Tony Moeaki announced on Twitter that he was released by the Chiefs

Everybody pretty much knew this roster decision was going to be made by the Kansas City Chiefs.

There had to be a feeling deep down that tight end Tony Moeaki knew his time in Kansas City was soon coming too an end. Now that feeling has officially turned into reality.

Moeaki tweeted earlier today that he was released by the Chiefs organization. With this decision, the Chiefs will move forward with tight end Anthony Fasano and rookie Travis Kelce. He’s actually dealing with a fractured shoulder at the moment so he’s likely to pick up an injury settleman.

The former third round pick missed the entire 2011 season with a torn ACL but later came back and caught only 33 passes and one touchdown last season.

Kansas City will get more than 33 receptions from Anthony Fasano who has a career 205 receptions with 2,373 receiving yards and 24 touchdowns. A pretty good tight end for rookie Kelce to back up.

Last season in Miami, Fasano pulled in 41 receptions for 332 yards and five touchdowns.

Moeaki will more than likely sit out the remainder of this season and try to make a roster next season.
