John Brown says he’s ready to play for Bills

Divisional Round - Baltimore Ravens v Buffalo Bills

The Bills are one of the teams in the running for Odell Beckham Jr., but there’s another option for a veteran addition to their wide receiver group already in the organization.

John Brown signed to the team’s practice squad a few days ago and he feels confident that he’d be able to help the Bills out right now despite being out of the league since playing a handful of snaps for the Buccaneers in the playoffs.

“If they needed me to play today, I’ll be ready to play,” Brown said, via Mark Gaughan of the Buffalo News. “It doesn’t take long for me to pick up everything to get my mind right. Whatever this team needs me to do, I’m here to do it.”

Brown played for the Bills in 2019 and 2020, so that familiarity should make it a bit easier for him to get up to speed.

The Bills currently have four healthy receivers and they’ve promoted Tanner Gentry from practice squad three times, so he’d have to be signed to the active roster if they’re going to bring him up again. Calling Brown up would be one way to avoid that, but there are a couple of other receivers on the practice squad who could also be elevated instead of Gentry.

  1. They need RB’s the ones they got stink they should have traded for Hunt the Bills are to one dimensional.

  2. @ packers76, there are a few teams like that I can think of right off of the top of my head with the Bills, Eagles and Ravens being 3 of them, it’s looking like if a team has a run capable QB they don’t even worry about getting a good RB. I keep hearing where RBs are a dime a dozen now days but I’m not seeing it since there are usually less than 10 a year that break 1000yds a season and with 16 games a season 1000yds isn’t very good, that’s only an average of 62.5YPG and with 17 games it drops to 58.8YPG. Except for a couple/few of the RBs today the rest wouldn’t be a pimple on those old RBs of the ’60s-90s ( ! )

  3. There’s nothing wrong with Bills running backs. They are excellent. The team is just pass centric. Like when Kelly was around, the saying was “When you have a big gun, you shoot it”. Allen is the biggest gun going.
