NFL Rumors: Buffalo Bills Looking At Receiving Option Josh Gordon
The Buffalo Bills could be close to adding another receiving option to their offense, as it is being reported that they will be one of the teams attending a Pro Day for former University of Baylor wide receiver Josh Gordon this Tuesday in Houston.
Gordon is one of the players who has entered his name into the NFL‘s supplemental draft.
Gordon was dismissed from the Baylor football team just before this past season, when he then transferred to Utah. Despite the transfer, Gordon never played for the Utes and is now entering the supplemental draft due to reported financial reasons.
The 6-foot-3, 225 lb receiver last played for Baylor in 2010 and came through for the Bears as a sophomore with 42 receptions for 714 yards and seven touchdowns.
Getting this potential speedy playmaker (he is expected to run in the 4.4 range for the 40 yard dash) could be a huge move for the Bills offense. It is no secret that Buffalo is looking for a second receiver, and Gordon could fit that role.
Not only will Gordon be a possible second receiver with speed, he also has good size. While he is not a huge receiver like the a Calvin Johnson type, he does have good size for the position and should have ability to make plays.
The current receivers on the Bills roster going after that second receiver slot includes a list of young guys, who unfortunately have yet to totally prove themselves in the league in Donald Jones, Marcus Easley and rookie third-round pick T.J. Graham.
