Sammy Watkins, Robert Woods, and then who knows? This has been the conversation that many Buffalo Bills fans have had this offseason. In terms of proven entities, the Bills don't have much behind their top two wide receivers.
Sanjay Lal, Buffalo's WRs coach, seems to think otherwise.
He praised the likes of Greg Salas, Leonard Hankerson, Jarrett Boykin, Greg Little on The John Murphy Show on Wednesday, but Gregg Rosenthal of Around the NFL believes that Buffalo's biggest weak spot is at wide receiver. Rosenthal listed the biggest weak spot for every NFL team and said the following about Buffalo's talent at wide receiver.
Buffalo Bills: Tyrod Taylor had a wideout problem before Sammy Watkins' foot surgery. If Watkins can't stay healthy, they could have a crisis. Robert Woods would be stretched as a No. 3 receiver on a lot of teams. He's locked in as a starter here. The local rags are talking up Greg Salas as a strong candidate for the slot receiver job. Leonard Hankerson and Jarrett Boykin are other options. Coach Rex Ryan might never let coordinator Greg Roman call a forward pass.
Woods certainly isn't a No. 1 wide receiver, but Rosenthal's comment about him being stretched as a number three WR on some teams is a bit insulting. That said, Rosenthal's choice of wide receiver as Buffalo's biggest weak spot is fair.null
