#Bills need to look at a veteran wide receiver now that they cleared some space

How many more years does Anquan Boldin have left in the tank?

Bills need to sign Anquan Boldin in my opinion.

The Buffalo Bills are hurting at the wide receiver position, and they truly need to be examining what options are out there. Right now they have some good players on their roster, but many of their wide outs are long shots. 

The team needs a veteran wide recevier and I would not be surprised to see them bring in a couple for a workout and eventually sign one to a one year deal.  The Bills had Percy Harvin, to go along with Sammy Watkins and Robert Woods.  That was a good little squad especially considering they had Chris Hogan. The Bills lost both Hogan to the Patriots and Harvin to retirement. The Bills did draft Kolby Listenbee, and they do have Marcus Easley who is primarily a special teamer, but after that the guys are just not good. 

The Bills have Leonard Hankerson, Greg Little, Greg Salas, Walter Powell, Dezmin Lewis, Gary Chambers, Marquise Goodwin, Jarrett Boykin and Davonte Allen. Let’s face it, if they go into the season with those players at the wide receiver position they are screwed. 

I think the Bills should add a player who has a relationship with Tyrod Taylor. I would sign Anquan Boldin if I was the Bills. Yes he is 35, but he has experience in Greg Roman’s offense as well as was a former teammate of Tyrod in Baltimore.  I think this would make the most sense.  The Bills can sign him to a one year deal with an option for a second year, the same they did with Percy Harvin. 

Boldin had 69 receptions in 2015 and was targeted 110 times. He still has the juice and could be a great option. The Bills have a couple other solid veterans that could help them out available. Roddy White, Andre Johnson, and Marques Colston are all options that could make sense for the Bills. I just think the Bills need a veteran on their team. Who would you want the Bills to sign?
