BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — It looks like the Buffalo Bills may have found another weapon for QB Josh Allen.

According to a report from Farhan Lalji of TSN, the Bills have signed WR Duke Williams, who led the Canadian Football League during the 2018 season in receiving yards.

Williams was undrafted following a rocky career at Auburn University. He joined the Los Angeles Rams as an undrafted free agent before being released before the regular season.

In his two seasons with the Edmonton Eskimos of the CFL, Williams recorded more than 2,000 yards and 13 touchdowns. This last season was his best where he led the league in receiving yards and tied the league lead in touchdowns. He was granted a release by the Eskimos so he could pursue NFL opportunities.
