Anthony Fasano is a tight end for the Kansas City Chiefs. He previously played for the Dallas Cowboys and Miami Dolphins and was a Mackey Award finalist while playing collegiately for the University of Notre Dame.

Early Years

Fasano was born in Glen Ridge, NJ on April 20, 1984. He played football at Verona High School in Verona, NJ, where he played at the varsity level four years as a defensive lineman and tight end. He also lettered in basketball, baseball, and track. He shattered many school records during his four-year football career, including most receptions in a season and a career. He finished his time at Verona with 168 receptions and over 2,500 receiving yards and participated in the U.S. Army All-American Bowl.

University of Notre Dame

Fasano signed a letter of intent to continue his football career at the University of Notre Dame. He didn’t see the field as a freshman for the Fighting Irish, but he played in 11 games as a sophomore, catching 18 passes for 169 yards and two touchdowns. He started nine games as a junior in 2004 and finished with 367 receiving yards and four touchdown receptions. He capped his collegiate career as a finalist for the John Mackey Award, which is given annually to the nation’s top tight end. After graduating, he left the school ranked second all-time in receptions and receiving yards for a tight end.

Dallas Cowboys

Fasano was chosen with the 53rd overall pick in the second round of the 2006 NFL Draft by the Dallas Cowboys. He caught 14 passes for 126 yards while playing in all 16 games as a rookie and caught his first touchdown pass on November 29, 2007 against the Green Bay Packers.

Miami Dolphins

After playing two seasons with the Cowboys, Fasano was traded to the Miami Dolphins on April 25, 2008 in exchange for a fourth round pick. In his first season with Miami, he recorded career-highs with 454 receiving yards and seven touchdown receptions for the playoff-bound Dolphins. On November 16, 2010, he agreed to terms on a two-year extension worth up to $7.75 million to stay with Miami.

Kansas City Chiefs

After five seasons with the Dolphins, Fasano signed with the Kansas City Chiefs as a free agent on March 12, 2013. Due to an ankle injury, he missed seven games and made only 23 receptions for 200 yards and three touchdowns.
