A day after players wrapped up their spring workouts, Dawson Knox is officially a Buffalo Bill. The rookie tight end signed his contract with the club on Friday.
The rookie tight end had an encouraging spring. Due to injuries suffered by fellow tight ends Tyler Kroft and Jason Croom, afforded Knox the opportunity to take first team reps on offense.
Know put his athleticism on display and made a healthy number of plays in the passing game.
“He’s a very good athlete who tested well,” said GM Brandon Beane. “I saw him live versus South Carolina. Warming up you could just see his athleticism. I didn’t feel that they used him to accentuate some of the things he does well. I do think he is a dual threat. I think he’s got upside.”
Knox was a bit overshadowed in the Ole Miss offense by other receiving targets like fellow draft choices A.J. Brown and DK Metcalf, but demonstrated uncommon athleticism at the position. It convinced the Bills that Knox will be able to produce if given the opportunity at the NFL level.
With the Knox signing Buffalo’s entire draft class is now under contract.
