The Bills will have a lot of work to do in training camp to figure out how their receiving corps shakes out.
Coach Chan Gailey acknowledged that the position is wide open as well when the team gets to St. John Fisher College.
Just what do the Bills have after No. 1 wideout Lee Evans? It's still hard to say. Judging from practice repetitions during the three-day minicamp, third-year man Steve Johnson will be giving third-year man James Hardy a strong run for a starting job. It's pretty clear veteran Roscoe Parrish is going to get much more of a chance to contribute out of the slot than he got last season.
Hardy's practice repetitions were limited. He underwent an offseason operation on his groin, and Gailey acknowledged that cut into his work on the field during the spring. "He told me he felt a lot better these last two weeks than he had the first few practices," Gailey said.
Undrafted rookie David Nelson, a 6-foot-5 wideout from Florida, also got plenty of action on the outside with the first offensive unit the past three days. Fourth-round draft pick Marcus Easley showed good hands during the spring.
Most around the Bills believe it will be Lee Evans and James Hardy who will eventually receive the majority of reps, but Steve Johnson has been getting a lot of work with the first team to date. Regardless, the #2 receiver on the Bills will not be a hot fantasy commodity.
