The Bills haven't wasted any time in addressing a couple of needs for the 2012 season, as they have come to agreements with WR David Clowney and LB Scott McKillop. McKillop played for Bills DC Dave Wannstedt at Pitt.

BUFFALO, N.Y. -- The Buffalo Bills are wasting no time addressing their depth at receiver this offseason after free agent David Clowney agreed to a contract with the team on Wednesday.

I like both these moves a lot. Clowney has real chance to revive his career here IMO.

I like these two moves as well. I think at worst McKillop will be a solid back up and a nice special teamer, but Clowney is puzzling that he really couldnt crack the Panthers regular rotation with Steve Smith and bunch of un proven guys. I know LaFell has come on this season but you would have thought he could have been the third or forth WR at least.

2 low profile singings ... But I definately like it ... Clowney's best year was in 2009 with the Jets.

The McKillop signing intrigues me a little. I get the Pitt connection, but in the draft, he was looked at as almost exclusively a 3-4 ILB. Does this mean we plan on staying with the 3-4? I am probably just reading too much into it and Wannstedt is just giving a former player a chance to make the roster, but it is something to think about.

I also like the Clowney signing, I said last year during UFA that he could of been an under the radar WR that would fit our system, and I still believe that.

Clowney ran a 4.37 40 at the combine in 07, he is also still you too only 26 years old.

I guess I'll put this in this thread, because I didn't see it elsewhere...but...

The Bills, on top of Clowney and McKillop, have signed LB Robert Eddins, DB Prince Miller, DE Jay Ross, G Jake Vermiglio, G Keith Williams.
