All season long the Bills have been getting contributions from unexpected places, and that will continue in the final weeks of the season. With Lee Evans going on I.R. on Dec. 14 due to an ankle injury, the team will rely on a trio of undrafted rookie receivers to complement former seventh-round selection Stevie Johnson. David Nelson has been making plays all year long; Donald Jones has been a top target recently; and now Naaman Roosevelt will be added to the mix. A former star at the University of Buffalo, Roosevelt is familiar with the playbook, as he has been with the team since training camp. He's also created a bond with starting QB Ryan Fitzpatrick, which should pay dividends during games. "Naaman's a playmaker. He's a guy that if you throw it in his direction, he's going to come down with it," Fitzpatrick said. "He knows the entire offense and he's a guy that I've thrown to a lot and feel comfortable with."
