Nelson Making Case For Roster Spot


On a Bills roster that is yearning for more playmakers, wide receiver David Nelson may have found himself a home.

The undrafted rookie out of the University of Florida has made quite a name for himself this preseason. Despite missing the second preseason game due to injury, Nelson has been able to pull in 7 catches for 81 and 2 touchdowns in the other two games.

“To be honest, I’m willing to bring to the table whatever this team needs. Whether that be a possession receiver, whether that be a slot, outside, whatever it takes to get this team better, whatever it takes to get us to the next level,” Nelson said.

What a change of pace from a certain #81 on last year’s roster. Instead of having a receiver opposite Lee Evans that ‘needs’ the ball, here’s a young player that has the fire to not only to make the squad, but to contribute to the team by any means necessary.

And with a coach like Chan Gailey that has a knack for getting the most out of his talented players, one can be sure to see more of Nelson out on the field if he keeps producing.

The Buffalo Bills and the rest of the NFL must cut down their roster to 53 by September 4th.
