Bills sign Boldin to provide experience at receiver spot

Specifically, having Boldin could make it easier for the Bills to part ways with veteran receiver Andre Holmes and acquire a third-round compensatory draft selection next spring.

The Buffalo Bills signed free agent wide receiver Anquan Boldin to a one-year contract, the team announced Monday. On a positive note, he did finish last season strong, with touchdowns in three of the final four games, including an eight-catch, 85-yard, two touchdown game in the fantasy Super Bowl Week 16.

Bills quarterback Tyrod Taylor also has a familiarity with Boldin, as the two were both members of the Baltimore Ravens in 2011 and '12. The Bills were now pairing oft-injured wideout Sammy Watkins with Zay Jones, a second-round draft pick from East Carolina, making for plenty of uncertainty at the top of the depth chart.

Boldin is expected to compete for the role of No. 2 wide receiver opposite Sammy Watkins. Everybody was very confident the Bills were a good fit, but I knew he had other options out there. Even if I had the likes of Jerry Rice or guys like that.to get an Anquan is an addition.

After posting the second-most rushing touchdowns (13) in his eight-year National Football League career, Shady McCoy vaulted himself back into a consensus first round draft pick in all formats.

"That's a bonus", Beane said of Boldin's connection with Taylor.
