Herbie Teope of The Topeka Capital-Journal reports that the Bills are signing free agent WR Austin Willis after working him out on Saturday.
Willis, 23, was recently released by the Oakland Raiders last week and was gaining a large amount of attention from “several” other interested teams.
With WR Chris Hogan being in jeopardy of missing the regular season opener, WR Percy Harvin dealing with injury issues, and WR Robert Woods just now returning to the lineup, Willis provides some much needed depth to the position.
Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports that the Bills are working out WR Austin Willis on Saturday, and that “several” other teams are interested in his services.
Willis, 23, was recently released by the Oakland Raiders last week. An undrafted product out of Emporia State, Willis touts 4.3 forty-yard-dash speed, and recorded a 40-inch vertical leap for scouts. Given his measurable, it is not surprising to see him garner attention.
We will provide more information regarding the Bills and Willis as the news becomes available.
