Buffalo Bills Re-Sign Veteran Wide Receiver
The Buffalo Bills continue to make some off-season moves re-signing a veteran wide receiver and jack of all trades.
The Bills announced today that they have re-signed wide receiver Isaiah McKenzie to a new deal. Of course, if you watched the Bills last season you know that McKenzie did more than just catch the ball.
He accounted for 7 total touchdowns including five receiving, one passing, and one punt return in the regular season. In the postseason he also caught one touchdown.
Check out this pass he threw to Bills QB Josh Allen against the Arizona Cardinals last season.
McKenzie was originally drafted in the 5th round of the 2017 NFL draft by the Denver Broncos and was later claimed off waivers by the Buffalo Bills in 2018. For his career, McKenzie has 78 total catches for 744 yards and six touchdowns. He will be expected to fill in the return role that was held by Andre Roberts last year. Roberts left Buffalo and signed with Houston. McKenzie will join a Buffalo Bills wide receiving group that includes Stefon Diggs, Cole Beasley, Gaberial Davis, Duke Williams, Emmanual Sanders, Jake Kumerow, Isaiah Hodgins, and Tanner Gentry. McKenzie expressed his excitement about the deal with a post on his Twitter page.
Terms about the contract were not released.
The Bills are expected to carry 5 or 6 wide receivers on the roster at the start of next season.
