Chiefs free agent Steve Maneri isn't coming back

New, comments

Steve Maneri will not be returning to the Kansas City Chiefs. Maneri, an exclusive rights free agent, converted to tight end from offensive line when he joined Kansas City last year.

The Kansas City Chiefs will have to find another offensive tackle to convert to tight end because Steve Maneri is not returning to Kansas City next season. This according to Steve Maneri himself on Twitter.

I figured Maneri would return to the Chiefs to at least compete during the offseason. He was formerly an offensive tackle but the Chiefs had him as a tight end when he came in. Maneri had his moments, with the highlight being a four-catch game against Tampa Bay last season, but he wasn't a significant part of the offense. The Chiefs at tight end have Tony Moeaki, new free agent Anthony Fasano and then Kevin Brock and DeMarco Cosby.

Best of luck to Steve Maneri.
