The next catch tight end Clay Harbor hopes to make is Becca Kufrin.

Harbor, who last played in the NFL in 2016, is one of 25 contestants on the next season of ABC's reality dating show "The Bachelorette." The show premieres on May 28.

Host Chris Harrison provided some background on Harbor to Aili Nahas of People Magazine.

"We often have 'professional' athletes on the show, but Clay actually is one! He's in his ninth year playing in the NFL," Harrison said. "But at 30 years old, he's at a bit of a crossroads. He's coming to the end of his NFL career, but he's starting to look for what's next.

"He's very interesting. And he and Becca really get along. She really likes him. He's a very good guy, very sincere, very sweet but also very charismatic."

Harbor already has a leg up on two fellow contestants: Colton Underwood, an undrafted free agent who never played a down in the NFL, and Mike Renner, an analyst for Pro Football Focus.
