Chiefs Sign Free Agent Anthony Fasano

It didn’t take long for the Kansas City Chiefs to make their first move in free agency, signing four-year deal with tight end Anthony Fasano immediately after 3 p.m. opening bell. The terms of the deal is not known.

Fasano, 6-4, 255 pounds, is a seven year veteran who has played with the Dallas Cowboys and Miami Dolphins. He’s accumulated 205 receptions for 2,373 yards and 24 touchdowns. Fasano has started every game he has played in for the last five years and has played in 15 or more games in four of the last five years. He’s never played fewer than 14 games.

The move is important as the Chiefs have minimal depth at the tight end position and starter Tony Moeaki is a significant injury risk. Even after the signing the Chiefs could still use one more tight end. Steve Maneri is the only other tight end listed on the roster for Kansas City. But the need is less so than it was just an hour ago.

We’ll have more updates on Fasano and all of the other Chiefs signings as they come in.
