The Buffalo Bills have agreed to terms with wide receiver Andre Holmes, the team announced Saturday.
Holmes, 28, played the role of a third or fourth receiver, along with Seth Roberts, behind Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree last season for the Raiders. But he also is a big target in the red zone at 6-foot-4, 210 pounds, and he made a name for himself as a special-teams ace alongside Taiwan Jones.
Holmes had nine special-teams tackles, which ranked third on the team, and recovered a fumble on a muffed punt at Jacksonville in Week 7. He also led the Raiders with 50 receiving yards on four catches, including a touchdown, in Oakland's playoff loss at Houston.
His production has faded as the Raiders have improved, going from 47 catches for 693 yards and four touchdowns for a 3-13 team in 2014 to 14 catches for 201 yards and three touchdowns for a 7-9 team in 2015 to 14 catches for 126 yards and three touchdowns for a 12-4 playoff team last season.
Holmes, who had a base salary of $2 million in 2016, originally entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent out of Hillsdale College with the Vikings in 2011.
