The Buffalo Bills have added another receiving weapon for quarterback Josh Allen.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the AFC outfit is signing former Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling to a one-year deal worth up to $4.5 million. The contract is said to include a $1.125 million signing bonus.

The wideout spent the last two seasons with the Chiefs, winning a pair of Super Bowls with the team. However, he is coming off the worst year of his career, having made just 21 receptions for 315 yards and one touchdown.

His 2023 campaign included a dropped catch that would have been the game-winning touchdown against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 11. But he put in a 62-yard performance in the Chiefs’ divisional-round win against his new team and scored a TD against the San Francisco 49ers in the Super Bowl.

The Chiefs released him at the end of the season to the tune of $12 million saved against their cap.

The Buffalo Bills Have A New Deep-Ball Threat

Marquez Valdes-Scantling was a fifth-round pick by the Green Bay Packers in 2018.

He caught 33 passes for a career-high 690 yards and six touchdowns in 2020, also leading the NFL in yards per reception with 20.9.

The 29-year-old is a deep-ball threat, which should complement Josh Allen’s arm, though it won’t make up for the loss of Stefon Diggs, who joined the Houston Texans via trade this offseason. The Bills also lost Gabe Davis to the Jacksonville Jaguars in free agency.

The team’s receiver room now features Curtis Samuel, Khalil Shakir, Mack Hollins, KJ Hamler, Chase Claypool, and second-round pick Keon Coleman from Florida State.
