A recent article looked at potential trade options for every NFL team this offseason. The target for the Buffalo Bills would be a major risk.
We here at BuffaLowDown have been discussing ways for the Buffalo Bills to improve the wide receiver position.
The team may be confident about the group on the roster, but fans remain worried as training camp approaches.
A recent article on on NFL Mocks, written by George Stockburger, went through and targeted one player each NFL team could try to acquire in a trade this offseason. Stockburger decided to focus on the receiver position when it came to the Bills. His choice was just a bit surprising.
"Chicago just loaded up at wide receiver. White’s issue was never ability but whether or not he can stay healthy. A late round flier might be worth the risk."
This would certainly be considered a bold move, as White has played in a total of five games since being drafted in 2015. He only played in one game last season.
White was a No. 7 overall draft pick so the intrigue is there. He may even be on the open market after training camp if the Bears decide to cut ties and finally move on, accepting the pick as a bust. But even if it is a bust for the Bears, White could always turn it around with a change of scenery.
His issues haven’t been related to his play on the field, but rather due to bad luck and injuries. Maybe he could come to Buffalo and figure it out.
I agree that it wouldn’t hurt to take a low-risk flier on White, but he shouldn’t be brought in and relied upon for major production. He could go to a team with great depth to try to figure things out, which is not the situation in Buffalo right now.
