Buffalo Bills: 5 trade targets at wide receiver this offseason
The Buffalo Bills will likely be looking for a top wide receiver this offseason for this offense. If they are not able to find one through free agency or the NFL Draft, these players could be available through a trade.
The Buffalo Bills made improvements at the wide receiver position last offseason with the additions of John Brown and Cole Beasley. However, if this offense hopes to move out of the bottom half of the league in passing, they will need to add another wide receiver that can be Josh Allen’s go-to target in key situations in the game.
There are certainly some options in free agency and also through the NFL Draft but if the Bills don’t want to spend the cap space or are not confident there is a true number one wide receiver in the NFL Draft, they may look to acquire one through a trade.
The Bills tried to go this route last year by working out a deal for Antonio Brown, but thankful that trade never came to fruition.
The downside of trying to acquire a wide receiver through a trade is that it will likely cost the Bills substantial draft capital on top of what is likely a large salary for these players. However, there is no question that this team is on the cusp of being a top team in the AFC thanks to their defense. If there was ever an opportunity to really make a statement, this might be the season.
These are five wide receivers that the Buffalo Bills should call about seeing if there is an opportunity to work out a deal this offseason.
