The Kansas City Chiefs have taken care of a huge need at tight end by coming to terms with former New York Giants and Oakland Raiders TE Kevin Boss. The deal is for $9 million over three years.
Boss spent the first four years of his career with the Giants after being a fifth round pick in 2007. He won a ring with New York his rookie year, catching a 45-yard pass in the victory over the New England Patriots.
The Raiders gave Boss a four-year, $16 million deal just a year ago but (like CB Stanford Routt) was released just a season into the contract.
With Tony Moeaki and Jake O’Connell currently on the Chiefs roster, the team badly needed to add depth. Considering Moeaki is no lock to be at full strength when camp opens up (and not to mention his history of injuries) it was important Kansas City had experience at the position and Boss brings 56 NFL starts with him to the Chiefs.
For the second time in as many days, the Chiefs have gotten great value at a position of need.
