The Buffalo Bills had the No. 3 offense in the NFL this past year thanks in no small part to a versatile offense that could beat teams in a variety of ways. So they’re making sure to lock down one of their most versatile wide receivers.
On Sunday, the Bills announced that they are re-signing wide receiver Isaiah McKenzie to a two-year deal. In 2021 McKenzie had 20 catches for 178 receiving yards and one touchdown.
But McKenzie also served as the Bills’ starting punt returner and kickoff returner. He returned 24 kickoffs for an average of 24.3 yards per return and 19 punts for 147 return yards this past season.
In four years with the Bills, McKenzie has over 1,000 yards from scrimmage and 10 rushing-receiving touchdowns. In the return game he has 35 punt returns for 322 yards and one touchdown along with a 22.4 kickoff return average.
The #Bills and WR Isaiah McKenzie have agreed to terms on a 2-year deal worth a total of $8M, source said.

Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen became the first quarterback in franchise history to record multiple 4,000-yard seasons. He’s developed into a megastar thanks in large part to a superb supporting cast.
The Bills are getting closer and closer every year to making their first trip to the Super Bowl since the early-1990s. Perhaps this will be the year they finally get the job done.
Do the Bills have the right supporting cast in place to get back to the Super Bowl this year?
NFL free agency begins this coming week.
