With a new coaching staff in place, there's an opportunity for young players on the Buffalo Bills roster to make an impact. Second-year tight end Shawn Nelson is one of those players, and he caught four passes during Sunday practice. According to the team's website, Nelson has been a frequent target during 7-on-7 and 11-on-11 work.
"Everything is going pretty well," Nelson said. "I think I’ve gotten better at blocking and I’ve gotten stronger. I always feel like I’m a threat in the passing game. With the offense that we’ve got going in, coach Gailey is putting some real good plays in for us, not just for myself, but as a team. I just think we’ve developed a whole lot from where we were last year as a team."
It's been a long time since a tight end made a fantasy impact in Buffalo, but the Bills currently have no proven receivers other than Lee Evans and Nelson could be a valuable weapon if he continues to develop. He's worth keeping an eye on, but will open the season on the waiver wire in most leagues.
