WINNIPEG - Given the tightness of the West Division, it will be interesting to see how NFL cuts affect the race over the last half of the season.

The first domino fell on Monday morning, and it was a big one: the Kansas City Chiefs released slotback Weston Dressler, who helped the Saskatchewan Roughriders win the Grey Cup last season.

Another dominant CFL player who got his walking papers over the weekend was defensive end Alex Hall, who had 24 sacks in 28 games for the Bombers in 2012 and 2013. The Carolina Panthers cut him loose on Sunday.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers released linebacker Damaso Munoz, formerly of the Edmonton Eskimos, on Monday as well. More former CFLers will likely be let go by Saturday, which is when NFL teams must declare their 53-man rosters.
