The Kansas City Chiefs have lost another player to free agency.
Tight end Blake Bell, a native of Wichita, Kansas, who helped the Chiefs during their championship run to Super Bowl LIV, is heading to Texas. He has played tight end on National Football League four teams since the 49ers drafted him in the fourth round in 2015: San Francisco, Minnesota, Jacksonville and most recently Kansas City. He spent two years with San Francisco and has bounced around since then between Minnesota, Jacksonville, and Kansas City. Last season he had eight catches for 67 yards in the regular season, as well as one catch for 9 yards in the Chiefs' Super Bowl victory over the 49ers. He caught his first touchdown pass with the Chiefs during the come-from-behind win over the Houston Texans in the divisional round of the playoffs.
Bell has a family history with the Chiefs, so I'm sure his departure is bittersweet.
Some experienced depth was a wise addition for this Cowboys' TE group, and also validates the belief that Blake Jarwin will be the starter in 2020.
Dallas presents Bell with a genuine opportunity to increase his National Football League profile.
