Bills Reportedly Agree To Terms With WR Aaron Rhea

New, comments

The Buffalo Bills needed a body to bolster its injury-plagued receiving corps, and they've gone and signed one. Sports Management Worldwide, the agency to undrafted rookie free agent Aaron Rhea, tweets that Rhea has agreed to terms with the Bills.

The 6'1", 202-pound Rhea caught 35 passes for 322 yards with three scores in his final season at Stephen F. Austin. He went undrafted during the 2010 NFL Draft, signed a free agent contract with the Minnesota Vikings, but was subsequently waived and reached an injury settlement back in June. He'd recently had wrist surgery at that time.

Buffalo played their first pre-season game on Friday night with just seven healthy receivers. The team waived the injured Felton Huggins last week, is dealing with a potentially serious injury to rookie Marcus Easley, and will also be without James Hardy for another few days at least. The Bills needed a player for camp depth, and Rhea will get an opportunity to showcase his talents as Buffalo's eighth receiver for the time being.
