Report: Chiefs re-signing veteran TE Blake Bell

The Kansas City Chiefs are re-signing tight end Blake Bell to a one-year deal, NFL Network reported Friday.

Bell, 31, missed most of last season following hip surgery and finished with two catches for 20 yards and one touchdown — the first of his eight-year career — in three games (one start).

The two-time Super Bowl champion has played in 100 games (27 starts) since San Francisco selected him in the fourth round of the 2015 draft.

Known primarily for his blocking, Bell has 60 catches for 641 yards and the one TD with the 49ers (2015-16), Minnesota Vikings (2017), Jacksonville Jaguars (2018), Dallas Cowboys (2020) and Chiefs (2019, 2021-22).
