Bills and TE Knox Ink New Deal

The Buffalo Bills have reportedly signed tight end Dawson Knox to a four-year contract extension on Wednesday, sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter. The deal is worth a reported $53.6 million and includes $31 million guaranteed, which will tie Knox and the Bills together through 2026. 

The newly inked contract will also places Knox as one of the top five highest paid players within his position, Schefter adds.  

The 25-year-old, who played college at Ole Miss before being drafted by Buffalo in the third round of the 2019 NFL Draft, emerged as a top offensive weapon for the Bills last year. He caught 49 receptions for 587 yards, nine touchdowns (11 total including the postseason), and started 14 out of 15 games in the 2021-22 season. 

Knox was entering the final year of his rookie contract and shortly became one of quarterback Josh Allen's most reliable weapons. 

The Bills are knocking on the door of Super Bowl contention yet again this season and kickoff the NFL year against the defending champions, the Los Angeles Rams on Thursday, September 8th.
