Embarrassing Bills Report Illustrates Disastrous WR Room at OTAs

Josh Allen and the Bills have had several intense battles with Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs, but their offense will look different next year after trading star WR Stefon Diggs to the Texans in the offseason.

With both Diggs and Gabe Davis gone, Buffalo’s wide receiver corps now consists largely of unproven players. They drafted Florida State’s Keon Coleman to help, but early reports from OTAs suggest the position group is struggling.

Journeyman Chase Claypool, who had short and unremarkable stints with Chicago and Miami before joining Buffalo, has reportedly been the most consistent wideout so far. Given his inconsistent past, this isn’t reassuring for Bills fans.

Chase Claypool Reportedly ‘Most Consistent’ WR at Bills OTAs

Bills beat writer Matt Parrino reported that Claypool is vying for a spot on the 53-man roster, being the most consistent receiver in practice. Known for his inconsistency early in his career, this either means Claypool has improved or the other receivers are underperforming.

Claypool has only eight catches for 77 yards over the last two years, following a promising start in Pittsburgh. Despite his physical attributes and strong potential, his effort and performance have declined. He might be revitalizing his career with the Bills, but if I were Josh Allen, I’d be concerned.

Buffalo’s projected depth chart includes Khalil Shakir, Coleman, Curtis Samuel, former Chief Marquez Valdes-Scantling, and Mack Hollins. While the Chiefs have their own receiver issues, their group seems preferable to Buffalo’s.

This report could either be a beat writer highlighting Claypool or a sign of significant problems for the Bills. They’re trying to revamp their offense quickly, while the Chiefs are gearing up for a potential three-peat.

Currently, the Chiefs have the best odds to win the AFC (+370) at FanDuel Sportsbook, with the Bills tied for third-best with the Cincinnati Bengals at +700. The rest of the summer will tell, but my bet is clear.
