The restricted free agent comes back to Buffalo

According to a tweet from his agency, the Buffalo Bills have re-signed wide receiver Isaiah McKenzie. Terms of the deal were not disclosed, but it can be assumed that it’s for less than the restricted free agent tender amount of just over $2 million.

McKenzie, who turns 25 on April 9, entered the league as a fifth-round pick of the Denver Broncos in 2017. He played in twelve games for Denver, serving primarily as a kickoff and punt return specialist, before he was claimed off waivers by Buffalo in November 2018.

McKenzie made an immediate impact with the Bills, as he touched the ball on four of his seven offensive snaps in Buffalo’s 41-10 victory over the New York Jets. In that game, McKenzie caught his only target, a 14-yard reception, and added three rushes for 32 yards.

That game was a harbinger of McKenzie’s role with Buffalo, as he has served as the team’s Swiss Army knife-slash-gadget receiver for the better part of the last two seasons. In 22 games with the Bills, McKenzie has 45 receptions, one receiving touchdown, 18 rushing attempts, 115 rushing yards, and two rushing touchdowns. While he has returned kicks, he has done so sparingly with Andre Roberts in the fold.

McKenzie was Buffalo’s third wideout in terms of snap share last year, playing on 42% of the team’s offensive snaps. With Stefon Diggs added to John Brown and Cole Beasley, that number will certainly fall, and that’s if McKenzie even makes the final roster. He’ll be battling with Roberts, Duke Williams, and Robert Foster, among others.

When the contract numbers and length become available, we’ll update you accordingly.
