The Kansas City Chiefs announced this evening that they have signed free agent tight end, Kevin Brock. From the Chiefs official press release:

"KANSAS CITY, Mo. – The Kansas City Chiefs announced on Monday that the club has signed free agent tight end Kevin Brock.Brock (6-5, 249) originally entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent with the Carolina Panthers in 2009. He first joined the Chiefs on Feb. 12, 2013 after stints in Buffalo (2011-12), Oakland (2010-11), Dallas (2010), Chicago (2009-10), Pittsburgh (2009) and with the New York Jets (2009). He has played in two games, both with the Bills in 2011, recording two receptions for 27 yards (13.5 avg.). Since entering the NFL, Brock has primarily served as a practice squad member. The Hackensack, N.J., native, played tight end at Rutgers. He prepped at Hackensack High School in his hometown."

This makes perfect sense for a couple of reasons. First, starting TE Anthony Fasano got a little banged up in Sunday’s contest against the Dallas Cowboys. Combine that with the chronic knee problems that third round rookie Travis Kelce has had since the preseason, and it’s easy math to figure out why general manager John Dorsey and head coach Andy Reid figured they needed another tight end on the 53-man roster.

Brock makes four tight ends on the Chiefs including Fasano, Kelce and Sean McGrath who, in addition to having the most epic beard in the AFC, also caught two passes for 31 yards on Sunday.
