Panthers waived CB De'Quan Menzie.

24-year-old Menzie signed a reserve/futures deal with Carolina earlier this offseason. A 2012 fifth-round pick of the Chiefs, he'll look to latch on with another team as training camp depth.

Lions claimed CB De'Quan Menzie off waivers from the Chiefs.

A 2012 fifth-round pick of the Chiefs, Menzie's rookie season was a wash due to injury. A slot specialist, Menzie is a solid 5-foot-11, 202 pounds, but hast just 4.67 speed. It's why the Chiefs moved him to safety before shifting him back to corner. He's not a bad flier for the DB-needy Lions.

Chiefs waived CB De'Quan Menzie and OG Lucas Patterson.

Menzie was graded as the top slot corner in last year's draft by NFL Films' Greg Cosell, but missed the majority of the offseason program with a hamstring injury before an undisclosed ailment cost him all but one game in the preseason. The Chiefs shifted him to safety before moving him back to corner. There's a decent chance Menzie will get claimed on waivers, but his future is as clear as mud.

Chiefs placed CB De'Quan Menzie on injured reserve, ending his season.

A fifth-round pick, Menzie missed the majority of the offseason program with a hamstring ailment before missing Kansas City's final three preseason games with an undisclosed injury. He'll be back to compete for a spot on special teams next summer.

The Chiefs have moved rookie De'Quan Menzie back to cornerback.

Menzie, who ran a 4.67 forty coming out of Alabama, practiced at safety during minicamps. More of a slot corner who will likely focus on special teams as a rookie, Menzie stands a reasonable chance at a roster spot in Kansas City.

Chiefs rookie S De'Quan Menzie (hamstring) returned to practice on Monday.

NFL analyst Greg Cosell's top slot corner in the draft, Menzie is now healthy enough to compete for a roster spot in training camp.

Fifth-round rookie S De'Quan Menzie is sidelined at Chiefs OTAs with a hamstring injury.

It's an ill-timed injury for Menzie, who is missing out on first team reps with starters Eric Berry (ACL surgery) and Kendrick Lewis (torn pectoral) both sidelined. Menzie should be ready for June's minicamp.
Tue, May 22, 2012 11:26:00 PM

Chiefs signed No. 146 overall pick CB De'Quan Menzie to a four-year contract.

Based on film study, NFL Films analyst Greg Cosell gave Menzie the edge over Brandon Boykin as the top slot corner in this year's draft. The Chiefs started him out at safety in rookie minicamp, though, with the idea that he will still be an option in sub-packages.
Wed, May 16, 2012 10:10:00 AM

Chiefs fifth-round pick De'Quan Menzie is expected to be moved to safety in Kansas City.

Menzie was largely a slot corner at Alabama, getting picked on outside opposite Dre Kirkpatrick. He has safety wheels (4.6s), and could be the third option there behind Eric Berry and Kendrick Lewis. Donald Washington is also in the mix.

Chiefs selected Alabama DB De'Quan Menzie with the No. 146 overall pick in the 2012 NFL draft.

Menzie goes 5-foot-11, 202 and ran a 4.67 forty at the Combine. He played the old Javier Arenas role at Alabama, covering the slot on all passing downs but often getting picked on when lined up outside across from Dre Kirkpatrick. A 20-game starter after his JUCO transfer, Menzie managed just one interception in Division I. He may be ticketed for safety in Kansas City.
