Knox should push Croom off the roster. 

No, Croom can catch.

The late Carrie Fisher’s nephew?  Someone said it’s a prerequisite for the Bills to sign a TE.

So the force is with us?

That or TE Luke Stocker is our only hope.

I'm good with this. I wanted the team to sign a cheap guy like Eric Tomlinson, who is a 6-6, 265 lbs tight end who re-signed with the Jets after they non tendered him. Fisher is a much better athlete, bigger, and has bigger upside for sure. Daboll did some fun stuff last year with unbalanced formations, so having a guy like this can add to the variety. Let's see what happens. I still think they should look into Maxx Williams and roll with 4 tight ends like the Ravens. 

 

I also do do not think this keeps them from drafting a guy high. Both Fisher and Croom are longshot projects who are on the opposite sides of styles. 

Nobody I repeat Nobody is pushing Croom  off the roster. Dya not know who his GF is?

Just listened to Bill Polian talk about Jake Fisher on Sirius replay this morning (from last night).  He talked about the Bills plan to run the ball and not be a spread team that tries to throw all the time.  He said the Bills have not had a TE that could set the edge and help in the run game, but they do now.  He was pretty high on Fisher being a part of the offense this year.

 

Along with Jake adding to the run game, he said Cody Ford will be a road grader and Devin Singletary is explosive.  

 

I'm all about running the ball to crush their will, then pop em with play action when they start to cheat up.

 

Josh Allen will play much better with a dominant running game and a shut down defense around him.

I like this signing. We are going to run the crap out of the ball next year. Run, Run, Run, Play Action Bomb.

 

Whatever keeps our punter off the field.....

Bills' Jake Fisher: Shedding weight rapidly

Rotowire  2H AGO

Fisher said he is down to 268 pounds and is aiming for the low 260s as he transitions to tight end, Mark Gaughan of The Buffalo News reports.

 

With Fisher making the switch from tackle to tight end, a position he said he is much more passionate about playing, he has had to go from over 300 pounds to 260. He has made remarkable progress the last few months and appears to be close to his goal weight a couple months out of training camp.

Fisher was a star tight end and defensive lineman in high school. He also caught one more td in college than Dawson Knox.☺ Will be interesting to see how he moves at 260 lbs. In college at 300 he was an excellent blocker on the move in space and looked very smooth and athletic for his size. There will be a battle in camp for the last te spot.

I'd rather keep Fisher than DiMarco.

...helluva commitment.....look how 'Bamas' Quinnen Williams made the commitment to bulk up for positional change and how well it worked for him in college (NFL?...stay tuned)......interesting that Jason Peters did the exact opposite, TE to LT......
