Aside from college football training camps taking place, the NFL is doing the same.
The NFL regular season kicks off on Sept. 5, but before that, position battles are going on across all 32 NFL organizations. Wide receiver is one that for every NFL team, is a hotly discussed one. Part of that is because five if not six receivers make each team’s roster nowadays.
In Buffalo, QB Josh Allen is looking to take the next step up in his development. Is there a better way to do that than having great receivers around him? The Bills have a former Hawkeye WR in Nick Easley. Easley is likely fighting for a spot on a roster as he went undrafted.
Despite not being drafted, Easley is with a team right now that doesn’t have tons of WR talent. Does that leave a spot open for Easley?
As long as he keeps running routes and making catches like he did here in camp, we don’t see why not:

The throw by Allen was an absolute dime. But, the catch and score by Easley were as good as it gets. You couldn’t ask him to do better there.
You may be able to see Easley in some action when the Bills play their second preseason game at 7 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 16 against the Carolina Panthers.
