As it seems that wide receiver Terrell Owens is determined to find a new job out of the Buffalo Bills and unrestricted free agent Josh Reed will not stay without a demanded contract, the Bills are in need of wide receivers but they will not look for one outside the team on the free agent market.
According to reports, the Bills seem content to allow its in-house options to compete for the job. And general manager Buddy Nix said at the NFL owners’ meetings that the Bills is not going to target any of the current free-agent wide receivers but would like to offer the chance to those lesser-used pass catchers inside the Bills.
Thus the Bills have several choices with James Hardy and Steve Johnson to back up starting receiver Lee Evans. Hardy was a highly touted second-round pick when he put on the Bills jersey two years ago as a rookie, and Johnson is entering his third season with the Bills but finished the last season with just two grabs. Besides, the Bills can also pick a young receiver from the draft that begins next month.
