We are learning that San Antonio Commanders wide receiver Mekale McKay will be working out for the Buffalo Bills sometime this week. The Bills expressed interest after the league folded. McKay is a huge target and a deep threat.
McKay finished the AAF season in 8 games with 22 receptions for 375 yards and 4 touchdowns.
McKay, a former high school hoops star who received interest from Louisville and Kentucky to play that sport, transferred from Arkansas after his freshman season to Cincinnati to be closer to an ailing grandmother. The NCAA allowed waived the transfer year in his case, so he was able to play immediately for the Bearcats. He made a solid contribution to the Razorbacks in his only season there, starting 10 times and catching 21 passes for 317 yards and two scores.
All McKay did in the wide-open UC offense was average over 30 yards a catch (16-485) with seven touchdowns in 2013. His junior (44-725, eight TD) and senior (27-507, two scores) seasons displayed the similar big-play ability to NFL scouts despite his playing for a team that spreads the ball around to six or seven receivers every game.
He is a big play producer, and the Bills have a quarterback with a Big Arm, it could end up being a solid match in heaven.
