With Terrell Owens on his way out of town and unrestricted free agent Josh Reed not being offered a contract, the Bills appear to be in serious need of help at the WR position. But instead of searching for starting wideouts through free agency, the club seems content to allow its in-house options to compete for the job. GM Buddy Nix said at the NFL owners' meetings that Buffalo is not targeting any of the current free-agent pass catchers and is eager to give the team's lesser-used receivers an opportunity to seize the vacant spot opposite Lee Evans. The top candidates for the No. 2 job are James Hardy, a highly touted second-rounder who has barely played in his two pro seasons, and Steve Johnson, a third-year player who had just two grabs in 2009. Of course, it's likely that Nix will add at least one receiver during the draft, but with so many other needs, he might not address that position until the later rounds.
