The Buffalo Bills have plenty of playing time up for grabs at tight end this summer, and one of the more-discussed players in that competition, MarQueis Gray, has very nice things to say about the offense being installed by new Bills coordinator Greg Roman.

"This offense right here is tight end heaven," Gray told Ty Dunne of The Buffalo News. "We move around so much that we really play receiver, slot, we play everything but running back. You could line up at any of those spots – that's the best part about this offense."

Gray spent the final portion of the 2014 season with the Bills, eventually becoming the team's third tight end behind two players who have since moved on to new teams, Scott Chandler and Lee Smith. The Bills spent a large quantity of money on new starting tight end Charles Clay in free agency, and Gray will be competing with rookies Nick O'Leary and Clay Burton, as well as veterans Chris Gragg and Matthew Mulligan, for playing time and roles behind the starter.

In Dunne's profile, which you should definitely read, Gray admits that 2015 could be his breakout year.

"Especially with this offense and the opportunities coming my way – I’m going to take full advantage of it," Gray said. "I want to be that guy where defensive coordinators say ‘Watch out for 48.’ I want to put fear in the defense."
