Earlier this week, it was reported that the Cleveland Browns were trading tight end Randell Telfair to the Kansas City Chiefs in exchange for one of their linebackers Dadi Nicolas.
Friday’s daily transaction wire for the NFL states that’s not the case anymore. The teams have called off the trade but there was no given reason for why the trade was called off. Both of the players were instead just released from their respective teams.
On Thursday, Orson Charles a tight end that played for the Chiefs was released, probably to make room for Randell Telfair. But now that it’s called off, it will be interesting to see if the Chiefs decide to bring Charles back.

Dadi Nicolas played his college ball with the Virginia Tech Hokies before being drafted in the sixth round by the Kansas City Chiefs in 2016. During his rookie season, he was active in 11 games but never recorded a stat. He suffered an injury in January 2017 that put him on IR. He spent last season on the PUP and never found his way back to the team.
Randell Telfair played his college ball at USC before being selected in the sixth round of the 2015 draft. Telfair played in 30 games in two years with the Browns drawing 19 starts. In 2017, he finished with three receptions for 36 yards.
It will be interesting to see if either of these players gets picked up by anyone in the NFL, or even the team that was trying to trade for the other.
