7. Tyler Kroft, TE
The Chicago Bears are keeping Jimmy Graham on their roster, but it seems like right now it is only for the reason that they think they can acquire Russell Wilson. He was a number two tight end and was not providing too much value by the end of the season. With a $10 million cap and the potential to save $7 million, he still may be released.
Even if Graham is not released, Matt Nagy has consistently tried to run three tight end sets to no avail. Demetrius Harris did not live up last year and will probably not be back in Chicago. Tyler Kroft does not even have to replace Graham as much as be an upgrade from Harris.
Kroft was a backup tight end for the Buffalo Bills who was typically used as a blocker. That is the type of tight end they need, as Graham does not bring much in that area. Tyler Kroft spent his rookie contract with the Bengals. Yes, that means a connection to Bill Lazor. In fact, he had a career-high with Lazor as OC in 2017.
For a cheap, depth tight-end you could do worse than Tyler Kroft.
