Surprisingly, the Bills haven’t had a ton of superstar receivers over the years. Apart from the top receiver in team history (more on him later), Eric Moulds was probably the only other star pass catcher who spent more than a few seasons in Buffalo.

What he did during his 10 years with the Bills though was masterful.

For Moulds, it was all about consistent productivity. After stepping into a full-time starting role in his third year, the terrific receiver became a dangerous weapon for the Buffalo offense. In a seven-year span, he eclipsed the 1,000-yard mark four times, including an explosive 1998 season that saw him haul in a career-high 1,386 yards on only 67 receptions.

As a result of his playmaking abilities, Moulds found himself included on three Pro Bowl rosters and two Second-Team All-Pro teams. On top of that, he currently sits in second place on the Bills’ all-time lists for receptions, receiving yards and receiving touchdowns.

Moulds may not have been seen as elite during his days in the NFL. Regardless, Buffalo fans know the impact he had for the franchise. Just look at his performance during the 1999 NFL Playoffs, when he hauled in nine passes for a whopping 240 yards (a team playoff record) for further proof.
