Bills WR Roscoe Parrish Entering Make-Or-Break Year

Before several young, undrafted Buffalo Bills wide receivers showed glimpses of playmaking potential in the second half of the 2010 regular season, one of the more intriguing stories was the resurrection of slot receiver Roscoe Parrish. Playing under head coach Chan Gailey for the first time, Parrish was quickly re-inserted into Buffalo's offensive lineup - even earning a few starts over Stevie Johnson early in the season - and after eight games, he'd already set a career high in receiving yards (400) and tied a career high in touchdowns (two).

During his best game of the season - a seven-catch, 60-yard performance with a touchdown in a loss to Chicago - Parrish suffered a broken wrist that cut his promising season short.

It's going to be an interesting year for Parrish. Younger talent like David Nelson, Donald Jones and perhaps even Marcus Easley could push him for playing time. That could severely hamper his ability to land a new contract, as he's entering the final year of his current deal. Parrish will turn 29 this fall, and is the eldest receiver on the team not named Lee Evans. As has always been the case, he'll need to fight tooth and nail not just to keep his role as the team's third receiver, but to land that coveted new deal, as well.
