Free agent tight end joins offence that is ready to score points in 2013.
NFL.com report that Anthony Fasano has joined the Kansas City Chiefs on a three year deal, to be worth $12.6m.
The former Miami Dolphin will help build a receiving corps which already involves fellow tight end Tony Moeaki and wide receiver Dwayne Bowe.
This also comes at a time where the Chiefs are also interested in former Indianapolis Colts receiver Donnie Avery, as reported on profootballtalk.com.
The Chiefs are clearly looking to build an offence that will suit Alex Smith. Big and strong tight ends who will take the bulk of the load, taking the short and intermediate routes. The receivers will look to take defences deep, and work off of play action.
The team will be methodical in their offensive mindset next season, and won’t risk it all on big plays. Instead, they will build fromt the basis of Jamaal Charles’ strong running game and work from there.
The Chiefs are fairly average on defence – something that may be addressed in the middle rounds of the draft this year. If so, then not only can Kansas City challenge for a wild card spot, they could also be in the running to win the AFC West.
