Bills bring Haddad back to Buffalo

The Buffalo Bills have brought back former wide receiver and return man Drew Haddad. Originally drafted by the Bills in the seventh round of the 2000 draft, Haddad returns after stints in Indianapolis and NFL Europe.

Drew Haddad was a stand-out player for the University at Buffalo in the late 1990s. career When he graduated he was the school's all-time leading receiver and held 12 different recording including career receptions, receiving yards and all-purpose yards. As a result he was selected by the Bills in the 7th Round (233rd overall) of the 2000 NFL draft. He spent most of that first 2000 season on the team's practice squad.

The Bills cut him late in the season and he was soon the picked up by the Indianapolis Colts. He spent parts of three seasons on and off the Colts' practice squad and in/active lineup. Though to date he has only one NFL career reception.

His return to Buffalo comes after a summer spent with the NFL Europe Franfurt Galaxy. Haddad topped the Galaxy in catches and receiving yards with 28 receptions for 455 yards and 1 TD. The best chance Haddad will have making the roster is as a depth WR and return man, particular in the punt return game where he has done well in the past. Including two punts for over 80 yards for TDs during the 2001 pre-season with the Colts. He also excelled with the Galaxy in this role with the Galaxy as he led the team with his 7.8 yards per punt return.
