamstring) was unavailable, so there would likely need to be another injury to the receiving corps for Kemp to have a chance of rejoining the active roster and being a factor on offense.

Oct 20, 2020 5:06 PM EST


Reverts back to Kansas City

Kemp agreed to sign with the Chiefs' practice squad Thursday, Nate Taylor of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Kemp was cut by the Chiefs on Tuesday, however, he'll return to the team with another shot to make the 53-man roster. The 25-year-old suited up for all 16 games with the Chiefs in 2018, logging two targets the entire season.

Oct 8, 2020 3:39 PM EST


Let go by Chiefs

The Chiefs waived Kemp on Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Analysis: Kemp has only played on special teams through four games, and the Chiefs decided he was expendable. If the Hawaii product clears waivers, he could return to the Chiefs' practice squad.

Oct 6, 2020 2:04 PM EST


Rejoins Chiefs

The Chiefs re-signed Kemp on Wednesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Analysis: Kemp is fully healthy after having missed all of 2019 due to a torn ACL and MCL, so he'll be ready to compete for a special-teams role with his former team. The 25-year-old suited up for all 16 games with the Chiefs in 2018, during which span he was targeted twice.

Aug 19, 2020 5:44 PM EST


Becomes free agent

The Chiefs won't tender Kemp (knee), making him an unrestricted free agent, Terez A. Paylor of Yahoo Sports reports.

Analysis: The 24-year-old didn't see game action in 2019 after he suffered a torn ACL and MCL during training camp. Kemp suited up in all 16 games for the Chiefs in 2018, however, playing in 299 special-teams' snaps. If healthy, Kemp will have a few suitors for his services, but he'll likely vie for a depth receiving role in 2020.
