The wide receiver position was always going to be one that had the most competition because of the depth the team had. The thought was that the Buffalo Bills would keep six wide receivers but the play of Marquez Stevenson could force them to expand that number by one.
Stevenson was a sixth round pick by the Buffalo Bills this year and has looked great in the preseason. In the first game against the Lions, Stevenson caught a 41-yard pass that set the Bills up for the go-ahead field goal from Tyler Bass.
Then in the second game, Stevenson took a punt 78-yards for a touchdown and showed what he could do as a punt returner. This is a position that seemingly is still up for grabs between the rookie and Isaiah McKenzie.
While Stevenson may end up being the starting returner for the Bills, he is unlikely to see much time at wide receiver with how good this group is. However, after this preseason the Buffalo Bills can’t afford to release him as another NFL team would almost certainly try to add him. If this is the case, then Marquez Stevenson is a player that has to be on the 53-man roster.
