The Buffalo Bills have made a significant roster move as they have released former Georgia football wide receiver Isaiah McKenzie. The team had high expectations for the 24-year-old, but it appears those will no longer be fulfilled in upstate New York.
McKenzie was selected by the Bills in 2017 with the 163rd overall pick in the fifth round of the NFL Draft. Buffalo had hoped for him to become a playmaker for their offense and a reliable presence in the passing game.
Unfortunately, McKenzie never quite panned out for the Bills in the way they had hoped he would. He struggled to make an impact on the field, making just nine catches for 64 yards during his time with the team.
The 24-year-old also had difficulty with ball security, as he fumbled eight times in two years while returning kicks. He also had several issues with penalties and was suspended in 2018 for violating team rules.
It appears the Bills have decided to part ways with McKenzie and move on from the former Georgia Bulldog. The move comes as the team continues to look for ways to improve their offense and create more dynamic playmakers.
