The search for a second tight end to pair with Dawson Knox enters its third year after free agent signings Jacob Hollister (2021) and O.J. Howard (2022) didn’t work out. In addition, the Bills saw Tommy Sweeney, who had been with the team the past four years, leave in free agency and sign with the New York Giants.
This leaves only two tight ends behind Knox in Quintin Morris, who played in 14 games last season and had eight receptions, and Zach Davidson, who spent last season on the practice squad.
The addition of a quality backup tight end to this offense would open up more flexibility in terms of scheme and play-calling. The Buffalo Bills could use more two-tight end looks that not only could help with the passing game but also the running game, depending on the tight end that was added.
While this is a position that may not be as pressing as linebacker, it is one that the Buffalo Bills will likely prioritize during the NFL Draft.
