A 2020 college free agent signee out of USF, Wilcox in '21 looks to expand his role after spending nearly all of his first NFL season on the Bengals' practice squad (did not play) ... Promoted to Cincinnati's active roster prior to season finale, but was inactive ... Touted as a complete TE prospect who can contribute as a pass-catcher, blocker and on special teams ... Three-time all-conference selection at USF who left school with every career and single-season receiving record for tight ends ... Also a regular contributor in run-blocking game at USF, and helped pave way for three 1000-yard rushers (2016-18).

When he got the nod to give the Bengals a three tight-end set for the first time all day against the Vikings, he was in on the biggest play of the game.
