This move seems familiar.
The Kansas City Chiefs announced that they've re-signed TE Jake O'Connell and released TE Anthony Becht. The Chiefs made the exact opposite move -- releasing O'Connell and signing Becht -- on Sept. 16.
O'Connell was the Chiefs 2009 seventh round pick and has been on and off the team, and the practice squad, in his two-plus years with the team. He has one catch on the season, in the season opener, which went for 15 yards. For his career, he has six receptions for 53 yards.
Becht, a 10-year NFL veteran, went down in Sunday's game against the San Diego Chargers with what appeared to be a hamstring injury. No word on whether his release is related to that injury. He didn't record a catch in his short time with the Chiefs.
The Chiefs have TE Leonard Pope on the first team of the depth chart followed by O'Connell.
