    I do not know why they signed him. Off, but in McBeane we trust

    Re: Bills Sign WR Tavon Austin

    Gotta be punt/kick returner insurance. It was obvious they weren't comfortable with Mckenzie last season, and early reports on Stevenson dropping passes this spring is probably why he was signed. Still hoping to see Shakir get opportunities there as well.

    Brings speed.

    Good choice for returns.

    But we resigned McKenzie so I'm confused.

    I doubt he makes the team. He's an old 32

    Re: Bills Sign WR Tavon Austin

    His chances to make it probably aren't great, but he's a vet that can bring competition and push the young guys. I'm sure it's a minimum deal with little to no guaranteed money. I'd say that final 6th WR spot is between Kumerow, Stevenson and Austin now. Or maybe they think that they might keep 7 WRs this year based on what Dorsey wants to do.

    No harm in seeing what he's got left ..... is he a longshot ... probably.

    They waived undrafted FA Malik Williams to clear a roster spot for Austin.

    The Bills lost a lot of experience when Sanders and Beasley left. And McDermott has a history of not trusting rookies and makes an effort to protect them until they gain experience and trust.

    They are probably going to keep seven WR’s on the roster for 2022 like they did for 2021.

    These are most likely cast in stone...

    1. Diggs
    2. Davis
    3. Crowder
    4. McKenzie
    5. Shakir

    The other two will come from...

    Stevenson
    Kumerow
    Hodgins
    Gentry

    And now, Austin.

    Gentry and Hodgins are on thin ice.

    Kumerow is valuable on special teams. Stevenson could be a lock if he nails down the return spot.

    Going to be a very interesting training camp for valuable spots on one the most solid and talented rosters in the NFL.

    Austin is there to show Stevenson the job won't be just handed to him.
