Blake Bell

One year was long enough of a time frame for the Chiefs to learn the valuable lesson that you need a great blocker as a tight end. The campaign between stints for Blake Bell on the Chiefs was one season too long, as the team struggled last year to move the chains at times without a dominant player at the position who can block like Bell can.

The Chiefs moved on from Deon Yelder this offseason and retained Nick Keizer, but Bell was brought back to be the Belldozer once again after a one-year stint with the Dallas Cowboys backing up Blake Jarwin.

No one should predict big things statistically for Bell at this point. He’s here as a blocker only and will likely earn less than 10 targets, especially with rookie Noah Gray getting reps as well, but Bell does the dirty work on special teams and in bigger offensive packages. Winning is often in the details and that’s where Bell will make the biggest difference for the Chiefs. A definite underrated addition.
