This could possibly be the final year that Meoaki will be in Kansas City. It’s obvious he will end up on the injured reserve which would end his season, then could end up being released as soon as Kansas City’s season is finished.
It would be better for the Chiefs to keep him on the roster until after, instead of having to release him with an injury settlement. The 2010 third round pick was already on the roster bubble and can’t seem to stay healthy.
With Moeaki out, rookie Travis Kelce and veteran tight end Anthony Fasano will hold down the tight end position for the new look Kansas City Chiefs this season.
Moeaki has placed in 30 games in four seasons in the league. He’s caught 80 passes for 1,000 yards and four touchdowns. It was unlikely he would have beaten Anthony Fasano for the No. 1 roster spot, but could have competed against the rookie.
