The Buffalo Bills drafted Tommy Sweeney in the seventh round of the 2019 NFL Draft and is set to be a free agent after completing the final year of his rookie contract. He would actually be the starting tight end for his first career NFL game due to injuries at the position but over the years he has struggled to maintain a role in this offense.
This past season, the Bills brought in O.J. Howard to be that number two tight end and while he wasn’t the answer, Tommy Sweeney was also passed on the depth chart by Quintin Morris. The former undrafted free agent spent last season on the practice squad and was the team’s number two tight end this past season.
As for Tommy Sweeney, he was active for only five games this season and played only 68 snaps with only one reception for seven yards. The Buffalo Bills are likely to explore free agency or the NFL Draft to add depth to the tight end position this offseason behind Dawson Knox.
