Travis Kelce - #87 - Tight End - 6'5" - 260lbs
Sat. Mar 1, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Kelce (knee) will likely be healthy for OTAs, ESPN.com reports.
Impact: After losing his rookie campaign to a knee injury, the 63rd overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft should have every chance to earn a major role in the Kansas City offense. His upside as a receiver far outpaces that of fellow Chiefs tight ends Sean McGrath and Anthony Fasano, the latter of whom figures to hold a significant role because of his blocking. With the Chiefs lacking reliable receivers and favoring a short-to-intermediate passing game, Kelce couldn't ask for a better situation.
Branden Albert - #76 - Tackle - 6'5" - 316lbs
Wed. Feb 26, 2014 | RotoWire
News: The Cardinals and Dolphins are thought to view Albert as a top priority once free agency opens, NFL.com reports.
Impact: It's still possible that the Chiefs will make a run to re-sign the tackle, but it's unclear how aggressive they'll be on that front, with an in-house replacement (Eric Fisher) on hand. Meanwhile, it's undeniable that both the Dolphins and Cardinals have a pressing need to re-tool their offensive lines.
Eric Fisher - #72 - Tackle - 6'7" - 306lbs
Thu. Feb 20, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Fisher, who started 13 games at right tackle, missing three starts in the 2013 regular season and one in the playoffs because of various injuries, could start at left tackle for the Chiefs in 2014, ESPN.com reports.
Impact: Fisher was selected as the number one overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, but endured his share of struggles in his first season as a pro. A big athletic left tackle in college, Fisher was moved to right tackle during his rookie season to accommodate Branden Albert. With Albert scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent this offseason, Fisher could find himself sliding back into his more natural position of left tackle in 2014.
Richard Gordon - #81 - Tight End - 6'4" - 268lbs
Fri. Feb 14, 2014 | STATS
News: The Kansas City Chiefs have signed restricted free agent Richard Gordon to a one-year contract to provide depth at tight end, a position where they struggled through injuries much of last season. The team had not announced the deal Friday, but NFLPA records indicate Gordon will receive $645,000 in 2014.
Impact: Gordon joined the Chiefs in December and appeared in two regular season games, making one catch for 3 yards against San Diego. That was the game in which the Chiefs, already assured of their playoff position, rested virtually all of their starters. The Chiefs also have tight ends Anthony Fasano, Travis Kelce and Sean McGrath on the roster.
