The Bills signed Tyler Kroft to a three-year contract worth up to $21 million. On the surface, this addresses a position of need for the Bills. Kroft, 26, is a pass-catching tight end who could be a weapon for Josh Allen and the Bills offense.
However, the Bills made a mistake before overpaying for a tight end. Kroft's best season was 2017, when he caught 42 passes for 404 yards and a touchdown. He missed most of last season with an injury.
Kroft could surprise. But there's a good reason to believe he won't live up to the terms of the deal. He'll want to make an impact right away to let the team and fans know that this won't be a repeat of the Charles Clay experience.
