Hockenson was the team's first-round draft pick last season and had 32 catches for 367  yards and two touchdowns, before a right ankle injury on Thanksgiving sidelined him for the rest of the season. He was placed on the COVID-19 reserve list at the start of training camp.

Oruwariye and Siposs are expected to compete for the starting roles at their respective positions.
