When the Buffalo Bills drafted Dalton Kincaid in the first round, many thought their Tight End room was all set.
Quintin Morris begs to differ.
The third-year tight end has impressed many in the preseason and could be utilized with Kincaid and starter Dawson Knox.
Morris caught a 29-yard touchdown pass in the Bills preseason loss to the Bears on Saturday and has been putting in the work in training camp that earned him a spot on the 53-man roster. “Everybody wants to be a starter, but I’m [just] looking forward to fulfilling whatever role it is the team has for me,” Morris said. “If that’s strictly special teams, I’m here for it.”
Last season, Morris caught 8 passes for 84 yards and a touchdown in the regular season. He also had 2 receptions in the postseason for Buffalo.
This season, Morris could be on the field or in two or three tight end packages.
Rookie Kincaid has wowed both Bills fans and coaches alike with amazing catches in training camp.
He also had three catches for 45 yards in their preseason loss vs the Steelers.
The more weapons the better for All-Pro quarterback Josh Allen this off season.
If Allen has the options at tight end, checking down as opposing to airing it out may change his often at times aggressive play style which hurt Allen and the Bills later in 2022.
For Morris, he’s ready to do what he can for the team and help anyway he can.
“I’m really just doing the dirty work that some guys aren’t willing to do,” he said.
