Chiefs position analysis: tight end

The roster of the Kansas City Chiefs is at the NFL limit of 90 players. While they could still make a personnel move or two, the roster they have now is at least close to the one they will take to training camp this summer at Missouri Western State University.

Here, we'll continue a series that looks at their roster by position. This time, it's the tight ends. We started with the running backs and the quarterbacks.

With the Chiefs last year: Richard Gordon, Demetrius Harris, Travis Kelce, Adam Schiltz

New to the Chiefs: James O'Shaughnessy

Analysis: The Chiefs were so encouraged by Kelce's debut season last year they felt comfortable in releasing last year's starter, Anthony Fasano. Kelce's numbers should only increase now that he's playing a full-time role. The Chiefs two years ago took a chance on Harris, a basketball player who played no football in college. They haven't received much of a payoff yet, but it could still be coming, perhaps as soon as this year. What the Chiefs may lack this year is the ability to utilize this season is the ability to go with three tight ends. They were very successful with those formations last year until Harris' season ended midway through because of a broken foot. One leading candidate to be the third tight end, Gordon, is a journeyman. The other, O'Shaughnessy, is a fifth-round draft pick from Illinois State who will likely take some time to develop. Schiltz spent time on the Chiefs' practice squad last year.
