Bills Newest WR Shakir Learning A Lot From Two Key Vets

PITTSFORD, NY (WHEC) – Heading into the season, it’s no secret the Bills need Wide Receiver depth. They’ve addressed holes in the offseason by bringing in Jamison Crowder, Tavon Austin, and drafting Khalil Shakir, who some eyes will be on through training camp.

A Boise State grad, Shakir was taken 158th overall by Buffalo in this year’s NFL draft. He ranks 5th in school history in receptions (208) and 6th in career 100-yard receiving games (10). Though it’s a big jump to the pros, he’s under the tutelage of two experts.

During practice on the 2nd day of training, there was some miscommunication between him and others. QB Josh Allen and WR Stefon Diggs lent a helping hand, something that Shakir feels goes a long way.

"You see what they’ve done in their careers so far, and they’re only they’re getting better and better and better. And, you know, that’s exactly what I want to do with my career every single day. Every single second, every minute, every day, every week, year, you know, months. Just keep stacking days like them because, you know, they come out every single day and they take their play to the next level every single day."
