Report: Chiefs near deal with tight end Anthony Fasano
The Chiefs continue to retool their offense under new coach Andy Reid. Tight end Anthony Fasano was close to signing with the team as free agency began, according to a report.
The sides "had extremely fruitful talks" during the three-day negotiating period and could soon reach a deal, Garafolo reported.
Fasano, 28, had a career-high 41 catches for Miami last season and caught five touchdown passes each of the past two years. He joins tight end Tony Moeaki to give new Kansas City quarterback Alex Smith two solid targets over the middle.
Kansas City released tight end Kevin Boss last month.
After two seasons with the Cowboys, Fasano spent the past five in Miami, catching a career-high seven touchdowns in 2008.
