Keep looking at wide receivers

The agent for Buffalo wide receiver Josh Reed told the Buffalo News his client gave strong consideration to signing with the Panthers before deciding to stay with the Bills.

Although the names of Isaac Bruce, David Givens and Keyshawn Johnson also have been tied to the Panthers, team officials have been downplaying interest in wide receivers.

But, where there's smoke, there usually is fire. And the Reed visit and contract offer is the strongest smoke yet. Look for interest in a receiver to continue and look for it to be someone like Reed, a player with moderate production and some upside, at a mid-level price.
