The Titans have a strong interest in former Chiefs kicker Ryan Succop and indications are they could sign him as early as Monday, according to sources familiar with the situation.

Succop would replace kicker Travis Coons on the roster. The Titans elected to keep Coons – and release Maikon Bonani – when they trimmed their roster to 53 over the weekend.

Fantasy Impact:

If a deal is reached, Succop would face his old team in the regular season opener on Sunday in Kansas City. The Chiefs released him on Saturday after five seasons. With the Chiefs, Succop was usually a top-10 play and could be a lower end K1 with the Titans as well.

Chiefs cut K Ryan Succop

The most significant Chiefs cup is the release of K Ryan Succop, who has served as the Chiefs' starting placekicker for the last five seasons.

Succop made 81 percent of his field goals over five years but got beat out by rookie Cairo Santos, despite a strong preseason performance. Succop's large cap numbers - $2.7 million this year, $3.5 million next year and $3.2 million in 2016 - could have also played a role, as Santos will only make a fraction of that.

By cutting Succop, the Chiefs stand to gain roughly $2 million in cap space this year, $2.5 million next year and $3 million in 2016.

Fantasy Impact:

Succop was a decent fantasy option last year but the job now belongs to Santos. Santos is already ranked as K1 heading into Week 1 as he's 10th on our list.

One of the most talked about storylines throughout training camp was the battle between veteran kicker Ryan Succop and undrafted rookie Cairo Santos.

Through two preseason games, both kickers have proven what they can do. They’ve both hit every extra point (3-3) and are both perfect from field goal range.

Santos is 2 for 2 with a 44-yard field goal against the Bengals, while Succop is 3 for 3 with a 54-yard field goal against the Panthers.

“It’s like watching the World Cup,” HC Andy Reid said. “I love watching the competition, but they’re so close every day, it’s crazy. They’re both right there.”

Chiefs rookie free agent Cairo Santos has the ability to kick in the NFL. He’s only 5-foot-8 and 160 pounds, but he has a strong enough leg to handle the job. In choosing between Santos and incumbent Ryan Succop, the Chiefs need to decide how comfortable they would be with a rookie as their kicker. From all appearances, they don’t fear that with this particular rookie. They believe he has the mental toughness to be an NFL kicker. But Succop has experience getting past a slump. He hit all three of his field goal attempts in last year’s playoff game a week after missing the potential game-winning kick in San Diego. That kind of mental toughness is essential for a kicker. Santos’ salary is about $1.5 million less than that of Succop but it’s difficult to put a price tag on Succop’s experience at a pressure-filled position. Both players have kicked well in camp.

Backup quarterback Tyrod Taylor directed two fourth-quarter touchdown drives for Baltimore, the first ending with Jalen Parmele’s go-ahead 10-yard touchdown run with 7:16 remaining as the Ravens defeated the Kansas City Chiefs 31-13.

Taylor later added a 5-yard TD run of his own, a dive to the right pylon that withstood a video review. He finished 5 for 11 for 88 yards.

Kansas City’s Tyler Palko completed eight of 13 passes for 95 yards, but produced 10 points in his three drive - a tying 4-yard touchdown pass to Terrance Copper late in the second quarter and a 12-play march culminating in a tiebreaking 30-yard field goal by Ryan Succop with 6:58 left in the third quarter.

The Ravens played Joe Flacco into the third quarter and he completed 12 of 24 passes for 124 yards, while Chiefs starting quarterback Matt Cassel was 6 for 14 for 73 yards.

RB Jamaal Charles was named the winner of the Chiefs MVP Award while K Ryan Succop earned the ROY Award. Each player will be presented their award at the 40th annual 101 Banquet on March 6th at the Westin Crown Center.

Charles led the Chiefs in nearly all major offensive categories, including rushing yards, yards from scrimmage, combined net yards and total TDs. He became the first player in NFL history to rush for over 1,100 yards on fewer than 200 carries. He became the ninth player in franchise history to rush for 1,000 yards and was the first to accomplish the feat since 2006. All incredible marks considering Charles spent just over half a season as the club’s feature back.

Chiefs chairman Clark Hunt praised rookie kicker Ryan Succop, whose strong leg on kickoffs improved the Chiefs’ field position and gave the team a long-range option on field goals, something Kansas City lacked the past two seasons.

Hunt said he’ll remain patient as long as things continue improving. Regardless, Hunt said he’s eager for a new season to begin — and to see how all those changes begin to shape the Chiefs.

Five days after agreeing to contract terms with their third and final seventh-round pick, the Chiefs announced Tuesday that Ryan Succop is officially under contract.

Succop has a nearly 60-yard range. Whether it goes straight or not, though, was a question throughout his final two college seasons, and that'll be something he has to address at Chiefs camp.
