The Buffalo Bills have really focused on the offensive side of the ball, both in free agency and the NFL Draft. In free agency, the Bills signed players like Connor McGovern, Trent Sherfield, Deonte Harty, and Damien Harris.

They would follow it up by using four of their six draft picks on the offense led by tight end Dalton Kincaid. There is no question that the group general manager Brandon Beane has put around Josh Allen is better than what he had last year.

However, one thing that this offense still is missing is a wide receiver who has straight line speed that can challenge defenses deep. It will force them to play their safeties deeper and open up more of the middle of the field for Josh Allen to find players on those underneath routes.

One player that could do that is former first round pick Breshad Perriman, who recently played the past two seasons with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He has never been a high volume reception player, his career high for receptions in a season is 36, but he has a career average of 16.2 yards per reception.

The biggest challenge for the Buffalo Bills would be finding a spot on the 53-man roster for a player like Perriman. They have typically only had six wide receivers and those spots are probably locked in, with fifth round rookie Justin Shorter. However, if the Bills elect to add a seventh wide receiver, Perriman could bring a different element to this offense.
