Kansas City Chiefs Work Out A Pair Of Tight Ends

New, comments

The Kansas City Chiefs lost TE Tony Moeaki to a season-ending injury at the end of preseason and right now KC lists just two tight ends on the roster -- TE Leonard Pope and TE Anthony Becht.

Both had notable games last week: Pope had a touchdown pass as well an uncharacteristic three penalties while Becht went down with what appeared to be a hamstring injury.

We're not sure on the status of the injury but the Chiefs are still working out tight ends. Agent Marc Lillibridge says TE Ben Patrick worked out for the Chiefs and agent Jason Bernstein tells Aaron Wilson of Scout.com that Joey Haynos was working out for KC.

Patrick was a 2007 seventh round pick by the Arizona Cardinals when Todd Haley was there. At 6'3", 252 pounds, Patrick has 45 receptions for 446 yards and four touchdowns for his career. He spent time with the New York Giants in training camp before briefly retiring for a few weeks only to be reinstated by the league.

Haynos, 6'8" and 264 pounds, was picked up by the Green Bay Packers as an undrafted free agent in 2008. He saw little time in his rookie year but started eight games in year two catching 19 balls for 162 yards. He was waived/injured by the Packers with a foot injury and caught on with the Jacksonville Jaguars last month in training camp before getting cut.
