Report: TE Anthony Fasano Will Be Released By The Kansas City Chiefs


Per the NFL Network’s Jeff Darlington, the Kansas City Chiefs will release tight end Anthony Fasano today.

Parting ways with the vet is projected to clear $1,959,375 in cap space.

Fasano’s first season with the Chiefs (2013) was riddled with injuries. In the subsequent year, his efficiency nosedived, as Pro Football Focus (PFF) ranked him No. 61 of 67 (qualifying) tight ends last season.

Severing ties with No. 80 also opens the door for Kansas City plucking a tight end in the draft (or free agency).

Though PFF ranked Kelce No. 4 overall at the position last year, his past is also checkered with injuries. Furthermore, reserves Demetrius Harris and Richard Gordon still remain projects.

Throughout his two-year stint with the Chiefs, Fasano caught 48 receptions for 426 yards and seven touchdowns.
