The Buffalo Bills are considering a strategic move to bolster their offense by potentially acquiring a $15 million asset from a rival team within their division. Recent reports suggest that they could target a wide receiver, potentially Kendrick Bourne, from their AFC East counterparts.

In 2021, the Buffalo Bills pursued Bourne during his initial free agency period, but he ultimately signed with the New England Patriots. Now, with Bourne possibly becoming available again, the Bills might revisit their interest, although competition from other AFC East teams, notably the New York Jets, is anticipated.

Bourne has proven to be a dependable player for the Patriots since joining them in 2021. Despite a recent ACL tear, he led the Patriots in receptions, receiving yards, and touchdowns before his injury last season. Although Bourne has expressed openness to re-signing with the Patriots, there have been reported challenges in contract negotiations, suggesting that his future with the team is uncertain.

In the event that Bourne doesn’t return to New England, the Bills could view him as a viable option to complement Stefon Diggs in their receiving corps. With potential departures of Gabe Davis and Trent Sherfield in free agency, the Bills are exploring various options to fortify their offensive arsenal.

One alternative option for the Bills is Troy Franklin from Oregon, a prospect who could provide speed and athleticism to their receiving corps. With their 28th overall pick in the upcoming NFL Draft, selecting Franklin could address the Bills’ offensive needs and add a dynamic playmaker to their roster.
