One of the first moves the Kansas City Chiefs made when the 2013 NFL league year began this afternoon was to ink former Miami Dolphins TE Anthony Fasano to a four-year contract.
Now we have the details of Fasano’s deal.
From Aaron Wilson:
Anthony Fasano’s deal with Chiefs is four years, $16 million, including $4.5 million signing bonus, per league source.

Wow. The Chiefs are certainly shelling out some cash this offseason. They gave equally healthy contracts to QB Chase Daniel and DE Mike DeVito.
At this point we have no idea what the Chiefs’ cap number is. The feeling is that the Chiefs will have to make some cuts in order to stay under the cap. QB Matt Cassel is expected to be departing soon.
I like this contract and I like this signing. Fasano is a proven NFL player and is a nice asset in the passing game. KC has another talented, albeit often injured, TE in Tony Moeaki. If both Moeaki and Fasano can both stay on the field they could provide two solid targets for Alex Smith.
What do you think, Addicts? Did the Chiefs overpay for Fasano?
