Chiefs Agree To Four Year Deal With Anthony Fassano: Grade The Move

According to multiple reports, the Kansas City Chiefs agreed to a deal with former Miami Dolphins TE Anthony Fasano almost as soon as the 2013 NFL league year began.

Now we know the contract is for four years, per ESPN.com’s Adam Schefter.


The Chiefs were obviously ready to execute this move and execute it quickly. We’ve seen throughout the offseason that Chiefs GM John Dorsey is very methodical in his approach.

Now it is time to grade the move. Though we don’t know the exact contract details, I thought it would be fun to assign a grade just based on a football perspective.

For me, I think it is a very smart move by Dorsey and Reid. Fasano is a former second-round pick that is a solid blocker and can contribute in the passing game. He’ll be a nice compliment for TE Tony Moeaki.

I give the move a B.

Grade the Anthony Fasano signing.

    Great move! Fasano is better than any TE we have now.

    • Jason

      Maybe more consistent but I’m not ready to say he’s better than moeaki yet

  • steve james

    A as you know Tony won’t play all year.

    • Spencer

    Upgrade over Boss, and can now have a 2 TE set with Moeaki. Good move I think.

    Andy Reid runs a pretty pure West Coast Offense. Think 80s 49ers. Montana wasnt big or had a big arm, but he was accurate and hit receivers in stride. J Rice and F Taylor were pretty big and broke tackles (Bowe needs a big compliment opposite side of him HINT GREG JENNINGS), Dwight Clark was used very well, had great hands which both Moeaki and Fasano are similar physically although will have to prove themselves but you have to be excited about this signing. Roger Craig and Tom Rathman, Jamaal Charles is far faster than Craig and JC runs up the middle very well like Craig could AND JC can catch out of the back field.
    It’s a good time to be a Chiefs fan isnt it?

    It’s just OK. I would rather draft a TE with some playmaker potential. Might still suppose, this gives us a veteran who can block. But smith needs a Fleener or v. Davis, a check down TE that can get some YAC

  • Jake

    Spent to much for THIS guy

    • Jake

      Even La Confora was surprised at the money
