The Buffalo Bills desperately need help at the wide receiver position and could be gearing up to sign a player recently cut by the New York Jets.

The NFL trade deadline is coming up Tuesday afternoon and the Buffalo Bills are reportedly looking to make a move before then for a player currently without a team.

And at a position where the need for improvement is glaring.

That is certainly some interesting news.

Terrelle Pryor appeared in six games for the New York Jets this season before being cut due to injury. There was some initial word that the Jets were interested in bringing him back but if that was the case he likely wouldn’t be taking meetings with other teams.

Pryor made the transition to wide receiver back in 2015 with the Cleveland Browns before stints with the Washington Redskins and then the Jets. He did have two touchdowns this year before being cut, and would instantly show up as at least the No. 2 receiver. That is, if Kelvin Benjamin remains the No. 1 simply out of principle.

This news also makes me think that Benjamin may be on the move before tomorrow’s deadline. He is the only receiver on the roster with any potential trade value and Pryor could come in and take his spot without much disruption for the Bills on offense. Pryor wouldn’t be a No. 1 receiver to build around but he would assume the role this year given the lack of talent at the position.

We will stay tuned to this situation and it may come up on tonight’s broadcast if the Bills receivers are struggling to get anything going on offense with Derek Anderson.

Next. 5 potential trade targets as the deadline approaches. dark

If that is indeed the case, some roster changes may be on the way tomorrow afternoon.
