Kansas City Chiefs football is right around the corner! KC Kingdom is gearing you up for the 2014 season by providing player profiles until the very first regular season kickoff! Today’s featured player is tight end Anthony Fasano.
How did Anthony Fasano become a Kansas City Chief?
Fasano played college football at Notre Dame and was a second round draft pick by the Cowboys in 2006. Fasano spent two years in Dallas before moving on to Miami, where he had some of his best years. His first year as a Dolphin he recorded 454 receiving yards and seven touchdowns.
Fasano spent four more seasons in Miami and then signed with the Chiefs in the 2013 offseason. The Chiefs were in desperate need of vamping up their offense, and were hoping Fasano could come in and make a difference in the tight end spot.
Fasano started nine games during his first year as a Chief. He struggled with staying healthy and as a result only recorded three touchdowns in his nine games in 2013. He showed promise, but it was hard for him to get in a groove because he kept having to spend time on the bench due to different injures and a concussion.
Anthony Fasano was a good pick up for Kansas City. He along with 2013 third round draft pick Travis Kelce have the potential to be two dangerous tight ends for this Chiefs offense. Sadly, we didn’t get to see any of that pairing last season due to Kelce being placed on injured reserve before the regular season even started.
I think now that Kelce is ready and primed for playing time, he and Fasano will be unstoppable. Fasano will likely be the starter since Kelce is pretty much a second year rookie due to not playing at all in 2013.
Look for Anthony Fasano to have a big season in 2014.
