Buffalo Bills moves to help Josh Allen limit turnovers: Sign TE Josh Oliver
Finally, the Bills could go out and find another tight end to work alongside Dawson Knox. Back in 2019, Josh Oliver was drafted in the third round by the Jacksonville Jaguars. He came into the league as an interesting, pass-catching tight end out of San Jose State.
Oliver is set to turn just 26 years old in March and will likely be looking for his third team in five seasons. But, the 6-foot-5 tight end is a quality player. He’s only caught 26 career passes, but when asked to do things other than just catch the ball, he’s more than capable.
Last season, Oliver was given a pass blocking grade of 71.0 via Pro Football Focus, proving he can do more than just catch passes. As a tight end that won’t be used every down, he’s had to focus on improving on the little things like pass blocking.
Oliver would come cheap, but he’d be yet another asset in protecting Allen. This is the type of signing that could fly under the radar, but would be a big benefit for Allen in terms of protecting him long-term.
