GM Brandon Beane said of Knox: “I thought Dawson really did a great job" while also mentioning recent addition Jacob Hollister and even Tommy Sweeney in the same quote. It was far from a ringing endorsement and the team was fully expected to bring in other competition during the off-season, most notably Zach Ertz who remains with the Eagles. The addition of Hollister adds legitimate competition though neither he nor Knox appear to be inspiring options. A training camp trade should not be considered off the table. Knox has put in the work the work this off-season but it remains to be seen if he can leverage that to greater things on the field in 2021. He remains a sparsely ranked TE37 on DLF's tight end rankings.
