Chiefs add former Cowboys TE Curtis; C Niswanger signs tender

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The Kansas City Chiefs announced Friday that free-agent tight end Tony Curtis has signed a contract with the team.

The announcement came one day after the Chiefs traded 10-time Pro Bowl tight end Tony Gonzalez to the Atlanta Falcons for a 2010 second-round draft pick.

Curtis spent the past three seasons with the Dallas Cowboys and saw action in 36 games, catching 11 passes for 80 yards and three touchdowns.

The Chiefs also announced that center Rudy Niswanger has signed a restricted free-agent tender to remain with the team.

Niswanger started 15 games for Kansas City last season. He entered the NFL as a rookie free agent out of LSU in 2006.

Terms of the deals with Curtis and Niswanger weren't disclosed.
