The Kansas City Chiefs have signed former Cleveland Browns (and Arizona Cardinals) tight end Ricky Seals-Jones to a one-year deal, according to friend-of-the-site (and sleep-deprived) Terez Paylor of Yahoo! Sports. Seals-Jones’ salary numbers aren’t out yet.

Seals-Jones, 25, first entered the league as an undrafted free agent with the Arizona Cardinals. Seals-Jones, who stands at 6 feet 5 and 243 pounds, played in 25 games (six starts) over two seasons with the Cardinals, compiling 46 catches for 544 yards and four touchdowns. The Cardinals waived Seals-Jones at finals roster cuts in 2019, and he was claimed by the Cleveland Browns for the 2019 season.

Seal-Jones played in 14 games (three starts) for the Browns, recording 14 catches for 220 yards and four touchdowns. The Browns chose not to tender Seals-Jones when they were able to land Austin Hooper in free agency.
Move TE. Curious to see what his cap number is. https://t.co/HgeoylDl6D— Craig Stout (@barleyhop) April 3, 2020
The Chiefs reportedly wanted to keep former No. 2 tight end Blake Bell before the Dallas Cowboys signed him away last week. Seals-Jones joins Travis Kelce, Deon Yelder, Nick Keizer and Alize Mack in the tight end room, providing Yelder with some legitimate competition for that No. 2 spot. Chiefs head coach Andy Reid has shown an affinity for multiple-tight end sets, so the Chiefs’ likely expectation is Seals-Jones competes for that spot.
Prior to the NFL, Seals-Jones played four seasons of wide receiver at Texas A&M. He is the cousin of Pro Football Hall of Fame running back Eric Dickerson. Seals-Jones’ best college numbers came as a sophomore, when he registered 45 catches for 560 yards and four touchdowns in 13 games. His production slowed down his redshirt junior year due to a leg injury.
