The Buffalo Bills continue to keep busy before the start of NFL Free Agency as the team has reportedly brought tight end Jason Croom back into the fold for another season, according to ESPN's Field Yates.

The Bills have re-signed TE Jason Croom to a one-year deal. He spent 2019 on IR after leading Bills’ TE in catches and yards in 2018. A potential depth option in Buffalo.

Croom comes back to a crowded tight end room, as Tyler Kroft took a pay cut and the Bills drafted Dawson Knox and Tommy Sweeney last year in the 2019 NFL Draft. Veteran Lee Smith is also under contract for 2020 as well. Croom was expected to compete with those players in 2019, but wound up on injured reserve after suffering an injury in the preseason.

Croom, 26, led Buffalo's tight ends in receiving in 2018, where he played 15 games, starting in three, while bringing in 22 receptions for 259 yards and a touchdown.
