The Kansas City Chiefs struck early in free agency on Tuesday by coming to terms with TE Anthony Fasano on a four-year deal.
With Keven Boss being released, Tony Moeaki’s injury concerns and new head coach Andy Reid’s offense featuring the tight ends, it was a big need for the Chiefs. One they addressed shortly after free agency officially opened around the league.
Fasano caught 41 passes for 332 yards last season for the Miami Dolphins, including five touchdowns. No Chiefs receiver had more than three (Dwayne Bowe) and they only had eight has a team.
Before his five seasons in South Beach, Fasano spent two seasons with the Dallas Cowboys after being selected in the second round of the 2006 draft. His best year as a pro was in 2008 when he hauled in seven touchdowns and racked up 454 yards while starting all 16 games.
The 28-year-old should be able to top those stats in Kansas City in a Reid-led offense that offers many more weapons than anything the Dolphins put on the field in 2012.
