Bills Shopping Roscoe Parrish

Posted by Mike Florio on April 9, 2009, 6:33 p.m.

With a glut of wide receivers and a 2008 first-round defensive back (Leodis McKelvin) who can return kicks on the roster, the Buffalo Bills are testing the waters for interest in Roscoe Parrish.

According to a league source, the Bills are shopping Parrish, primarily as an exploratory measure.

Parrish was a second-round pick in the 2005 draft, and he has appeared in 55 of a possible 64 career games. He has served primarily as a kick returner, with only 1,097 total receiving yards in four NFL seasons. He also has more fumbles (seven) than receiving touchdowns (five).

Signed for three more seasons, Parrish is due to earn base salaries of $1 million in 2009, $1.025 million in 2010, and $1.025 million in 2011.

The Bills currently have nine receivers on the roster: Parrish, Terrell Owens, Lee Evans, Josh Reed, James Hardy, Felton Huggins, Justin Jenkins, Steve Johnson, and C.J. Hawthorne.

I've seen him play a lot as you know D. He's got speed to die for but he's one of those "great potential" guys. I haven't seen any indication he'll live up to it.

Yes, and he is also on the short side. It would be nice to finally get a WR that Obama would not have to bow down to to shake their hand. ;) When the Jets go to the White House after their Super Bowl, of course.
