Keizer (undisclosed) was placed on the reserve/retired list Sunday. All 16 of Keizer's career NFL appearances came for the Chiefs in 2020. The exact cause of his retirement is unknown, but Kansas City will retain the tight end's rights should the 26-year-old Keizer attempt to make a return to the league.
Keizer (undisclosed) was activated off the Chiefs non-football injury list Friday, NFL reporter Aaron Wilson reports. Keizer was primarily a special-teams contributor for the Chiefs in 2020, but he did haul in six receptions for 63 yards across 16 games as well. It is unclear what issue he was dealing with to kick off training camp, but he will now be able to practice with the team and compete for a spot on the final 53-man roster.
Keizer (undisclosed) began camp on the non-football injury list Tuesday, Herbie Teope of The Kansas City Star reports. Keizer returns to the Chiefs on a one-year extension after logging six receptions for 63 yards over 16 games last year for the team. He also played 220 special teams snaps on the season.
Keizer signed a one-year contract with the Chiefs on Tuesday, Kari Williams of 41 KSHB Kansas City reports. In his third season in the league, Keizer finally made his NFL debut in 2020, recording six receptions for 63 yards across 16 games. As long as Travis Kelce is healthy, there's minimal fantasy upside for Keizer.
Keizer logged 302 snaps on offense in 2020 but reeled in just six of his nine targets for 63 yards over the course of the season. Keizer's usage trended a bit toward rushing plays in general, not that he would be frequently targeted on passing downs with skill players like Travis Kelce and Tyreek Hill on the roster. Keizer enters the offseason as an exclusive-rights free agent, meaning the Chiefs can retain him should they choose to offer Keizer a league-minimum contract.
