Buffalo Bills All-Drought team: Offensive flex player

New, comments

Fred Jackson, Lee Evans, or Charles Clay?

I had said that our Buffalo Bills best-of-the-Drought team was complete after we selected a defensive coordinator, but upon tallying the results I noticed I was mistaken. The offense still needs an eleventh man. Over the course of runoff polls and defensive polls, I forgot to circle back so we could pick one more player for our team!

The offense currently stands with a running back, two receivers, and a tight end. We’ll be allowing you to vote for your favorite skill position player, a la the Flex position in fantasy football, for the last person in our offense. The candidates are the runners-up from each of the skill position polls that ran their course.

Fred Jackson

Jackson actually scraped out a razor-thin win over LeSean McCoy in the first round of voting, but decisively lost the runoff when the other candidates were removed. The man needs no introduction, ranking third in franchise rushing yards and combined rushing & receiving touchdowns. He’s a lock for the Wall of Fame at some point in his future.

Lee Evans

Evans narrowly lost a runoff poll to Stevie Johnson, who joined Eric Moulds as a starting receiver for the All-Drought team. Evans had the best rookie season by a Bills receiver in history when he notched 48 catches for 843 yards and nine touchdowns in 2004. More than just a deep threat, Evans ranks third in receiving yards and touchdowns and fourth in receptions among all Buffalo Bills.

Charles Clay

Clay finished second in his poll to Scott Chandler. Clay has spent the past three seasons as Buffalo’s starting tight end, with 157 receptions for 1638 yards and nine touchdowns during that span. He caught 57 passes in 2016, the second-most ever by a Bills tight end.


Voting time! Which of these players deserves to stand on the All-Drought Bills squad? When the polling is decided, we’ll wrap this series with a look at the whole team.
