The free agent played and won a Super Bowl with the Kansas City Chiefs last season. Bell was selected out of Oklahoma by the San Francisco 49ers in the fourth round of the 2015 National Football League draft.

Bell will be joining a revamped tight ends depth chart in Dallas. He spent two years with San Francisco and has bounced around since then between Minnesota, Jacksonville, and Kansas City. During the course of the regular season, Bell only had eight receptions on 15 targets for 67 yards.

According to Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, the Cowboys have signed tight end Blake Bell to a one-year deal. The Cowboys lost old reliable Jason Witten to the Las Vegas Raiders in free agency before locking up Blake Jarwin to a four-year deal.

Bell, a quarterback during the majority of his time in an Oklahoma uniform, saw his role transition over the years.

Bell has a family history with the Chiefs, so I'm sure his departure is bittersweet. The organization is also rostering Dalton Schultz and Cole Hikutini. He was never going to be more than second fiddle to Kelce, arguably the best TE in the National Football League today.

The Chiefs expressed interest in bringing back Bell, the source told The Star, before Bell chose Dallas after making what was categorized as a "hard decision".
