Perhaps still concerned about Zach Miller’s health, the Bears signed Dion Sims in free agency and drafted Adam Shaheen in the second round. They also retained Daniel Brown and Ben Braunecker.
Shaheen simply is a monster. Listed at 6-6, 277 pounds and drawing inevitable, premature Rob Gronkowski comparisons, the rookie’s usage is yet to be determined. But it’s fair to assume he’ll have an impact on the offense, both as an in-line blocker and as a tough cover in the passing game, regardless of Miller’s availability.

Such depth at tight end is convenient for a team that lacks elite talent at offensive tackle. Don’t be surprised to see more three tight end sets in Loggains’ offense.
Dennison loves him some fullbacks, which helps explain the Bills’ free-agency acquisitions of Patrick DiMarco and Mike Tolbert. But the OC also has a history of using zone blocking schemes, which makes Buffalo’s decision to let efficient runner Mike Gillislee leave for New England somewhat of a head-scratcher.
