Andre Holmes hasn’t signed with the Buffalo Bills, but even after the fiasco on Wednesday night, the veteran wideout will make an official free-agent visit to the team’s headquarters in Orchard Park, New York.
#RumblingsNewsMan Jeff Hunter covered the (likely) unprecedented fiasco here. In summary, it seems as though the NFLPA incorrectly reported Buffalo’s offer to Holmes as a signed contract, when in fact he had not accepted it at the time.
So there shouldn’t be any bad blood between Holmes and the Bills, which is probably part of the reason why he’s making the visit.
Holmes is 6’4” (and some change), 210 pounds and went undrafted out of Hillsdale in 2011. He’ll be 29 on June 16 and spent the past four years with the Raiders. In his NFL career he has 102 grabs, 1,462 yards, and 12 receiving touchdowns.
He pieced together a solid 47-catch, 693-yard, four-score campaign in 2014 while playing 69.5% of the offensive snaps, yet was pushed down the depth chart in Oakland the following year with the arrival of Michael Crabtree and Amari Cooper.
In 2016, Holmes had 14 catches, 126 yards, and three touchdowns on 25 targets while playing 23.3% of Oakland’s offensive snaps.
