Inside The Bills

Stevie pumped by level of WR competition

Posted by Chris Brown on July 10, 2013 – 9:36 am

While we take the time to examine just how many receivers will be kept on the 53-man roster this fall in our Top 25 Countdown to Training Camp today (Wednesday), we also thought we’d shed some light on what the prevailing thought is inside the locker room on the degree of receiver talent that exists on the Bills roster.

Stevie Johnson is pretty encouraged by the collection of talent, albeit young, that he suddenly sees assembled around him as this offseason comes to a close.

“I like it. It’s exciting having the new guys come in,” Johnson said. “I liked what I saw. We’ve got a lot of talent. I think we’ll be a problem when it comes to Sundays.”

Offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett, as is his practice, is looking at the passing targets in a different way than most. It includes all skill position players, not just receivers. So the competition will run deeper than just strictly the receiver position when it comes to roles in the passing game this year.

“It’s everybody on the field,” Hackett said. “Whoever those best five are, put them out there and line them up all over the place.”
