Chiefs sign veteran tight end who provides depth

The Kansas City Chiefs have signed veteran tight end Tim Wright, he announced Monday evening on his official Instagram account.

Wright, 28, has bounced around the league with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and New England Patriots, and he even won a Super Bowl championship with the Patriots back in 2014.

The Chiefs’ interest in Wright is not new. The organization first put a claim on the 6-foot-4, 242-pound tight end back in June of 2015.

Wright hasn’t played in a regular season game since that season due to a torn ACL in 2016 and a lack of takers in 2017, but the Chiefs are giving him a shot.

From 2013-2015, Wright compiled 89 receptions, 907 yards and 13 touchdowns. If he made the Chiefs, he would likely serve as the No. 3 tight end behind Demertrius Harris.
