Some jersey number changes

Posted by Chris Brown on May 20, 2014 – 12:37 pm

Some of the newer Bills players on the roster have been assigned their jersey numbers.

RB Bryce Brown, acquired in a trade with Philadelphia during draft weekend, will wear jersey number 35. He wore 34 with Philadelphia, but that is obviously not available due to a certain Hall of Famer.

WR Ramses Barden is going to be the first player to wear 13 since Stevie Johnson’s departure and newly signed WR Caleb Holley is going to stick with the number he was given during his tryout in rookie minicamp, 86.

A bit more on WR Holley

Posted by Chris Brown on May 20, 2014 – 10:27 am

Bills newest WR Caleb Holley, who was signed Tuesday after a successful three-day tryout in Buffalo’s rookie minicamp, put up some good numbers at East Central University in Ada, Oklahoma. Here’s a closer look at some of those figures and his measurables at his pro day.

Holley tested at the Tulsa pro day on March 11th this spring. He clocked a 4.62 40-time, had a 38 1/2-inch vertical and 10-foot six-inch broad jump and a 6.78 second three cone time. With the exception of the 40 time all of those figures are very good and help to explain why Holley can separate from coverage and make plays on the ball outside his body frame.

Holley’s senior season was a good one with 55 catches for 970 yards and nine touchdowns. He led his team in receiving as a junior, but had just 25 receptions for 343 yards and two touchdowns. The reason why was he was playing with a freshman quarterback, who was learning on the job.

He’s also a native of Anchorage, Alaska so playing in cold weather has never been an issue for him.
