Chiefs Banking On More Production From Tight Ends

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - The top tight end for the Kansas City Chiefs a year ago currently resides third on the depth chart, trailing a veteran newcomer and a rather unheralded draft pick.

That alone is illustrative of a couple points.

First, the Chiefs didn't get a whole lot of production out of the position last year, when they fielded one of the worst offenses in the NFL. And second, new coach Andy Reid intends to get a whole lot more out of it this season, perhaps to take some of the load off his wide receivers.

That's why he refused to stand pat with Tony Moeaki this offseason, paying big money to lure free agent Anthony Fasano to Kansas City and then spending a third-round draft pick on Travis Kelce.

All three are expected to contribute to the Chiefs' revamped offense beginning Friday night, when they open their preseason schedule in New Orleans.
