The Buffalo Bills have a competition brewing at wide receiver. We cover that and more in today’s edition of The Morning Charge.

The Buffalo Bills don’t have a starting quarterback as of right now. And when it comes to the wide receiver position, questions remain as well.

Kelvin Benjamin and Zay Jones will likely open the season as the starting receivers, but it is a wide open competition behind them. And Jones still has to earn his way back into the lineup once he is healthy, so he could even be passed up on the depth chart. However, he should get another look as a starter given he was a second-round pick a year ago.

An undrafted free agent like Robert Foster could earn himself some significant playing time. Or perhaps a veteran like Andre Holmes will cement himself as a fixture on offense.

Having a major competition at such an important position on offense doesn’t exactly inspire a lot of confidence in fans, but if the front office believes in the players currently on the roster then that means the competition is just to find the top talent.

There is nothing wrong with having a surplus of talent on the training camp roster. It is much better than having people earn spots by default due to a lack of any competition.

The wide receiver position is something we have focused on all offseason, so we take a look at that and more in today’s edition of The Morning Charge.

Bills fans may riot if White is snubbed from the Pro Bowl once again. He still has to prove that last year wasn’t a fluke, but it is hard to imagine him regressing when he is realistically only still approaching his prime.
