The Buffalo Bills could have some tough decisions to make with the receiving corps this offseason, including one that might be out of their hands.
The Bills have a trio of wide receivers headed to free agency, and general manager Brandon Beane has already made it clear that the team will be limited in its moves due to tightening cap space as Josh Allen’s contract extension begins. One veteran receiver could be making the decision for them, an insider hints.
Veteran Considering Retirement
The Athletic’s Joe Buscaglia surveyed the team’s offseason decisions at wide receiver, including some impending choices like whether to keep Isaiah McKenzie or Jake Kumerow, who are both headed to free agency. When it came to veteran Emmanuel Sanders, Buscaglia wrote that the situation is more complicated.
Sanders was a key contributor during the early part of the season, he noted, but saw his role decline as second-year wide receiver Gabriel Davis came on late in the season and during the playoffs. That leaves the impending free agent with an uncertain future with the team and with his own career, he wrote.
