A familiar face from the Kansas City Chiefs training camp is back again as Scott Pioli has resigned Anthony Becht to the roster, bringing back a veteran tight end who should help the Chiefs blocking game on the edge. If anything, he could also help broadcast the games when he's not active. From the official press release:

Becht (6-6, 270) has appeared in 160 games (128 starts) with the N.Y. Jets (2000-04), Tampa Bay (2005-07), St. Louis (2008), Arizona (2009) and Kansas City (2011)­­­. He has caught 185 passes for 1,511 yards (8.2 avg.) with 21 touchdowns. He has also played in nine postseason contests (eight starts), recording 11 receptions for 84 yards (7.6 avg.) with a TD. He originally entered the NFL as a first-round pick (27th overall) of the Jets in 2000.

It remains to be seen how this will affect the current tight ends on the roster.
