In a continued look at the free agents and draft possibilities, the Bills could use a WR to help out Stevie Johnson. It seems every year there is a major hit at the WR position due to injuries and we are left with looking at the 4th, 5th, and 6th, ranked WR on the depth chart starting late in the season. The question; Does Buffalo look to draft or bring in a WR? We will be looking at the free agent possibilities.
With David Nelson as a restricted Free Agent, Buffalo needs a WR that has size, speed, and can catch the ball deep. They need an Andre Johnson type WR to help out Stevie and five the team more of a vertical threat. There are a lot of big names on the WR Free agent list, but will any fit into the scheme of the Bills?
One name that sticks out that could fit the bill is that of Dwayne Bowe, problem is he will most likely resign with KC. Victor Crus is out there but again he will resign. Brian Hartline is a good possibility. He is 6’2 and weighs 199 lbs. This is the size of a receive the Bills need. He has been under-utilized in Miami only getting 1 TD in this past year but racked up over 1000 yards on 74 catches. He runs a 4.52 40 which is not lightning fast but it will stretch the field.
