Bills “Really Close” To Re-Signing WR Leonard Hankerson

Bills GM Doug Whaley told the team’s official website that they are “really close” to re-signing WR Leonard Hankerson, per Mike Rodak.

Hankerson, 27, is a former third-round pick of the Redskins back in 2011. He signed a one-year, $1 million contract with the Falcons back in March of last year, but was later waived and claimed off of waivers by the Patriots.

Interestingly enough, the Patriots cut him loose after a few weeks and he was once again claimed off of waivers, this time by the Bills.

He’s now testing the open market as an unrestricted free agent for the second time in as many years.

In 2015, Hankerson appeared in 10 games and recorded 26 receptions for 327 yards receiving and three touchdowns for the Falcons.
