Chiefs sign TE Anthony Becht, waive O'Connell

The Kansas City Chiefs signed veteran tight end Anthony Becht and waived tight end Jake O'Connell on Friday.

Becht, a former first-round pick, has caught 185 passes for 1,511 yards and 21 touchdowns in 158 career games with the New York Jets (2000-2004), Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2005-07), St. Louis Rams (2008) and Arizona Cardinals (2009). The 34-year-old did not play last season.

He originally made the Chiefs' 53-man roster this season, but was cut on September 5.

O'Connell was selected in the seventh round of the 2009 draft by Kansas City and appeared in 20 games -- four starts -- for the Chiefs, catching six passes for 53 yards.
