Chiefs sign tight end Richard Gordon

The Chiefs brought back veteran tight end Richard Gordon on Tuesday, just three months after he was released during training camp.

To make room for Gordon, the team released first-year pro Phillip Supernaw.

Gordon, who is listed at 6 feet 4 and 268 pounds, joined the Chiefs last December and caught one pass for 3 yards with the team. He re-signed with the Chiefs in the offseason but was released shortly before the regular-season opener.

Gordon signed with the Tennessee Titans in October and started two games but did not log any stats. He was released a week ago to make room for outside linebacker Kaelin Burnett.

Gordon, a fourth-year pro who played at the University of Miami, was taken in the sixth round of the 2011 NFL Draft by the Oakland Raiders. For his career, Gordon has caught four passes for 14 yards and a touchdown.

The Chiefs signed Supernaw from the Baltimore Ravens’ practice squad in early November after the season-ending injury to third-string tight end Demetrius Harris. Since then Supernaw has played in two games and caught one pass for 3 yards.
