Chiefs Bring Back TE Anthony Becht; Waive 2009 Seventh Round Pick

The Kansas City Chiefs made six personnel moves on Wednesday, headlined by officially placing S Eric Berry on injured reserve, but they're not done making moves this week.

The Chiefs announced that TE Anthony Becht has been re-signed to the team. He was signed in the last week of training camp after previously planning to take a media job. He's a 10-year NFL veteran. If he was on the opening week roster, as a vested veteran, his entire 2011 salary would have been guaranteed, so that tells us his spot on the roster is fluid.

To make room for Becht, the Chiefs released TE Jake O'Connell, the team's 2009 seventh round pick. He has six career receptions for 53 yards, including a 15-yard reception last week against the Buffalo Bills

Another shuffling of the tight ends, a group that will likely be disappointing after losing TE Tony Moeaki for the season. TE Leonard Pope was on the first team of the last depth chart, so Becht slides in behind him, taking O'Connell's spot.
