WR Andre Holmes agrees to terms with Bills

Posted Mar 18, 2017

On Saturday the Bills agreed to terms with former Raiders wide receiver Andre Holmes.

It wasn’t a done deal a few days ago, but on Saturday the Bills finalized a contract agreement with free agent WR Andre Holmes. Buffalo made an offer to Holmes earlier in the week, and he agreed to terms on the deal at One Bills Drive at the close of the week. 

Holmes, 28, has played the last four seasons for the Oakland Raiders. His most productive year came in 2014 when he had 47 receptions for 693 yards and a four touchdowns. 

A former undrafted rookie signing of the Minnesota Vikings in 2011, Holmes didn’t appear in a regular season game until 2012 with the Dallas Cowboys. All 12 of his career touchdowns however, have come in a Raiders uniform.  

A size receiver at 6-4 and 210 pounds, Holmes is capable of winning jump ball battles and can make plays in the end zone. He’s expected to compete for a top four role in Buffalo’s receiving corps.
