Chiefs TE Boss done for the season

After getting limited production out of their tight ends in 2011, the Chiefs have signed free agent Kevin Boss to bolster the position. It is a three-year deal for $9 million.

Boss played in 2011 with the Raiders but was released on Tuesday for salary-cap reasons. In his one season in Oakland, he caught 28 passes for 368 yards and three touchdowns. The five-year player's best season came in 2009 with the Giants, when he posted 42-567-5.

The Chiefs lost starting TE Tony Moeaki to a season-ending ACL injury during the preseason and could never find a suitable replacement. Leonard Pope had 24-247-1 as the first-string tight end for Kansas City in 2011, but he is better as a blocker.
