Chiefs, Ricky Seals-Jones agree to one-year contract

The Kansas City Chiefs have signed former Cleveland Browns tight end Ricky Seals-Jones to a one-year contract.

What It Means:

The former undrafted free agent in 2017 spent his first two seasons with the Arizona Cardinals before taking part in 14 games for the Browns last season. Jones caught 14 of 22 targets in Cleveland (63.6%) for 229 yards (16.4 yards per reception), 4 touchdowns, and 10 first downs. He will likely serve as the primary back up to Travis Kelce, a potentially valuable role, but one that only resulted in a combined 19 targets for Blake Bell and Deon Yelder last season.

Seals' Net Expected Points per reception of 1.22 was 5th best among all tight ends with at least 10 receptions last season. He earned a receiving grade of 58.1 from Pro Football Focus, the second-best mark of his three-year career.
