KANSAS CITY, MO - SEPTEMBER 11: Tight end Jake O'Connell #85 of the Kansas City Chiefs catches a pass for a first down past linebacker Nick Barnett #50 of the Buffalo Bills during the second quarter on September 11, 2011 at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, Missouri.

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.
