The Buffalo Bills have maintained a relatively subdued presence in the initial days of free agency, mainly focusing on retaining their existing players and bolstering depth within the team. Continuing this trend, the Bills have reached an agreement with veteran wide receiver Mack Hollins, as reported by ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler.

The contract spans one year and holds the potential to reach up to $3 million, although the precise base value remains undisclosed. Hollins, who spent the previous season with the Atlanta Falcons under a one-year contract worth $2.5 million, enjoyed his most productive season in 2022 while playing for the Las Vegas Raiders, achieving career highs in receptions (57), receiving yards (690), and touchdowns (4). Prior to his stint with the Falcons, Hollins played for the Miami Dolphins from 2019 to 2021, following his entry into the league with the Philadelphia Eagles.

Standing at 6-foot-4 and weighing 220 pounds, Hollins adds depth to the Bills’ wide receiver corps, particularly in light of the departures of Gabe Davis, Deonte Harty, and Trent Sherfield. Known primarily as a boundary receiver, Hollins brings extensive experience in special teams play.

The Bills recently saw Gabe Davis, a notable free agent, sign a reported three-year, $39 million contract with the Jacksonville Jaguars. Meanwhile, Trent Sherfield and Deonte Harty remain available in free agency, although the team parted ways with Harty last week as a cost-saving measure.

Expected to occupy a backup role behind Stefon Diggs and Khalil Shakir, Hollins is likely to contribute to the Bills’ receiving unit, with the team poised to potentially add one or more receivers through the upcoming NFL draft.

Despite experiencing a decline in production last season, Hollins has established himself as a consistent deep threat in recent years, recording receptions of 45 yards or more in each of the last three seasons. His career-long reception of 65 yards occurred in 2021 while playing for the Dolphins.
