Hence the Fasano signing.

Chiefs head coach Andy Reid revealed Wednesday that just after the 2012 season, TE Tony Moeaki had arthroscopic surgery on his left knee. That’s the same knee where he tore his ACL in the final pre-season game of the 2012 season.

Reid said Moeaki should be ready to go when the Chiefs get on the field for OTAs in May and June.

Moeaki and his injury history were part of the equation that led to the signing of TE Anthony Fasano to a contract that averages out to $4 million per season.

“Tony had a little knee surgery at the end of the season so it’s important that he get healthy,” Reid said. “He’s up here (Chiefs facility) working on that, the rehab part of it. The combination of those two (Moeaki and Fasano) we are looking at as a real positive.”

Reid was always looking for pass catchers among the tight ends, and he had some with the Eagles that put together a lot of catches and yards, guys like Brent Celek, Chad Lewis, Lee Smith and Clay Harbor out of Missouri State.
Fasano knows all about them because he grew up in New Jersey as a Giants fan.

“I watched him beat the Giants a lot with the Eagles and I saw a lot of tight ends have success,” said Fasano. “As soon as they came into play in free agency, I dove into them a little bit deeper and I think they are very friendly (to tight ends).”

Just in Fasano’s 7 seasons in the league with the Cowboys and then Dolphins, he’s seen the tight end position undergo quite a Renniasance.

“You can tell the tight end is becoming a very valuable part of the offense,” Fasano said. “Their roles have changed. The type of player that plays that position has changed. A lot of teams have good tight ends and they seem to be moving around awful fast. ”

Fasano is not one of those new age tight ends; he’s an old-school TE, one that blocks and catches the ball (205 career catches for 2,373 yards and 24 TD catches.)

“I’ve been asked to block a bunch in my career,” Fasano said. “I’ve also had the chance to be a reliable receiver. I think all of that makes for a good tight end, and from what I suspect, that type of tight end is going to be needed in this offense.”

I hope injuries don't ruin what I feel could be a pretty good TE.

These are routine things that they do in the offseason. They probably knew it needed cleaned up during the season..when they do these during the year a player misses 2-3 games.

Tony better suit up, or ship out... if this surgery doesnt clear him up, ready to go for 16 games, sorry but well yeah bye.

It would be too bad, he's flashed nicely both blocking and receiving, but its get right time or never.

He could be a good option for Smith in this offense if he can stay healthy. *trying to stay positive*

I think we definitely being in another TE. I like TM, but you can't trust him to stay.healthy.

Isn't Martin Rucker still on this team? Will be interesting to see if the chemistry with Chase is still there.

For whatever reason, he's still listed on the kcchiefs.com roster but with no Fasano listing.

This guy is the Brodie Croyle of TEs. Been that way his whole career.

Anything we get from him I consider gravy.

The Fasano signing might be the smartest move of the offseason. Hes not spectacular, but hes steady and always available.

No, he's gone

He hunted ducks in nebraska for a day or two with a friend of mine last november or december & he introduced himself as a chief

So glad Scooter Pioli traded Tony Gonzalez for that third-round pick!

So glad Scooter drafted Moeaki instead of Jimmy Graham or Aaron Hernandez!

Scooter... the CoMO of NFL GMs. No matter what he does, it's wrong.

Moeaki has been a bust. I realize it's not his fault, but he can't get his body healthy.

At some point in the very near future, it will be time to move on.

I hope he stays healthy and performs this season. If that happens, I don't see them getting rid of him.

he has to have a breakout year while splitting time with a TE they brought in who will most likely beat him out for the starting job

good luck with that

His best chance at having any success is being TE2 and getting limited reps.

IMO he should have been cut and some other team could carry his yearly IR salary...
