With T.O. looking like he's on his way out, along with Roscoe Parrish and Josh Reed, that leaves the Bills with speedster Lee Evans, Steve Johnson, James Hardy, and Justin Jenkins. This is hardly a threatening receiving corps.
The Bills need a true No. 2 to help take the double teams away from Evans.
Dez Bryant was hailed by many to be the best WR in the nation. Heading into the 2009 campaign, Bryant was right up there with Arrelious Benn and Brandon LaFell as the top draft-eligible receivers in the nation.
For different reasons, all three of those players are having some issues, but it is hard to blame any of the receivers for their lack of production in 2009.
However, there was a time when Bryant was a productive receiver. As a freshman he caught 43 passes for 622 yards and six scores.
In 2008 Bryant turned into the team's top receiver and had an amazing season. He caught 87 passes for 1,480 yards and 19 touchdowns. There were only six passing touchdowns that went to somebody besides Bryant.
The 2009 season started fine for Bryant. In three games he caught 17 passes for 323 yards and four touchdowns. It looked like Bryant might keep up with his numbers from the 2008 campaign, but then trouble happened.
Bryant lied to the NCAA over matters that were not illegal as far as his eligibility was concerned, but the NCAA suspended him for the entire season anyway.
