Former Oklahoma quarterback Blake Bell inks deal with Dallas Cowboys Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

The free agent played and won a Super Bowl with the Kansas City Chiefs last season.

According to Fort Worth Star-Telegram beat reporter Clarence Hill Jr., the Cowboys intend to sign former Chiefs tight end Blake Bell to a one-year deal.

The 2015 fourth-rounder has bounced around the National Football League a bit throughout his career, and he spent the 2019 campaign with the Chiefs. In 15 games (seven starts) last year, the 28-year-old hauled in eight catches 67 yards. 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.

Widely regarded as a blocker, Bell joined the Chiefs in 2019 and quickly became a key component of the Chiefs' highly successful "Tiger Personnel" package (one running back, two tight ends) alongside Travis Kelce.

Bell has a family history with the Chiefs, so I'm sure his departure is bittersweet. In the end, the native of Wichita, Kansas, chose Dallas.

Dallas presents Bell with a genuine opportunity to increase his National Football League profile. The organization is also rostering Dalton Schultz and Cole Hikutini. While Jarwin was re-signed to be the starter, there is more room for Bell to prove himself and earn greater responsibility than behind a five-time Pro Bowler.
