Brandon Reilly, 2nd Year

(6-foot-2, 200 pounds)

Contract: 2 year – $1.2 Million (Not guaranteed)

Career Notes:

Signed as an undrafted free agent in 2017 out of Nebraska.

Was on the Bills Practice Squad for majority of 2017 season.

Called up to active roster at the end of 2017 season.


Reilly is a trust the process kind of guy. He is a hardworking player that grinded his way from undrafted free agent to active player. He showed that he was not afraid to mix it up on special teams and was brought on late as a run blocking receiver.

Reilly is in year two of a dirt-cheap contract and I expect him to fight hard again throughout camp. Not many players will outwork Reilly and he’ll need to outshine both draft picks to make the roster.

He has NFL size and has shown a decent ability to make contested catches. I know that the staff loves his demeanor and will be rooting for him to make plays throughout camp.

Depending on how many receivers the Bills want to keep on the active roster, look for Reilly to be a fringe guy that holds his breath to all through the last round of cuts.
