What’s the Status of the Bills Receiving Core as Free Agency Closes In?

NFL.com has a new article out discussing how things look to be shaping up with free agency ready to start very soon, and how teams wide receiver cores are looking going into the process.

In 2019 the Bills were led by John Brown at the wide out spot, but could use a big name weapon for Josh Allen in 2020.

You can read the entire article HERE – for now here’s what the piece says about the Bills receiver situation.

Top three WRs in 2019: John Brown (72-1,060-6), Cole Beasley (67-778-6), Isaiah McKenzie (27-254-1 — restricted free agent).

One of the lesser-hyped but very efficient 2019 acquisitions was the Bills’ signing last offseason of Brown, who had a career-high 72 receptions and 1,060 receiving yards in 2019. Overall, Buffalo averaged 4.9 attempts of 20-plus air yards per game last season (tied for seventh-most) and 9.3 air yards per attempt (tied for fourth-most) — while also posting the second-lowest completion percentage (58.4). This suggests there’s an opportunity for the team’s decision-makers to layer in more high-probability passing plays (shorter plays, or on downs where the defense has to account for the pass and the run) and either add a free agent or draft a wide receiver to help convert them.
