Chiefs Add Veteran TE As Free Agency Begins

As soon as the NFL’s 2013 season began at 3 o’clock on Tuesday, the Chiefs had business ready to go into the league office.

They reached an agreement with veteran TE Anthony Fasano, most recently from Miami, who also has played with the Dallas Cowboys.

The 6-4, 255-pound Fasano started all 16 games last year for the Dolphins and was the third leading receiver for rookie quarterback Ryan Tannehill, catching 41 passes for 332 yards and 5 touchdowns.

A veteran of 7 NFL seasons, the New Jersey native entered the NFL as a 2nd-round selection of the Dallas Cowboys in the 2006 Draft, the No. 53 player chosen. Two years later on draft day he was traded to Miami. The common denominator in both of those moves was Bill Parcells – head coach in Dallas, head football guy in Miami.

Fasano, who will be 29 years old in April, is a classic NFL tight end, able to block as well as catch. As a prep player at Verona, N.J. High School and in college at Notre Dame, he’s always shown himself to be a very good athlete.

In 7 NFL seasons, Fasano has played in 108 games, with 205 catches for 2,373 yards and 24 touchdowns.

    Durable, better than our guy Manieri (sp?). Wood be great as a number 2 if Moeaki is back to form.

    Tim; don’t get the “wood” reference, but I’ll go with it. Could be just another good one two punch the new guys are slipping to build the offense.

    Go Chiefs.

    Yep a #2 who will probably play more than our #1. Unless Reid can figure out a way to keep Moeaki on the field…..has not in his entire career, HS, college or pros.

    This looks like a very rock solid signing.
