Chiefs | May try to add another tight end

Sat, 03 Sep 2011 23:37:38 -0700

The Kansas City Chiefs have Leonard Pope, Anthony Becht and Jake O'Connell at tight end following the loss of TE Tony Moeaki (knee) for the season. However, all three are blockers and not pass-catching threats. The Chiefs may seek out a pass-catching option at the position, but it will be difficult to find someone capable of replacing Moeaki in the offense because of his versatility.

Chiefs | Loss of Tony Moeaki hurts offense

Sat, 03 Sep 2011 13:18:30 -0700

If the Kansas City Chiefs do indeed lose second-year TE Tony Moeaki (knee) for the season, it will be a devastating blow to the offense. Moeaki was a favorite target last year of QB Matt Cassel and the Chiefs do not have another reliable pass-catcher at the position on roster. Moeaki hauled in 47 passes as a rookie. The Chiefs would likely be forced to start TE Leonard Pope and likely need to find additional help to the position elsewhere.
