When you look back at the Bills receiving corps over the past couple years it’s nothing to be exactly excited about. I mean sure Stevie Johnson is the bright spot but after that it has just been average play at best. On the other hand you could place the blame on the quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick but these players are pros and should be able to compete at a high level. Here are two players that I think could change the way we look at our receivers.
The first player is Mike Wallace from the Steelers. Many reports have been out saying that he will most likely not resign and move on. This would be a great fit for the Bills if that could ever get done. Already in his time in the league he has posted over 4,000 YD’s, 30+ TD’s and a stat that I really like is 27 plays of 40 or more yards. That is something this team has been lacking. Many thought TJ Graham would fill those shoes and maybe still could but as of right now he is not the answer.
Next is another receiver the Bills could look at but this time it’s a more physical type player. Dwayne Bowe from the Chiefs is another player that could be changing teams this offseason for a new start. In his time with Kansas City he has put up pretty good numbers every year with average quarterbacks. He has eclipsed the 5,700 YD mark and is just one TD away from 40. Those are pretty good numbers but I was wondering how much better they could be if they had a better than average QB.
This is just two receivers that could be on the market come free agency. More could emerge and some others could possibly want off their current clubs. Whatever happens I think the Bills must get another wide receiver to work with Stevie. Soon we will see what plans this new organization has to make this offense and team better.
