(August 25, 2003) — ORCHARD PARK — Free agent Bobby Shaw may have leapfrogged second-year man Josh Reed to earn the Buffalo Bills starting wide receiver job alongside Pro Bowler Eric Moulds.
In Saturday’s 28-24 victory over the St. Louis Rams, Reed finally caught his first passes of the preseason from quarterback Drew Bledsoe, three for 44 yards, including a pretty 29-yarder over-the-middle to set up a field goal try.
But Shaw was more impressive, catching four passes for 43 yards and an 8-yard touchdown. A 23-yard reception to convert a third-and-long play set up another Bills’ score.
“ He’s a very smart receiver in the slot,” Bledsoe said of Shaw, who played for Bills offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride in Jacksonville. “ He does a great job with his moves at the top of his routes and gets himself separation. He has a lot of experience in this offense, so he really understands where we need him to be.”
This article is a from earlier in the week. Watch the Bills last preseason game and see which ever WR has a better game will probably be the starter.
