Fox Sports One, NFL Insider, Mike Garafolo announced via Twitter on Friday, that former Kansas City Chief, tight end Anthony Fasano has reached an agreement with the Tennessee Titans. The well-traveled tight end was drafted by the Dallas Cowboys in the second round of the 2006 draft, and has played for Miami, and Kansas City.
It all came down to the salary cap, and Fasano was due to make $2.8 million with the Chiefs in 2015, and became yet another victim of the NFL’s business policies. The NFL.com reported that the team would save $1.96 million with the move. Around The NFL writer, Marc Sessler also reported that Chiefs head coach, Andy Reed was concerned that Fasano was logging more snaps(638) than their young tight end, Travis Kelce(634).

Known as primarily a blocking tight end, during his two-year stint in Kansas City, Fasano caught 48 passes for 426 yards.
ESPN Titan’s reporter, Paul Kuharsky reported that in a conversation with former Titan tight end, Frank Wycheck, that Fasano has great hands, and is underrated.
Paul Kaharsky said on Friday,
"They used a lot of guys to try to help Delanie Walker, who had a career year despite being overextended.The Titans now have Walker, Fasano, Stevens, Thompson, Dorin Dickerson and Brett Brackettunder contract at tight end. They would likely keep four."
During his career, the 30 year-old Anthony Fasano has logged 253 catches for 2799 yards, and scored 31 touchdowns.
The Tennessee Titans continue to make baby steps in the 2015 NFL Free Agency period, but along with the other moves they have made since it all started on Tuesday, I think they have done as well as expected.
This team had a lot of holes to fill, and with 25 names on their UFA list, it isn’t over yet.
