The Buffalo Bills could soon reunite running back LeSean McCoy and wide receiver Jeremy Maclin. McCoy revealed recently that he is recruiting his former Philadelphia Eagles teammate. Maclin is currently a free agent after being released by the Kansas City Chiefs this month.  

"I know he could help us out tremendously. I've been doing my recruiting already, and don't be surprised if it happens," McCoy said according to ESPN

McCoy might be doing the right thing because Buffalo is missing two notable wideouts this offseason. ESPN mentioned in its report that the Bills are without Sammy Watkins and Zay Jones. Watkins is recovering from a foot surgery, while the rookie Jones is dealing with a knee injury. 

It is uncertain if Maclin will have significant contributions to Buffalo. Aside from saving money, perhaps one of the reasons why Kansas City parted ways with him was his poor performance in the 2016 NFL season. The 29-year-old was troubled by a groin injury and played in only 12 games. This led to him recording career-lows 44 receptions for 536 yards and two touchdowns. 

If Maclin can return to a hundred percent, then it is possible that he would be a key piece on offense for the Bills. Before his terrible outing with the Chiefs last season, he had splendid 2014 and 2015 seasons. He tallied more than 1,000 receiving yards in each campaign. 

Besides McCoy, ESPN also stated that Buffalo's starting quarterback, Tyrod Taylor, is joining the recruitment of Maclin. The 27-year-old reportedly plans to speak with the available wide receiver and the Bills coaches. 

From the looks of it, there is a good chance that McCoy and Maclin will again play in one team. Hopefully, Buffalo considers signing the free agent with ample time remaining ahead of the new season.
