The second-year tight end will look to beat out his competition on the Buffalo Bills to be a regular on game day as the third tight end.
Tommy Sweeney, the reliable pass catcher out of Boston College, had a solid season for a seventh round draft pick for the Buffalo Bills. He appeared in the first five games of the season due to the Tyler Kroft injury. However, once Kroft returned to the team in Week 7 Sweeney would become inactive until the meaningless Week 17 game versus the New York Jets.
Sweeney is not a gifted tight end by any means, as he has underwhelming speed and physical traits but works hard and can find ways to produce in different ways. Sweeney has had good chemistry with each of the Bills quarterback, producing well in the preseason when given the chance.
Despite Sweeney only appearing in six games for the Bills he showed he can be a capable NFL tight end and rarely looked out of place. Sweeney has reliable hands and can be depended on to come down with the ball in many situations.
