Buffalo Bills showing interest in Anthony Fasano, per report

New, comments

The Buffalo Bills are basically gutting and remodeling the tight end position, and are going to need more than just Charles Clay (if they can get him) to fill the position back out.

The Buffalo Bills remain in full pursuit of Miami Dolphins tight end Charles Clay in free agency, but after releasing four-year starter Scott Chandler on Wednesday, the Bills are also in need of more bodies at that position, as well.

Anthony Fasano is a veteran, blocking-oriented tight end that, after his release from Kansas City, has visited with Cincinnati and, most recently, Tennessee. If he gets away from the Titans' facilities without a contract, he has another suitor in Rex Ryan, Greg Roman, and the Bills, according to Mike Garafolo of FOXSports.com.

Fasano, who turns 31 in April, has put together a solid 10-year career as a starter at this point between stints in Dallas, Miami, and Kansas City. A solid run blocker - he has only graded out negatively in that area by Pro Football Focus once in his career (though that was in 2014) - Fasano would fill that role in Buffalo, perhaps situated behind Clay on the depth chart, while adding some ability in the passing game, as well.

In his 10 pro seasons, Fasano has accumulated 253 receptions for 2,799 yards and 31 touchdowns.
