    I think you can fix the WR room through free agency.

    First Tier

    Curtis Samuel
    Marvin Jones
    Zach Pascal

    Use Fitz money to pay one of these. Fitz has to go. They are all in the $9-10 million range.

    Second Tier

    Keelan Cole
    David Moore
    Dede Westbrook
    Josh Reynolds

    Probably looking at $3-4 million for any of these guys.

    Third Tier

    Keep Kirk as your #3 and then fill the balance from whomever you can bring into camp and can also play special teams.

    Allen has improved dramatically, but it’s sick how much separation the Bills receivers get. Diggs separation skills are significantly better than Hopkins. Murray would have Allen’s numbers too if he had Diggs & Beasley. This isn’t rocket science! We didn’t have 1 single WR whose main skill was to create separation. Not 1.

    Devante Smith is a guy so smooth and fluid on his moves he can easily get open

    If the losses of Pharoah Cooper and Demerie Byrd are major issues please blow up the stadium.

    That's the problem. Sullivan was whispering all the time.

    Yeah, the 11.2 average in 2018 was in 2 games. One return for 45 yards and 5 more for an average of 4.4. And 7.6 yards per return in 2019 is hardly anything to write home about.

    Would he have done better than Kirk? Sure, couldn't have been much worse. But it's not as though he's some incandescent talent on punt returns or an invaluable player who should never have been allowed to leave. Once again... it merits a big shrug.

    Surprisingly, Kirk's 6.0 average was #15 among returners with 20+ returns. Cooper was #16 this year. If Cooper had been retained and repeated his 7.6 average from 2019, he'd have been #10.
