I know we are in the hunt for some WR's, but I'd like to see what we have before we draft or sign another FA. For example, Kolby Listenbee and Dezmin Lewis stand out to me. Those two were awesome in college. Watch their highlights. Still trying to figure out why we didn't give them some reps last year instead of signing Percy Harvin.

You won't, because they don't play until the draft and FA are over.

Dez Lewis should make sure he has a passport so he can make a smooth transition to the CFL. Listenbee is a wildcard, hopefully at minimum he can get off the LOS and run a go.

Lewis has size and not much else. I imagine he'll impress in mini camp and then disappear once the pads come on

One has the size, the other elite speed. Would be nice but don't think either crack the top 4.

Listenbee might have something seriously wrong with him.

 

He had a sports hernia surgery in March and was unavailable for the entire season?

 

Did they cut him open with a rusty box cutter?

I'm fairly certain it was a double sports hernia operation whatever that means.

I think listenbee missed all of camp with the rehab and ended up on the PUP, then from PUP to IR... Can't play a rookie who didn't practice

 

Needed the roster spot at that point.

Also had surgery on his hip which was an older injury. Still ran a 4.39 in the 40. Also did 15 reps on the bench press. Not bad for a guy with a long frame at 6' and 197 lbs.

I think neither make the 2017 team 

Or if one does a number of the players we just signed will be cut, like Tate, Butler, Washington, maybe Powell   

Do the math

We usually only carry 6, maybe 7 WR's

Sammy, draft pick, Holmes, Philly are likely assured

The other 6 are battling for 2-3 spots

And if we draft 2 WR's

It'll be everyone else battling for 1-2 spots minus who is eligible for the practice squad

I'm struggling to understand this. Correct me if i'm wrong but dont teams have like 10-12 WRs at the start of camp? We have what, 9,right now counting those guys?

The Bills only have 73 guys signed. They will be adding about 20 more before camp.

Double hernia means twice as much of the hernia.

I'd forget about Dez Lewis asap.

7th round project that won't pay off.

I have high expectations for Listenbee which is why we can pass on WR in the first and take a QB.
Let's Go Buffalo!!!!!
