With Dustin Keller and long snapper James Dearth being the only tight ends on the roster (and Dearth in title only), someone will surely be brought in as depth. Former Bills tight end Robert Royal is visiting, much to the dismay of Brian Bassett.
But in reality, Royal would be a decent second tight end. He spent time starting in Buffalo last year, and he got exposed with a lot of playing time. But as a backup tight end, he would be a quality blocker, even if he gets flagged for holding a little too often. He also has average hands and athleticism. In terms of talent, think somewhere between Chris Baker and Bubba Franks.
Lisa Zimmerman has the scoop.
