Buffalo Bills sign WR Greg Little

The Bills signed Greg Little and made the Jarrett Boykin signing official on Tuesday.

The Buffalo Bills added wide receiver Greg Little to their roster on Tuesday. Little was most recently with the Cincinnati Bengals. 

The wide receiver adds size (6'2", 220 lbs.) to Buffalo's roster. Little began his career as a second round pick, 59th overall, of the Cleveland Browns in 2011. As a rookie, Little played in 16 games, starting 12, and caught 61 passes for 709 yards and two touchdowns. He finished the season second among all rookies in receptions.

His sophomore season with the Browns saw Little start all 16 games. His stats dropped slightly in his second season. Little finished the 2012 season with 53 receptions, 647 yards and four touchdowns. These were the best two seasons in his career.

Little spent one more season with Cleveland in 2013 catching 41 passes for 465 yards and two touchdowns. He was released in May of 2014 and spent time in 2014 and 2015 with the Bengals. In 2014, Little caught six passes for 69 yards. He did not play or record any stats in 2015.

The wide receiver has shown flashes of talent, but his biggest issue is holding onto the football. As a rookie, Little had 14 drops with the Browns. He finished his tenure with the Browns with 23 drops. 

Little will have the opportunity to compete for a roster spot with the Bills in 2016. Along with Little's signing, the Bills also signed WR Jarrett Boykin. Boykin's agent said last week that the Bills planned on signing the former Virginia Tech Hokie.

It seems as though the Bills are looking to add a certain type of receiver to their roster. Little will compete for a roster spot against the likes of Boykin (6'2" and 217 lbs.) and Greg Salas (6'2" and 210 lbs.). All three receivers share a similiar height and weight combination.
