Rookie minicamp tryout leads Buffalo Bills to sign tight end Moral Stephens

New, comments

Following minicamp, tight end Moral Stephens impressed the Buffalo Bills enough to warrant signing

NFL Agent Eloy Vazquez tweeted on Sunday that tight end Moral Stephens has signed with the Buffalo Bills. Stephens was invited to the team’s rookie minicamp this past week and must have made an impression for him to be signed.

The Buffalo Bills have been looking to upgrade the tight-end position all offseason. Following the release of Charles Clay, the Bills signed Tyler Kroft and Jake Fisher. During the 2019 NFL Draft, Buffalo selected two tight ends in Dawson Knox (3rd round) and Tommy Sweeney (7th round). Moral Stephens is the latest addition who will be competing with many news faces at his position group in addition to holdover Jason Croom.

The former Florida Gators tight end spent five years in school, but saw limited time on the field. Only playing in his final three years, Stephens appeared in 23 games as a tight end and 17 more on special teams and reserve tight end. With Florida, Stephens caught 15 passes for 261 yards and three touchdowns. Stephens appeared twice on the SEC Academic Honor Roll.
