Earlier this week, NFL Insider Ian Rapoport reported that the Buffalo Bills brought in former Wildcat wide receiver Jeff Badet for a workout.

Badet, 26, played football at Kentucky from 2013-2016 before transferring to Oklahoma to finish his collegiate career in 2017. After going undrafted, the 5-foot-11 receiver was signed by the Minnesota Vikings as a free agent in 2018.

He was drafted fourth overall in the XFL by the Dallas Renegades before joining the Washington Football Team during the 2020 NFL season.

Badet saw limited snaps during his three-game stint in Washington, but there are lots of ways a player with his 4.27 speed can be utilized in Buffalo’s high-powered offense. Whether it’s returning punts, learning some tools of the trade from one of the league’s top receivers in Stefon Diggs, or catching passes from star quarterback Josh Allen, the former Wildcat would be walking into a great situation if he works out a deal with the Bills.

Speed kills, and let us never forget how it killed many-a SEC defenders. Here’s to hoping Badet sticks somewhere this offseason!

    Bet you are OK with Wan’dale coming to UK from Nebraska though right ? The kid tried to put himself in a position to further his career by going to a high powered PASSING offense that gets a ton of exposure. If you played WR, would you rather play for Oklahoma with guys like Baker Mayfield and Kyler Murray, or guys like Terry Wilson and Stephen Johnson ? Not a knock on the UK QB’s, but a WR wants the football. Stephen Johnson threw for 2037 yards and 13 TD’s in 2016, Baker Mayfield threw for 4627 yards and 43 TD’s in 2017 the year Badet played for the Sooners.
