WR - BUF
Week 17 Outlook
Buffalo Bills WR Kenny Stills has been elevated from the team's practice squad ahead of Sunday's AFC Championship Game against the Kansas City Chiefs.
The addition of Stills adds even more speed to an explosive Bills' receiving corps helmed by Stefon Diggs and will provide an additional deep threat for the Chiefs secondary to be weary of on Sunday. The former Houston Texans wide out signed with Buffalo as a free agent at the beginning of January. It will be interesting to watch how much chemistry and continuity the newcomer has been able to develop with quarterback Josh Allen in his first start in the AFC Championship game on Sunday night in Arrowhead Stadium.
The Bills officially signed WR Kenny Stills to their practice squad.
This is simply Cole Beasley (knee) insurance. We'll know more about Stills' chances at suiting up for Buffalo's playoff run once we see some practice reports on Beasley.
Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle is reporting that free agent WR Kenny Stills is expected to sign with the Bills.
Stills will officially sign with the Bills and could be practicing with his new team as soon as next week. Buffalo is loaded at wide receiver as his addition is mainly for depth purposes. The 28-year-old WR was waived by Houston earlier this season. Stills hauled in 11 receptions for 144 yards and one touchdown over 10 games for the Texans in 2020.
Former Houston Texans wide receiver Kenny Stills is visiting the Buffalo Bills in the hopes of getting a deal done.
Per Schefter, there is optimism that Stills and Bills will be able to agree to terms providing he can pass his physical and then clear protocols. Stills was a surprise release by the receiver needy Texans and somehow went unclaimed on waivers. Stills will be an upgrade on Andre Roberts as the fifth receiver and can help fill the void often left by the perpetually hampered John Brown.
Cameron Wolfe of ESPN reports the Texans are releasing WR Kenny Stills.
Wolfe notes that this is a mutual parting. Stills (quad) was ruled out of Thursday's Thanksgiving matchup against the Lions, but he now has a chance to sign with a contender if he's healthy. Stills will go on waivers for now. This clears up a crowded Houston receiver corps a little. Will Fuller and Brandin Cooks are the top-two guys moving forward, with Randall Cobb the clear No. 3 when healthy.
