Tolbert will serve as pass-blocker for Buffalo


  • According to WKBW Buffalo, new Buffalo Bills running back Mike Tolbert is viewed as a third-down pass-blocker by the Bills coaching staff.
  • Tolbert’s role in Carolina’s offense fluctuated greatly over the years since he joined the league in 2008. In particular, he was used as a pass- or run-blocker for over 50 percent of his snaps both in 2015 and 2016.
  • Although he has graded poorly over the past three years in run-blocking, he was ranked top-three as a pass-blocker for the past two years.
  • In 2016, although he was used as a pass-blocker on only 39 snaps (47th among running backs) he allowed just one pressure, for a pass-blocking efficiency of 98.1.
