6 role players on the Buffalo Bills fighting for a contract extension in 2022
Reggie Gilliam was a surprise addition to the 53-man roster in 2020 after he beat out veteran Patrick DiMarco as an undrafted free agent. Over the past two years, Gilliam has played a number of different roles for this team from being a key part of special teams but also as the primary fullback and the third tight end.
In two seasons, Gilliam has five receptions on seven targets for 39 receiving yards and one receiving touchdown while also adding three rush attempts for three yards.
However, most of his impact has been on special teams with 504 special team snaps to only 236 offensive snaps in his career. On special teams, he has five total tackles and one forced fumble.
Reggie Gilliam has shown with his versatility over the past two years how valuable he can be to this team. He is a player that may end up getting a contract extension before this season but if not he is someone the Bills could prioritize next offseason.
