This deal makes Kroft the 15th-highest paid TE in the NFL. Pencil him in as your starter next season, folks. We'll see if he can put up a similar year like he did in '17, catching 42 for 404 and seven touchdowns (that scoring mark would have tied for #Bills team high in '18).

That’s a lot of money...hoping they aren’t shying away from spending like that on the OL.

Very similar to the Kevin Johnson signing.

He's a young guy who has shown flashes, but has been derailed by injuries.

 

I like these moves as value signings.  But $6 million+ per year seems a little high.

 

Bills are going to need to over pay a bit as we know, especially for pass catchers

And OBD will likely draft another 3 phase (Run block, pass block, catch) TE in the draft.

Good thing we are signing durable guys like Trent Murphy and Kroft!

overpaying again for some chump TE.  We lose out on Paradis, Humphries, AB, James, etc.  I was hoping to fill in holes with $80 million.  Well we got a backup TE, 1st round bust, and old RB to play down 3rd back.  WTF?  Same old Bills

They are paying him a lot of money for one season of production. I hope he is that player and not the player on I

I'm not a big fan of paying considerable money to a player who has only had 1 decent year. A year followed by a bad year at that.

I mean we can all say "hey, at least we did something", but like other moves we've made in the past, we're paying good money for players who havent necessarily 'proved it' in the NFL.

Hopefully we're still looking to improve the TE position because even with this signing, we're still in the same spot as we were before imo. Yeah we have another body but cmon, can't we do better?

Glad this is what Beane was working on the first day of FA.

Fans always want big splash signings.  But those rarely make teams successful.

 

Spread the dollars around and build depth.  I have complete faith in Beane.

Big risk...he only missed two games in his first 3 years, but last year only played in 5 games.  If he is healthy, he should be a solid starter.  If the injury woes continue, that will be a big chuck of cap space in the trainers room.

We have not lost out on Paradis. The rumors of him agreeing with NYJ are premature. Not saying it can't happen, but it has not yet

I think he’s the starter. Rookie TEs rarely come right in and start.

 

 

Yeah they can,  Engram, Howard and Njoku all started fine--from the same draft.  Hunter Henry, George Kittle,  Hooper before that.  Sefarian-Jenkins, Ebron. Eifert, Ertz, Reed, Kelce (IR rookie year but huge impact his next year) all same draft.

Lol @ everyone saying he's not that good and being overpaid. Have you guys not learned yet that beane is very very good and finding underrated guys? That's not to say EVERY guy he signs is great, but we have many examples of guys who we thought would do nothing and have proven the opposite
