Keizer signed a contract with the Chiefs on Friday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports. Keizer was on the open market for two weeks after being waived by the Ravens. With the Chiefs not boasting tons of quality depth at tight end behind Travis Kelce, Keizer will have the opportunity to make the final roster as a bench option.
Keizer was waived by the Ravens on Thursday. Keizer latched on with Baltimore on a reserve/future contract in January but now appears to be jettisoned in order to free up a roster spot for someone else. Perhaps he could've stayed around on a team that doesn't have the top three spots on the depth chart all but settled, as the Ravens are well-stocked with Hayden Hurst, Mark Andrews and Nick Boyle. The 6-foot-5 Keizer is still only 24 years old and should find another opportunity elsewhere.
Keizer signed a futures contract with the Ravens on Tuesday, freelance NFL writer Howard Balzer reports. Keizer spent all of 2018 on the Ravens' practice squad after failing to make the active roster out of training camp. He'll aim to fight his way up the depth chart and carve out a role as a special teams player and depth tight end in 2019.
Keizer was waived by the Ravens on Friday. Keizer is an athletic undrafted rookie prospect out of Grand Valley State, but he was evidently the odd man out in a deep Baltimore tight end group. The 23-year-old will be an unrestricted free agent if he goes unclaimed on waivers.
