KANSAS CITY, Mo. – The Kansas City Chiefs on Monday brought in nine free agents for workouts.

Among the group are four tight ends – Brett Brackett, Kyle Adams, Richard Gordon and Matt Veldman – NFL insider Aaron Wilson reports on Twitter.

With Anthony Fasano (ankle) and Travis Kelce (knee) inactive for last week’s game, seeing tight ends in the group isn’t a big surprise.

The team was down to two healthy options at the position against the Philadelphia Eagles – Sean McGrath and Kevin Brock.

Brackett has ties to Chiefs coach Andy Reid from their time in Philadelphia. Reid waived Brackett during the team’s final cuts before the 2012 regular season.

As of Tuesday morning, no reports have surfaced indicating the Chiefs signed a player from Monday’s workouts. However, the NFL’s transaction report won’t be released until Tuesday evening, so there could be some movement.

For a complete rundown, ArrowheadPride.com has an excellent piece on each player and their respective bios.
