Chiefs worked out free agent TE Joseph Fauria, sign another TE to practice squad

The Kansas City Chiefs placed TE James O'Shaughnessy on injured reserve this week so it's no surprise to this report that the Chiefs worked out free agent tight ends, signing TE Ross Travis to the practice squad while releasing DT Hebron Fangupo, according to Chiefs Digest.

The Chiefs also worked out former Cardinals and Lions TE Joseph Fauria.

Fauria is in his third season in the league. He caught 18 balls his rookie year and seven of those went for touchdowns. That reminds me of a stat from former Chiefs WR Marc Boerigter, who caught 20 balls in his rookie season with eight of them going for touchdowns.

The Chiefs are probably set at tight end for the moment barring any injuries. Travis Kelce is obviously leading the group while Demetrius Harris and Brian Parker make up the second and third tight ends. The Chiefs still do use multiple tight ends regularly so it's important they have someone they like in there behind Kelce.
