Brandon Reilly knew he would have to earn his roster spot in Buffalo with a strong training camp. Then things got even more competitive for the former Nebraska wide receiver when the Bills traded with Cleveland for former first-round pick Corey Coleman.
Reilly brushed it off. Besides, he thrives on the competition.
“I always kind of have that chip on my shoulder and that fire lit,” Reilly told NYup.com. “It’s kind of an always, everyday kind of thing for me. It adds competition to the room, and I feel like that’s when I play at my best.”
Earlier this week, Reilly had a 59-yard catch and run.

The play was even singled out by his coach, Sean McDermott.
“They made some plays on the ball. I liked their effort down the field, even (like) Brandon Reilly’s catch and run before half,” McDermott told the media.
If all goes well, Reilly sees the potential for a big season in first-year coordinator Brian Daboll’s offense.
“There’s a lot of room for creativity and craftiness and I feel like that’s the best part of my game,” Reilly said. “It suits me well and I love playing in it. Hopefully I can play in it all year.”
