The Buffalo Bills have gotten extremely thin at wide receiver in recent weeks after both Robert Woods and Marcus Easley went down with injuries. On Monday, however, they added to their wide receiver corps.

The Bills announced they have signed wideout Leonard Hankerson and placed Easley on injured reserve.

Hankerson began the year with the Atlanta Falcons but was placed on injured reserve. He was then waived and claimed by the New England Patriots where he only appeared in one game and did not record a catch. Hankerson was released by the Patriots just two days ago.

This season, he has 26 catches for 327 yards and three touchdowns. He’ll provide some depth behind Sammy Watkins and Chris Hogan with just one game remaining on the schedule. The Bills will take on the New York Jets in the season finale on Sunday as they’ll look to play spoiler.
