Recently it has been reported that Kenny Britt has been signed by the St. Louis Rams.  Sources say that it was a choice to go with familiarity for Britt and with Jeff Fisher being the Rams Head Coach, Head Coach of the Titans when Britt was draft in 2009, they both know how to work with each other.

“Now head coach of Rams, Fisher knows how to handle quirky personalities like Britt, who has had his share of run-ins with the law.”

With Britt off the board, who I think was one of the best choices for the Bills to bring in a big receiver that can stretch the field as well as being at a low cost, who can the Bills look to next on the free agent front.

DeSean Jackson may not make it past his first visit, to the Redskins, as they are close to a deal and sources close to Jackson have stated “deals done”.

“McManus cites sources relaying that discussions between the two sides are going “very well” and a source close to Jackson that said it’s a “done deal” with the Redskins.”

- Curtis Crabtree, profootballtalk.com

Jackson is also looking to get a deal in the 9-10 million dollar range a year.  He was scheduled to get 10.5 from the Eagles this year.  If the Buffalo Bills would not give 9 million a year to Jairus Byrd, what makes you think that Jackson will get that from the Bills?  Not likely to happen.

So who is still out their that could fit the bill for the Bills? The only real person that I see that the Bills may be able to get away with, on a lower cost contract and a short term deal would be possibly Miles Austin.  Austin is coming off of a low number year and it could work in favor of the Bills.  If the Bills don’t do anything on the WR front through free agency I still thin that they will be looking at Mike Evans at the #9 spot and they will pass on Eric Ebron with Scott Chandler being signed.
