Buffalo Bills Tender Offers To Three Players


The Buffalo Bills have tendered offers to three exclusive rights free agents. Wide receiver Justin Brown, DT Corbin Bryant and WR Chris Hogan.

"An Exclusive-Rights Free Agent is an NFL player who is not under contract, but has only two years of NFL experience. If his former club makes him an offer at the three year veteran minimum salary, then that’s it, he has to take it or leave the NFL. These guys have no right to negotiate with other teams. They are “free” only in the sense that they’re free to quit.– Football101.com"

Justin Brown was a free agent that was claimed off of waivers in the beginning of February.  For the past two seasons, 2013 + 2014, Brown appeared in 8 games for the Pittsburgh Steelers recording 12 catches and 94 yards.  Brown was drafted in the 2013 6th round by the Steelers.

"“I just try to be physical and use my size to my advantage and help any way I can whether it’s the pass game or blocking in the run game,” said Brown on the John Murphy Show last month.– BuffaloBills.com"

Corbin Bryant was one of the players that was part of arguably the best defensive line in the league last year.  As a rotational player and spelling Marcell Dareus and Kyle Williams for breathers throughout the year, Bryant was able to record 14 tackles, 1.5 sacks and had a batted pass as well.

"“Our starters on the defensive line have the utmost trust in us to go in there and get the job done,” said Bryant in a recent appearance on the John Murphy Show. “That means a lot to me to have a Pro Bowl guy come out of the game and we go out there and they don’t expect a drop off. I’m definitely ready to contribute even more this year.”– BuffaloBills.com"

Chris Hogan was a standout receiver for the Buffalo Bills last year, winning the slot receiver position and essentially pushing Mike Williams out of a top wide receiver spot on this team last year.  While Hogan won the slot, he also was able to bring in career records in receptions, yards and touchdowns as well.  The most promising player in this group was able to nab 41 catches for 427 yards and found the end-zone 4 times last year.  He is positioned to be the slot receiver again this year, barring any major disaster.

"“Personally I finally got a chance to step into this offense and play a bigger role than I have in the past,” said Hogan. “This year I wanted to establish myself. I wanted to play receiver and I wanted to be on the field and help this team on offense. Next year I’ve got to set my standards higher.”– BuffaloBills.com"
