The greatest Buffalo Bills players to don 31-50
The greatest Buffalo Bills player to wear #40:
In 1971, the Buffalo Bills used the 4th overall pick of J.D. Hill. A 6’1″, a 202-pound wide receiver would take his time getting warmed up in the NFL. His rookie year went as expected, but there definitely was no “sophomore slump” in his second year. In 1972, Hill earned his only Pro Bowl selection with 754 yards and 5 touchdowns. Hill’s Buffalo career totals would be 2,631 yards 20 touchdowns.
Hill had been away from the NFL spotlight for quite some time until 2014 when Hill and several other players sued the NFL. They claimed they were illegally given narcotics to hide the pain that the game brought upon their bodies.
Other 40 notable players who also donned the same jersey include Chip Nuzzo, (what a great name!) and Robb Riddick (brother of ESPN analyst and former NFL CB Louis Riddick). Our runner-up was Terry Miller (1500 rush yards, 8 TD’s).
