The Kansas City Chiefs have made a surprising move by re-signing a tight end on a one-year deal.
Despite missing some games last season due to a hip injury, the tight end has proven to be one of the best-blocking Titans on the team, making him a valuable addition to the roster.
Along with the legendary Travis Kelce, the duo makes an explosive target for the Chiefs passer Patrick Mahomes.
While the Chiefs are eyeing acquiring some weapons, and one of them is OBJ, their focus remains on their tight ends. The decision to bring back the TE means the team will keep their top four tight ends from last year, but rumors suggest they may add another player at the position in the upcoming draft.
Travis Kelce gets back his partner-in-crime
As the Kansas City Chiefs prepare for the upcoming NFL season, questions arise regarding the future of their tight-end position in order to assist Travis Kelce.
To quash these questions, the Chiefs have re-signed the explosive tight end Blake Bell, as per NFL Insider Ian Rapoport.

While current star player Travis Kelce continues to dominate on the field, the team will eventually need to consider finding his replacement. In the meantime, the return of Blake Bell on a one-year deal is sure to excite fans as they eagerly anticipate the start of the season.
Bell’s presence not only provides added protection for quarterback Patrick Mahomes but also opens up opportunities for offensive weapons on the field.
The Chiefs’ decision to re-sign Bell will undoubtedly impact the team’s tight-end strategy moving forward, and fans can’t wait to see what the future holds.
Bell’s presence on the field has been minimal in the last season with just one touchdown and 10 yards on the field in three games he played. Fans are left wondering if he will continue to be Kelce’s partner in crime on the field or if the team has other plans in store for their tight ends. As the season approaches, only time will tell.
