The offseason is starting much earlier than many Buffalo Bills fans originally anticipated, but reality is starting to set in.
Buffalo enters their offseason with a lot of questions in regards to their own free agents. They also have a couple of areas that need to be improved.
One area that some might not think about as a priority, but could be, is at tight end. The Bills already have 26-year-old Dawson Knox who has been a reliable target for Josh Allen, but adding another talented player next to him is a possibility.
Bleacher Report’s Kristopher Knox believes the Bills could end up going after a top free agent tight end to pair with Knox.
The Buffalo Bills need to add another weapon to their offense, regardless of position
One thing was apparent this past season. The Bills need to add another weapon to this offense. Many fans would like to see it come via wide receiver. While that position does need to be overhauled in a way, adding a top-tier tight end wouldn’t be a bad idea.
Knox is a talented pass catcher, but imagine the possibilities if Buffalo were to add another guy of similar stature.
Some of this year’s free agent tight ends include Dallas’ Dalton Schultz, Miami’s Mike Gesicki and Jacksonville’s Evan Engram. All three of those guys are receiving tight ends with plenty of football left ahead of them.
It wouldn’t be crazy for the Bills to spend on tight end and end up with two great talents at the position. Their own division rival did just that recently. The New England Patriots chose to pay both Hunter Henry and Jonnu Smith in the same offseason, in fact.
Schultz played last year on the franchise tag in Dallas, and the Cowboys obviously would love to keep him as one of Dak Prescott’s favorite targets.
Gesicki seems to be on his way out of Miami, and Engram could have a market after breaking out in Jacksonville this year.
