Source: Bills to attend Gordon's pro day
By James Walker
The Buffalo Bills will be one of several teams attending former Baylor receiver Josh Gordon’s pro day on Thursday in Houston, a source tells the AFC East blog. Gordon is an intriguing and athletic prospect who is entering the NFL's supplemental draft.
Buffalo had a great offseason, but questions still linger at wide receiver. That could explain the Bills showing some interest in Gordon. Buffalo re-signed top receiver Steve Johnson, but a host of unproven players are competing for the No. 2 receiver role. That list includes Donald Jones, Marcus Easley and rookie third-round pick T.J. Graham.
The Bills might be one of the teams willing to add another receiver at the right price. Gordon, who is listed at 6-foot-3 and 225 pounds, last played at Baylor in 2010, where he recorded 42 receptions for 714 yards and seven touchdowns. Early reports suggest he could go anywhere from the second-to-fourth round of the supplemental draft.
