Buffalo Bills: 5 players who should be on the trade block heading into season
Robert Foster is another player who likely will have a very tough time to make the Buffalo Bills final roster this year. The Bills saw major upgrades at the position with the addition of Stefon Diggs, as well as drafting Gabriel Davis and Isaiah Hodgins. Realistically there is only one, maybe two spots, up for grabs and with players like Isaiah McKenzie and Andre Roberts on the roster, Robert Foster is on the outside looking in.
However, this doesn’t mean that he doesn’t have value and NFL teams could be willing to take a flyer on the former University of Alabama wide receiver. At only 27 years of age, and on a one-year deal worth $750,000, there isn’t much commitment a team would be making by trading for him and likely wouldn’t save much if they signed him as a free agent.
It wasn’t too long ago when Foster was putting up impressive numbers over the second half of the 2018 season. That year he had 27 receptions, 511 receiving yards and three touchdowns over the final seven games. He provides a unique combination of size and speed that could fit in the right offense.
If the Bills were able to get a fifth, or sixth, round pick they should consider that a win for a player unlikely to make the final roster.
