Buffalo Bills Likely Standing Pat At Wide Receiver

Last week, prior to the Buffalo Bills' blockbuster signing of defensive end Mario Williams, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported that the Bills had been in contact with the representatives for free agent wide receiver Mario Manningham. GM Buddy Nix later denied that report, claiming that no contact had been made with any receiver beyond Robert Meachem.

Regardless of the truth pertaining to Manningham, his two-year agreement with the San Francisco 49ers on Saturday night takes him out of the picture for a Buffalo outfit still seeking definition at the No. 2 receiver spot.

As we said the morning after Meachem reached an agreement with the San Diego Chargers, Nix and company went into free agency with two targets in mind - Williams and Meachem - and nabbed one of them. It was unlikely the moment Meachem signed that the team would pursue another receiver. Particularly now, when Mike Wallace - who would require at least a DeSean Jackson-level contract plus a first-round pick to sign away from the Pittsburgh Steelers - is the only remaining impact receiver technically on the market, it appears as though the Bills will be rolling with the status quo at receiver heading into April's 2012 NFL Draft.
