Kansas City Chiefs Work Out Free Agent Tight Ends

The Kansas City Chiefs, after cutting wide receiver Junior Hemingway, have worked tight ends Mickey Schuler and Zack Pianalto, as well as center/guard Bryan Mattison, as reported by Adam Caplan.

Shuler was drafted by the Minnesota Vikings in the seventh round of the 2010 NFL Draft out of Penn State, and was claimed by the Miami Dolphins after being waived early in the season. The Dolphins waived Shuler prior to the 2011 season and was claimed by the Bengals, yet failed his physical and did not find a team until his return to the Vikings late in the year. He was cut by the Vikings during training camp this season.

Shuler has just two career receptions for 44 yards.

Zack Pianalto was an undrafted free agent originally signed by the Buffalo Bills in 2011 before making his NFL debut later that season with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He has four career receptions for 40 yards.

Bryan Mattison is a former defensive end at Iowa before being shifted to guard in 2009 by the Baltimore Ravens. He played in eight games last season before starting for games for the Rams late in the season.
