Excluding Knox is there any of the 4 remaining that pose a threat to opposing defenses? I'm all in on the McBeane regime and I know it's early but the way they address the needs of receivers on the team is head scratching. We're good in defense guys! Let's get Josh weapons! Instead we're signing the owners boyfriend-in-law? C'mon Man!

I agree but they also need 90 camp bodies.  That's why they brought Croom back.

There is a timeline of when certain things can be done in the league year, and this signing simply follows that timeline. Free agency hasn’t even started yet. The GM has to cover all his bases. Don’t confuse actions taken just because they can be done now with actual priorities and their place in that hierarchy.

I'll be damned if I still didnt want at least one better option. Not a fan of Kroft or Smith being on the roster. Know its very likely they are both back, but the way they sniffed around Olsen, makes me wonder if they sniff around Walker.

Out of the five..Smith is by far our best blocker.

I really felt Olsen was a favor for a friend thing.

Probably the only one.
 

But i would hardly think they are All Set at TE in their minds.

Maybe L. Smith is a casualty after all.

Why ? Croom cannot block

I guess I’m the only one who sees Croom as an intriguing talent.  Obviously needs to stay healthy, but it looked to me like he was developing in 2018

Nope , i have had some hope.

 He was improving a bit as a Pas Catcher. They were lining him up outside and running WR routes imo.

But losing him for a season seemed it should be the end of his run with the Bills.

Very little hope for him to make the roster. But i do have some he had his head in the playbook and studying film with Allen maybe even

Its true. and he sets the tone for nasty. LBs and safeties likely know where he is if they are coming downhill.
so much vitriol for Smith. Yes , all those unforgivable penalties are very hard to tolerate, and that is reason enough to move on from him.

 But he certainly does block with attitude.

 Opposite of Croom really.
who is the next best run blocker at TE ? Probably Knox ?

With 5 TEs in camp already and on the lookout for more I could easily see it.

He is by far the most likely to draw a flag on a critical 3rd down conversion.

the way they have Kroft structured and Croom now? they could easily let one or both go. Not sure about Smiths contract. But thought they paid him well initially ?

Not if he is commits a penalty every time he's out there.

You know that (a) it’s the offseason and (b) the Bills are a decent team when people are “up in arms” over a 1-yr cheap-as-stojan signing of a depth TE.

I'm intrigued by his physical toolbox.  What I've seen with my eyeballs, not from the stat sheet.  I think he has the ABILITY to challenge the seam with his athleticism and also split out wide.  We'll see if he can put it together, he's far from a lock to make the team.

 

Wow, you must have a very keen eye or access to All-22, because he has 387 career snaps, and 35 targets in his career.

Yes, very keen...

 

And I'm sure you can understand that we've been able to observe him in training camp and preseason, along with his 387 snaps.

Oh yeah?

 

"Croom went undrafted in the 2017 NFL Draft. On May 5, 2017, he was signed by the Buffalo Bills. On August 20, he was cut. One day later, he was placed on injured reserve with an undisclosed injury, but was removed four days later and was cut once more. On November 1, he was added to the practice squad. On January 8, 2018, he was signed back to the team"

 

 

so...no.

I have no idea what this means.  We saw a good amount of Croom in the lead up to, and into, the 2018 season.

 

My point was simply that I see potential in Croom's skill set.  But carry on.
