Buffalo Bills TE#2: Jacob Hollister

While the Buffalo Bills are likely hoping that Dawson Knox comes into training camp and looks to clearly be the best tight end, they made sure they had a backup plan just in case. That player is Jacob Hollister, who has had previous stops with the New England Patriots and recently the Seattle Seahawks.

In the past two seasons with the Seahawks, Hollister has had 66 receptions, 558 receiving yards, and six receiving touchdowns. These are not big numbers but when considering he played 46% and 35% of the offensive snaps his first two years he certainly made the most of his time on the field.

Another reason that the Bills probably were interested in adding Hollister is that he hasn’t really had an issue with drops as he has had only three since 2018. This follows a similar train of thought that if the tight end is going to have limited targets, they should make the most of them.
