Buffalo Bills will sign a wide receiver, but not Amari Cooper
The wide receiver position in the NFL Draft is incredibly deep, and they will likely draft one, however for an immediate impact to this offense, the Bills will need to sign a free agent wide receiver.
Recently, we identified the best ways to address every need the Bills had this offseason and rookie wide receivers struggle to make an impact their first year. There have been seven wide receivers drafted in the first round of the past three years and none broke 1,000 receiving yards their first year.
This is why the team will likely look at free agency to bolster the wide receiver position and while they could use that top target, it likely will not be Amari Cooper. While he would be good for this offense and Josh Allen, the contract he will likely command it is out of the price range for the Bills.
Instead, expect this front office to try to find a diamond in the rough, similar to what they did with John Brown last year. There are a number of wide receivers in that second tier, like DeMarcus Robinson, Breshard Perriman or even Devin Funchess, that make sense to address the need at the position.
