After getting their first win of the season, should the Buffalo Bills look to add a veteran wide receiver?
In Week 2, the Buffalo Bills were able to bounce back in a big way after a brutal loss to the New York Jets. The loss to the Jets certainly looked like it left a bad taste in the mouth of Bills quarterback, Josh Allen, who played much better against the Raiders.
The Bills were able to handle the Raiders rather easily, as they totaled 38 points in the win, and they felt rather in command pretty early on in the game. For the Bills, the offense certainly took a bulk of the blame for the loss to the Jets, as Allen once again struggled against the Jets’ defense.
Recently, Bleacher Report listed team needs for all 32 franchises in the NFL. For the Bills, one area they mentioned that the team needed to address was the wide receiver position. Furthermore, the player they mentioned who is someone they should target was T.Y Hilton.
Hilton made a name for himself with the Indianapolis Colts a few years back, as he totaled over 1,000 receiving yards for them five times in his career. While Hilton isn’t a 1,000-yard receiver anymore, he could provide a good veteran option for the Bills at the wide receiver position.
Currently, the Bills’ offense feels dependent on what Allen and Stefon Diggs can do together. Without a doubt, Diggs is one of the best receivers in the league and should rightfully be targeted a lot by Allen. However, this can make the Bills predictable, and sometimes Allen tries to force it to Diggs which leads to mistakes.
Last season, Hilton only played a few games of the Dallas Cowboys. In three regular season games, Hilton totaled seven receptions and 120 receiving yards. Even though Hilton might not be the receiver he once was, he can be a good slot option for the Bills and at the very least provide them some depth.
As the Bills look to once again be a Super Bowl contender we will have to see how they look to upgrade their team.
