With tight ends Anthony Fasano and Travis Kelce still unable to get on the field for the Kansas City Chiefs, the team worked out a pair of tight ends this week, according to Aaron Wilson and Adam Teicher.
Joe Sawyer and Danny Noble were in Kansas City for workouts as the Chiefs keep their eye on possible upgrades over fourth string tight end Kevin Brock. Third stringer Sean McGrath, who has been pushed into a starting role, seems to have cemented his spot on the roster with 11 catches for 126 yards and at touchdown.
Sawyer first entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent out of Southwestern Oklahoma State with the San Francisco 49ers last season. He was signed by the Buffalo Bills in January, but was released in April.
During his two years at Southwestern Oklahoma State, Sawyer caught 82 passes for 862 yards and six touchdowns.
Noble caught on with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as an undrafted free agent last year out of Toledo, playing in four games. He was part of the Bucs final cuts this year and placed on the practice squad. He was promoted to the active roster on September 21 and was released three days later.
