Isn’t Nelson a #2 WR?

Posted by Chris Brown on July 13, 2012 – 8:25 am

An interesting point in the debate we profile in our Top 25 questions until training camp series on Buffalobills.com today (Friday), ‘Who will be the No. 2 receiver?’ is the follow up question of ‘Isn’t that David Nelson?’

After Stevie Johnson, Nelson is probably the most proven receiver after his 61-catch campaign in 2011 that included a game-winning touchdown catch against Oakland in Week 2. But knowing that Nelson is locked in as the team’s primary slot receiver he’s not seen as a number two on the outside or a candidate for that role per se. His rapport with Fitz working out of the slot is valuable.

“David Nelson had a really, really strong offseason and he’s been great in OTAs,” said Fitzpatrick. “He’s really worked on some stuff he’s needed to work at. He’s got great hands and is such a reliable guy.”

Knowing how much the Bills employ three and four wide sets Nelson could very well be the receiver with the second most receptions for the Bills in 2012.
