After an expected split, the Bills have called a top contender to sign Odell Beckham Jr.

It’s unclear where Beckham will fit into the Bills’ crowded receiving corps, which is so loaded with skill that certain players have had to go long stretches without receiving many targets from quarterback Josh Allen. Last year’s No. 2 receiver, Cole Beasley, set a career high with 11 catches against the Washington Football Team and then had a total of four targets over the next two weeks.
Sean McDermott, the Bills’ head coach, explained that Beasley and other receivers will unavoidably go through periods of inactivity.
“It’s difficult when you don’t have access to the football.” And I understand,” McDermott told SI.com’s Bills Central’s Nick Fierro. “There is only one football, and sometimes it’s not just one game, it’s two games, three games, and… Nokia News – Quick Summary
