Anthony Fasano's contract with the Chiefs: 4 years, $16 million

US PRESSWIRE

The Kansas City Chiefs tight end position got some competition when the Chiefs signed Anthony Fasano on the first day of free agency. What's next for the Chiefs tight ends?

The Kansas City Chiefs have reportedly given tight end Anthony Fasano a $16 million contract. This according to multiple reports.

That's a healthy contract. One that makes it clear Fasano will be an important contributor for at least the next couple of seasons (sorta like Kevin Boss's deal ... whoops). It seems like a lot of money for a guy who probably won't have more than 500 yards a season. Blocking and things like that are key ... but obviously I'd like to see that production translated to numbers.

New contracts always affects other players at the same position. For the Chiefs, that's Tony Moeaki, whose rookie contract expires after the 2013 season. Makes you wonder.
