Buffalo Bills 2000s All-Decade Team: Wide Receiver No. 2

Matt Warren is Associate Director of NFL coverage for SB Nation and previously covered the Bills for Buffalo Rumblings for more than a decade.

Buffalo Bills wideout Eric Moulds won the receiver of the decade by a wide margin. Today we're going to determine his counterpart on the other side of the Bills All-Decade offense.

Each one of the remaining wideouts has a claim to the throne. Price had the best season. Reed played the most games. Evans has the best stats. Vote for the best wide receiver of the decade from the list.

Peerless Price
Price joined the Bills in the 1999 NFL Draft as a second-round pick. After four successful seasons in Buffalo, including his 94-catch, 1,252-yard year in 2002, Price was traded to the Falcons for a first-round pick that the Bills would use to select RB Willis McGahee. After disappointing at his turn as a No. 1 receiver in Atlanta followed by a disappointing year in Dallas, Price returned to the Bills, playing two more seasons before retiring due to a neck injury. In the decade, Price started 67 games for the Bills, caught 257 passes for 3,379 yards and scored 22 touchdowns. His 2002 campaign was the fourth-most receiving yards by any Bill in the decade and tops for any player on this list.

Josh Reed
The Bills drafted Josh Reed in the second round of the 2002 NFL Draft. In his eight years with the Bills, Reed started 52 games, playing in 111 total, and caught 311 passes for 3,575 yards and 10 touchdowns, never having more than two TD receptions in a year. He played in more games in the '00s than any other Bills receiver.

Lee Evans
Immediately after being drafted in the first round of the 2004 NFL Draft, Evans put his mark on the Buffalo Bills. His rookie season was outstanding, catching 48 balls for 843 yards at a whopping 17.6 yards per reception. For his career, Evans has started 89 games, amassing 340 receptions for 5,356 yards and 39 touchdowns, all number two to Eric Moulds in the decade. Evans leads for the decade in touchdowns and his yards per reception (15.8) blows every other Bills WR out of the water in that time frame. It's also worth nothing that Evans has had three quarterbacks start 16 games and another start eight during his time in Buffalo. He was also cursed in coaches, having four offensive coordinators in his six seasons.

Now it's your turn to vote on who was the best Bills wide receiver of the decade. Feel free to leave your rationale in the comments section.
