It's been a staple of the Bills offense since 2004, and it's still nearly impossible to stop: send Lee Evans deep.
He had an impressive 13 receptions over 20 yards last year, and four over 40 yards. Almost every time it seems that if Trent throws the ball deep down the sideline, Lee will be a step ahead of two defenders and let the ball fall over his shoulders in to his hands.
Terrell Owens (or "Tee" as I like to call him) when lining up opposite Lee Evans, may not be the deep threat he has been over the years, but still calls for a double team.
Opposing defenses will either have to double team both receivers, or choose which one to pay attention to.
An ideal formation with the receiving depth the Bills possess would be a four-wide split with Fred Jackson or Dominic Rhodes in the backfield.
This leaves the option of either sending Jackson or Rhodes to the outside where they are legit receiving threats, or let them stay in the backfield to help block or run a draw.
Sending Evans and T.O. deep will draw significant attention from defensive backs, leaving slot receivers Josh Reed, Stevie Johnson, and Roscoe Parrish open in the middle.
With the new offensive line, Turk Schonert is most likely expecting heavy blitzes. If Jackson, Rhodes, or Marshawn Lynch are in the backfield and the defensive backs have their hands full, the draw out of this formation would be ideal.
If Lee or Terrell are in single coverage, the play simply becomes throw it high for T.O. or deep for Evans.
