Chiefs sign Donnie Avery

ESPN.com news services

The Kansas City Chiefs gave new quarterback Alex Smith another weapon Wednesday, signing wide receiver Donnie Avery.

Avery set career highs in receptions (60) and yards (781) in 2012, his first season with the Indianapolis Colts. He also had three touchdown receptions and has 12 in his career, which also includes stops with the St. Louis Rams and Tennessee Titans.

On Tuesday, the Chiefs signed former Miami Dolphins tight end Anthony Fasano, who is expected to compete with Tony Moeaki for the starting job.

The moves continue what's been a busy offseason for the Chiefs under new general manager John Dorsey and coach Andy Reid. Last week, they signed wide receiver Dwayne Bowe to a five-year, $54 million deal and punter Dustin Colquitt to a five-year, $18.75 million deal, and placed the franchise tag on left tackle Branden Albert, promising him $9.83 million for the 2013 season.
