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!
