Report: Chiefs close to signing Fasano*
By Bill Williamson
USA Today is reporting the Kansas City Chiefs are close to signing tight end Anthony Fasano.
Fasano, 28, had 41 catches with Miami last season. He is considered a solid second tight end. He has good hands and blocks well. The Chiefs’ starter is Tony Moeaki. He has big talent, but he has had difficulty staying healthy.
The Chiefs cut Kevin Boss because of health issues. So a Fasano signing makes sense for the Chiefs.
Meanwhile, the agent for Jets defensive lineman Mike DeVito said he will visit the Chiefs. DeVito played for new Kansas City defensive coordinator Bob Sutton with the Jets. DeVito is considered a stout defensive lineman.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting Pittsburgh running back Rashard Mendenhall may choose between the Denver Broncos and the Arizona Cardinals and he will visit both teams. He has a history with new Arizona coach Bruce Arians in Pittsburgh.
Schefter is also reporting the Broncos will visit with cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie. He’d be a pretty nice get for Denver.
NFL Network is reporting Colts cornerback Jerraud Powers will visit the Cardinals and the Chargers. The Chargers have expressed a lot of interest.
*UPDATE: Schefter reports the Fasano deal is done in Kansas City.
