Report: Buffalo Bills Working Out Two Wide Receivers This Week
The Buffalo Bills are holding their final OTA of the off-season this week. The last thing on the docket will be mandatory minicamp in mid-June, which will also be at One Bills Drive.
The Bills have one of the best rosters in the NFL on paper. Despite that, there is less optimism for the team's chances in the national media, with many picking the Philadelphia Eagles, Kansas City Chiefs or Cincinnati Bengals to win the Super Bowl in 2024.
The roster the Bills have right now is pretty much all set, although DeAndre Hopkins watch is well underway with the fanbase and the media, as the former Arizona Cardinals wide receiver will likely sign with a new team in the coming weeks.
The Bills are one of the teams that are deemed to be involved in vying for his services, which would be the final piece to a lethal offense and Super Bowl run.
However, the Bills are still looking into other wide receiver options.
According to Ryan Talbot of New York Upstate and Syracuse dot com, the Bills will work out Marcell Ateman and Preston Williams on Thursday. Both are NFL veterans and large targets at 6 ft. 4.
Ateman spent 2023 with the St. Louis Battlehawks of the XFL. He was with the Arizona Cardinals in the 2022 off-season and spent four years before that with the Oakland/Las Vegas Raiders.
Williams is best known for his three-year stint with the Miami Dolphins from 2019-2021. He was with the Carolina Panthers in 2022.
Neither player should be deemed a starter on offense but looking for more size is clearly important to the Bills here.
