Isaiah Hodgins

There has been plenty written about Isaiah Hodgins to this point of the offseason. He was a bit of an afterthought before offseason workouts but has impressed key members of the franchise, like Sean McDermott and Josh Allen.

Whether or not Hodgins makes the roster could come down to how many wide receivers they want to keep on the 53-man roster. In the past, the Bills have kept six, with one of those being Andre Roberts who was primarily a returner for kickoffs and punts. The fact the Bills had one player responsible for both helped in terms of roster flexibility.

If the team has to split those roles, it could take away a spot for someone like Isaiah Hodgins. At this point, he seems like a player who likely has a better chance of making the roster than being cut.
