Easley standing out on special teams
By Mike Rodak
When the NFL released its latest update to Pro Bowl fan voting on Wednesday, it didn't come as much surprise that Buffalo Bills wide receiver Marcus Easley was receiving some consideration for the special teams position on the ballot.
Easley ranks 10th among players receiving votes for the spot, making him a long shot to make the trip to Hawaii next month. But at one point in training camp, some may have considered him a long shot to even make the Bills' roster.
The fourth-year receiver cracked the 53-man roster and has played in all 12 games this season. In addition to recording his first NFL catch, Easley leads the Bills in special teams tackles.
Bills' special teams tackle leaders
WR Marcus Easley -- 17
LB Nigel Bradham -- 11
LS Garrison Sanborn -- 9
WR Chris Hogan -- 8
LB Arthur Moats -- 6
