The Buffalo Bills announced on Tuesday that they have signed veteran wide receivers Jarrett Boykin and Greg Little to reserve/future contracts.
Boykin's signing was reported on last week, when his agent disclosed that the former Green Bay Packers receiver had decided to join the Bills. You can read our coverage of the signing here.
Little is, perhaps, an even more interesting name, despite Boykin's collegiate ties to Bills quarterback Tyrod Taylor. A former second-round pick of the Cleveland Browns in 2011, Little pushes 6'3", weighs 220 pounds, and combines 4.5-second 40-yard dash speed with a 40-plus inch vertical leap. He's a physical specimen.
Unfortunately, that never produced quality production with the Browns; in the three seasons before being released, Little caught 155 passes for 1,821 yards and eight touchdowns, while dropping plenty of passes along the way. He spent the 2014 season in Cincinnati as a reserve, then spent most of 2015 with them on the inactive list, before being released midway through the year.
Between Boykin, Little, and the 6'2" Greg Salas, who played extensively for the Bills in their final two games of the year (and has already been re-signed), Buffalo has been busily adding intriguing, experienced names to that position in the very early weeks of the 2016 offseason.
